Excusas a la corrupción

"I think what’s hampered advancement in Africa is that for many years we’ve made excuses about corruption or poor governance. That this was somehow the consequence of neo-colonialism, or the West has been oppressive, or racism. I’m not a believer in excuses.”
-- US President Barack Obama ahead of his first official trip to a country in Sub-Saharan Africa, arguing that the United States and Western nations can’t be blamed for “disastrous policies” in some African countries or for the economic collapse in Zimbabwe in the past 15 to 20 years.
