CONSITUTION AMENDMENT;Due to presence of democracy in African continent ,the amendment of constitution is done by public as we know that all curren constitutions are from colonialist ,therefore the rulling Government must make changes on it in order to be current/uptodate for example when we look on TANZANIA ‘S CONSITUTION is from BRITISH, Also KENYA,UGANDA,ZAMBIA,and in other hand the old one may bring conflict as we saw in KENYA,TANZANIA .

CIVIL AND TRIBAL WAR;this is also one of the negative effect of democracy caused by politicians in Africa .it may rise into war due to misunderstanding among themselves as politicians or with the GOVERNMENT it may be civil war or tribal wars,for example what happed to KENYA due to 2007 general election whereby KIKUYU hate LUO,KIKUYU HATE KALENJIN ,RAILA is luo man and he won but kibaki kikuyu man denied to leave position /chair to the winner who was RAILA ODINGA,Between KABILA PRESIDENT OF DRC AND REBELS FROM RWANDA[M23] this war is civil war ,alshabab and Somali GOVERNMENT,BOKO HARAM AND NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT,REBELS OF MUSLIMS AND MALI’S GOVERNMENT,FORMER SUDAN AND SOUTHERN REBELS,UGANDA AND LORD RESISTANCE ARMY.This story may help people to change and learn how to use democracy effectively,also CHAD,CENTRAL AFRICA REPUBLICAN with rebels.
RELIGIUOS WARS;As what we are seeing in NIGERIA,ZANZIBAR ,KENYA , this may result in to the rise of terrorist like al queda,alshabab ,booko haram , not only this story can touch African continent but also other continents like ASIA,MIDDLE EAST,LATIN AMERICAN, FAR EAST ,EUROPE,,AUSTRALIA ,agood example is rebels tamil taiga and SRILANKA’S GOVERNMENT,INDONESIA WITH MUSLIMS REBELS.
