Failure of Democracy in Africa
Riek Yak Guandong , Student (University), South Sudan

Democracy is a good system of governance only in providing freedoms, rights and involving citizens in a decision-making process. However it felt short to secure harms, humiliation, insecurity corruption and poverty.

Democracy is a good system of governance but only in the developed countries where everybody is aware of rules and regulations and there are a many means to tackle law breakers. However democratic in Africa countries and Asia becomes shield of cheating. A leader can cheat, rig or steal votes to remain in power because they knew that there is no democratic in forcer to help those vulnerable people.

For example South Sudan where people are fighting because some people expressed their willingness to contest. Uganda 2016 General elections. The winner subjected to threat n intimidations as he committed crimes. Therefore if democratic is good system to be implemented and follows in aforementioned countries , why people keep dying yet leaders keep on killing their subordinates?
