POLITICAL REPRODUCTION IN POSTCOLONIAL AFRICAN SOCIETIES
Aze Kerte Amoulgam Political reproduction is a survival mechanism of a political system by legacy from generation to generation. The actors of the system seek to preserve their achievements by recruiting new actors who understand the rules of operation of the system and apply it in turn. Political reproduction is most often successful in societies where family and community ties are very strong . It is based on an already pre-existing group dynamic and on a first circle of family and traditional allegiance. The heirs of the system will generally not want to change it, because they are the first beneficiaries. Those who are tempted to leave the ship are under great pressure from their loved ones or the system in place. It takes a lot of courage and conviction to oppose the system, which is capable of even eliminating its dissident elements. Most often, when you affirm your opposition to the system, it is poorly perceived by both the actors of the system and the opponents of the system.
