Whilst Africa is hitting higher records of holding periodical presidential and general elections now than ever before, it is also increasingly becoming clearer that the continental leadership's zeal and regional political atmosphere to uphold, promote and sustain the core values of democracy in many democratic countries of the continent like in Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Equatorial Guinea, Ethiopia, Madagascar, Tunisia, Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, Malawi, Algeria, Angola or Cameroon, seem to be gradually dying off and systematically backsliding at the speed of lightening and thunder. Worse still, the little glorious hope and the limping expectations of exporting or expanding democracy to the remaining authoritarian states of Africa like Libya, Guinea Conakry and Swaziland or to the fragile, failed and ungovernable societies like Somalia, Sudan, DR Congo, Central African Republic, Uganda or Chad, seem to be seriously dwindling, if not evaporating. It is against this notorious background that, whilst providing a summative history and current status of democracy in the region, Democracy Under Attack attempts to systematically identify and comprehensively discuss some of the key challenges and core threats to the consolidation, workability and survival of democracy in Africa.
