Review by: ReadersEbooks on Dec. 16, 2012 :
This book illustrates why the Dark Continent remains in poverty to a great extent. It shows the greed, tribalism, political manipulation, both internally and from abroad, that has characterized the African scene, and continues to do so. In many ways, the name of the country Nibana could easily be changed to Zimbabwe or South Africa!
‘The Mine’ is a book that will make the reader angry and annoyed, at the lost opportunities of the great powers in the way they managed their withdrawal from Africa, and at the unbridled greed of their political successors in African countries. Wish that it did not so accurately reflect the truth of Africa.
