Evan Lieberman, Mutemi wa Kiama, and Bakary Sambe join Claude Grunitzky on this episode of Limitless Africa to discuss how we can stop ethnic interests from influencing politics in Africa. The episode discusses how the ‘family’ and ‘tribe’, traditional ways of organizing African societies, can also be a source of conflict and how unscrupulous leaders can stoke tensions or focus resources on certain groups.
