Crimes are endemic especially those committed by political leaders. Africa is indeed bleeding from crimes such as embezzlement of funds, abuse of resources, human rights abuses, persecution and torture of people, and above all, non-prosecution of persons responsible for crimes committed. The non-prosecution of political heavy weights inversely encourages the continuation and perpetuation of transgressions that threaten to destroy Africa politically, economically and socially. Philosophically speaking acts of non-action against wrongdoing aspire to create a form of Leviathan and ensure that a new dynasty of political non-accountability and one-party exists. Such practices will be analyzed as ways of contributing to the system of under-developing the continent, in the end the paper suggests and appeals to the utilization of philosophical systems that humanize people such as Ubuntu philosophy.
