Corruption in Black Africa

According to the author, corruption is not a specific trait of the contemporary African societies. Of course, the corrupting power of money causes great damage in Africa and cannot only be explained by the brutal change in some of the social structures. Yet, the very concept of corruption is basically foreign to the traditional African mentality. So, the accusations of corruption brought against the African leaders, which are today more and more justified, call for some qualifications and explanations. It is also true that the sanctions imposed on the corrupters, or presumed corrupters, quite often have ulterior motives.
