The technology wasn’t used properly which was the problem the electoral act mandates electronic transmission of results but that didn’t happen on election day there’s only so much tech can do in ensuring transparency. Concerning Southern Africa there’s the new coalition in Lesotho haven’t seen anything to see if they’ve made good on their promises.
He’s currently contesting the elections in fact he recently just got permission to inspect the ballots from the country’s electoral commission and the fact that he was able to use the courts to reclaim his mandate as governor in the past inspires some hope. Whether or not the results are completely legitimate just seeing how a minor party with barely any representation was able to become the second largest opposition in the national assembly and win in the stronghold of the president-elect shows that Nigerians are willing to work to improve themselves even if ethnicity and religion still played a huge role in this election.
Ok but who elected this transitional council? What makes them good choices for rebuilding the country’s institutions? Do they have detailed plans for what they’re going to do when they form the government? I think it’s crazy to believe they can repair the institutions of a country that has been dysfunctional since independence in the span of two years
i think it’s due to the fact that reddit is more for niche hobbies. Twitch isn’t that popular outside of the gaming sphere and even with the recent wave of lax moderation with girls wearing skimpy outfits doing softcore porn it’s still doesn’t have a broad appeal so it’s definitely more than you can’t make money off it that turns off people. For an app to make money it has to something that attract users in the first place and neither reddit nor fedi are doing that. The reason for the fediverse not being popular imo is due to the fact that most people don’t care about privacy, the ui and ux could use a lot of work ( I know most normie stuff isn’t doing too hot in that department either but libre software just has this look where you know it was made by technical people and not designers), people you know aren’t on it and also probably wont join just because you asked and the existing userbase is mostly technical people.
they’re called local currencies you can read more about the concept here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Local_currency
I just explained why a law would be a poor tool to solve this problem
All countries on the continent are not former france colonies and even for those that are we can clearly see states like senegal making real effort to create jobs so that completely negates the idea that france is responsible for everything wrong with Africa and further validates my talk about failure on the part of African governments
They have laws against child labour and all other ills that plague the continent so they wouldn’t need a new law to do this all they would need to do is enforce the law which is one of the major problems with Africa laws aren’t usually enforced and when they are it’s done often for political goals instead of justice furthermore it wouldn’t actually solve the problem at all. The way to solve the problem in the long term is to fix their system of governance so they can ensure all monies in the treasury are accounted for and are used for their intended purpose so that they can an environment in which people can well paying jobs, peace and dignity and in the term short term to put the parents in some skills training and ensuring the children don’t work in unsafe conditions instead of fining the poor parents.
individuals should be free to engage in any activity they see fit with the state’s only legitimate role to protect the life, liberty and property of it’s citizens, any force therefore that is not in retaliation to the use of force by another person no matter if the intention is to create a just society based on one’s ideals is immoral
Yeah but there would be consequences and a few dissenting votes wouldn’t change the predetermined outcome but would probably come at the risk of harm of yourself and your family
