Sports & Economics Part I By Leslie Koroma


It is a known fact that Africa is blessed with not just natural mineral resources but a deeply talented people who thrive in all arena’s of life. Not to downplay the significance and contributions of African’s and people of African descent around the world in other walks of life like technology, engineering and medicine, Africans and people of African descent are known to be most dominant in sports around the world.


While it is a stated and true fact that Africans dominate the sports landscape around the world and make a very handsome living doing it, African nations and national sports apparatuses in pretty much all 54 African states are afflicted with poverty and very low caliber, dirt poor sports league and institutions. This begs the question as to what is wrong with this scenario, when other nations around the world are enjoying the fruits of bubbling sports leagues and resource rich sports institu- tions. The answers are varied and myriad, but one can immediately point to the number one culprit and cancer that has been eating away at African nations since most acquired independence from European colonial powers and that is CORRUPTION. Following immediately in the heels of Corruption is the issue of mismanagement.
