Well, politics in Africa is very, very interesting.

The lengths at which some politicians go during election season to garner votes and convince electorates they are up to the task of making their lives better is embarrassingly hilarious.

Funny enough and most at times, politicians seeking re-election are the worst culprits. Some go absent without leave and ghost on their people when they gain power but reappear like they finally found their way home after being lost for so long bearing ridiculous gifts and doing hypocritical things just to convince people to re-elect them.

With Africans becoming more discerning and not buying into their cunning tricks and antics, they are almost running out of ideas of conning electorates. As the saying goes, “You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time.”
