India has a population much bigger than the entire African continent, but the country is managed by one prime minister and 23 ministers.
Africa, with almost the same population like India, has 54 heads of States and over 1080 (one thousand eighty) ministers, who collectively still achieve less than a single prime minister in India.
China with almost the same size of population like Africa has no permanent members of Parliament. The 3000 members of the National people congress seat only for few weeks during the year to vote on the laws submitted by the executive branch. Afterwards, they all go back to their regular jobs.
Collectively, Africa has 13 320 (thirteen thousands tree hundred twenty) members of parliament which are full time employees on the payroll of states with skinny budget.
We could do better with less.
These micro states in Africa are just waste of time and money.
