Contempt and impunity are their first and middle names. They treat their countries like person fiefdoms and the resources therein as their birthright to plunder. Their citizens are nothing but a herd to be whipped into submission towards advancing selfish gain. Meet the fast-dying African despots.
Our fools we have for African presidents have never bothered to learn from a single chapter of the history of vanquished African political leaders.
Case in point,Pharaoh Mubarak scoffed at his counterpart in Tunisia by claiming that the Egyptian domestic situation was very different from the one that was falling apart in Tunisia.
So being the real Pharaoh of Egypt with a huge military under his command, Mubarak turned down so many alternative offers for a quiet life in exile with a guaranteed immunity against prosecution and confiscation of his family assets.
The Pharaoh was so sure of himself to point where he chose to spend the rest of life in the resort city of Sham el-Sheikh as a statement of defiance against all the Egyptian people who wanted him out of power and gone for good from Egyptian soil and waters.
What a difference several weeks can make in the life of a one time mighty ruler of Egypt, it now turns out that Pharaoh Mubarak's family is in hot waters because of the pharaonic arrogance, hot temper, a lack of diplomatic skills, and an obstinacy that bordered on mulishness of their patriarch.
The Pharaoh is now languishing in prison, alongside his two sons, Gamal Mubarak, and Alaa Mubarak awaiting trial for misuse of power, corruption and a slew of other charges.
All the family's assets have been frozen, the Egyptian Court has dissolved the Mubarak Party, and all of his cronies and allies have been purged from the military, national police and civil service.
Pharaoh Mubarak and his sons now wish that they had accepted the offers to flee to quite and dignified exile in Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, Monaco or Australia.
The other arrogant former president is defeated Laurent Gbagbo, his wife, family and cronies who will be brought to justice.
While there is still hope that countless other Pavlovian fools like Robert Mugabe and others will face same fate that befell the Pharaoh of Egypt, his sons and cronies when the timing is right.
Ever wonder what causes mighty military organizations on the African continent to fall apart in the eye of the storm, when engaged with rebel forces?
Woe unto you the exported villager still enslaved in ethnic politics. The next candidate may as well be your tribal warlord. Good riddance to bigoted intellect.
