But if openDemocracy's 2050 vision is realized in Africa, it will be because its long-oppressed people were finally able to overthrow dictators and power-hungry leaders who dominate the continent. Reformers became strong enough to build genuine, people-based democracies and strong economies that fulfill their people's aspirations, and thereby could resist powerful international forces to whom too many leaders now pander."
