Car­toon char­ac­ters

Finweek English Edition - - Nothing Sacred -

IN A RE­CENT PIECE on the Zim­babwe sit­u­a­tion in the In­ter­na­tional Her­ald Tri­bune, the BBC’s Mukoma Wa Ngugi coined a nice term to de­scribe the African trend to ig­nore the out­comes of pop­u­lar elec­tions. He calls it “car­i­ca­ture democ­racy” and says it re­flects the fact “that we have come to ex­pect and de­mand much less of Africa”.

Quite sad, re­ally.
