No. Colonisation attempted to bring European civilisation to "cultures" incompatible with European civilisation. The population of sub-Saharan Africa have evolved to tribal relationships with all THAT entails.
What has taken place in post colonial Africa has demonstrated that pouring money into a money pit with the expectation that it will change anything is a false hope.
Even physical infrastructure that was gifted to the artificially designated states after self rule was returned has been allowed to rust and rot.
We've tried. And have continued to try. Do-gooders have whined on about what we have a duty to do. Well maybe we had a duty to try and we have tried.
