There’s no famine in Africa – just overpopulation, corruption, backwardness and violence

Here we go again. Yawn! Yet another supposed famine in Africa. And the useless, corrupt, Islamophiliac UN is claiming that the world is possibly facing “the greatest humanitarian disaster in 60 years”.

So, prepare yourself for endless BBC and Channel 4 reports showing starving children and endless charity TV ads featuring multimillionaire, tax-avoiding, virtue-signalling celebs telling you to give your money to greedy, self-serving, corrupt, wasteful charities.

The UN has identified four countries which are supposedly at risk from serious famine – Yemen, South Sudan, Somalia and Nigeria.

So, let’s have a look at these four countries and try to  guess why their people don’t have enough to eat:

Yemen

Here’s Yemen’s population growth:

In 1960 there were about 5 million Yemenis. Now there are over 25 million.

Yet Yemeni agriculture (like agriculture in so many Mooserlum countries) probably hasn’t evolved for the last thousand years. So, of course there isn’t enough food to sustain this irresponsible population growth.

Oh, and in addition to population growth that is totally out of control, the Yemenis (like so many good Mooserlum countries) have decided to have a civil war.

Moreover, Yemen is number 170 out of 176 on Transparency International’s list of the world’s most corrupt countries. Most of the little money the country does receive gets looted by the ruling elites and put into offshore bank accounts rather than being invested in things like food production, healthcare, education, roads etc.

So, what’s the reason for Yemen’s famine? Lack of food? Or overpopulation, corruption, backwardness and civil war?

South Sudan

As South Sudan is a fairly new country, here’s the population growth rate for Sudan:

In 1960 there were less than 12 million Sudanese. Now there are over 50 million.

(Incidentally, looking at the chart above, we can expect to soon be told there’s also famine in Ethiopia)

Yet Sudanese agriculture (like agriculture in so many Mooserlum countries) probably hasn’t evolved for the last thousand years. So, of course there isn’t enough food to sustain this irresponsible population growth. And when there are too few resources and too many people, civil war inevitably breaks out. And South Sudan has been engaged in civil war almost from the moment the country was founded in 2011.

Moreover, South Sudan is number 175 out of 176 on Transparency International’s list of the world’s most corrupt countries. Yup, it’s the world’s second most corrupt country. Congratulations to South Sudan’s rulers. That’s quite an achievement. This means that most of the little money the country does receive gets looted by the ruling elites rather than being invested in things like food production, healthcare, education etc.

So, what’s the reason for South Sudan’s famine? Lack of food? Or overpopulation, corruption, backwardness and civil war?

Somalia

Here’s the population growth for Somalia:

In 1960, the population of Somalia was less than 3 million. Now it’s probably over 10 million.

Ooohh, surely even a progressive, holier-than-thou, West-loathing, mentally-retarded Guardian reader could start to see some similarities between these countries supposedly facing ‘famine’.

Yet Somali agriculture (like agriculture in so many Mooserlum countries) probably hasn’t evolved for the last thousand years. So, of course there isn’t enough food to sustain this irresponsible population growth. And when there are too few resources and too many people, civil war inevitably breaks out. I’m not sure whether these is full-on civil war in Somalia at the moment (there usually is) or just local tribal and religious conflicts and quite honestly, I don’t really care. But I suspect there is widespread violence preventing any form of economic development.

Somalia, at number 176, is the world’s most corrupt country on Transparency International’s list of the world’s most corrupt countries. So, more congratulations are due. That’s quite incredible managing to be the world’s most corrupt country. After all, there’s a fair bit of stiff competition. Most of the little money the country does receive gets looted by the ruling elites rather than being invested in things like food production, healthcare, education etc.

So, what’s the reason for Somalia’s famine? Lack of food? Or overpopulation, corruption, backwardness and civil war?

Nigeria

This is the real ‘big beast’. Nigeria’s population was ‘only’ about 50 million in 1960. Now it’s about 170 million and by 2050 is set to hit 300 million.

Where is Nigeria going to find enough food to feed these hundreds of millions? Especially as Nigeria is descending into civil war between the Christians and the adherents of the Religion of Peace.

As for corruption, Nigeria is famous for making every one of its rulers and their thousands of cronies and hangers-on billionaires from stealing the country’s oil revenues. Though Nigeria is only at number 136 on Transparency International’s list of the world’s most corrupt countries. So the utterly venal, kleptocratic Nigerians are angels compared to the execrable Somalis, Yemenis and South Sudanese.

So, what’s the reason for Nigeria’s famine? Lack of food? Or overpopulation, corruption, backwardness and civil war?

Conclusion

For fifty years, the West has sent more money each year to Africa than Europe received each year for just five years under the Marshall Plan after WWII. Europe managed to rebuild itself in just a few years. After over fifty years of an avalanche of money every year, Africa now has more people in extreme poverty than it had in 1960.

So, where have our billions in aid gone? Where are all the roads and clean water plants, where are the booming farms? Where are the hospitals and universities? Why is the whole continent just a stinking, impoverished, disease-ridden, starving, worthless cesspit?

If you want to give money to charity, sponsor a guide dog in Britain. That will do a lot more good than wasting your money on Africa.

For those who haven’t seen it, here’s a short (3 minutes) video I made showing the utter futility of sending any money to any African country:

  • NoMore

    Great summary. Europe may have done well out of the brief colonisation but the money has long since been paid back in charity. Africa has had enough money – billions of aid, medicine and technology from the incredibly generous White Western world has just gone into making even more Africans the world has quite enough of already. Sort yourselves out and tie a knot in it chaps.
