Why are coups always led by colonels?

Reading Time: 2 minutes

By Elizabeth Dickinson

Passport‘s brilliant editor, Joshua Keating, asked me a very good question the other day: why does it seem like African coups are always led by middle-ranking military officers? The recent coup in Niger was led by Col. Salou Djibo, a “little known commander of a platoon based near the capital.” Guinea’s coup in late 2008 put the erratic and paranoid Captain Moussa Dadis Camara at the country’s helm.  Then of course there’s Libya’s Col. Qaddafi, who has proclaimed himself King of Kings but hasn’t risen in military rank since seizing power in a coup in 1969.

Opinion: Double dealing will always be a means of survival for African leaders – Senoga Keefa

Reading Time: 3 minutes

The tendency of African leaders to declare how great their countries are, is a masterminded hoax. One would look at this trend as an absolute mockery to the people who are aggrieved because of the disorderliness and lawlessness in their countries.

These African leaders are only being cynical whenever they use these praising phrases while describing their nations. The extent of self-delusion by these leaders is unmatched.

Any citizen in any of these African countries can confirm that their countries are not close to being great as their leaders describe them to be.
