In this study, the author focuses on Ethiopia as a case study, to argue that the root cause of Africa's poverty lies in the neglect of the indigenous knowledge, traditional practices and local institutions of the continent's peoples. He further contends that this has been brought about either by external factors or set in by endogenous forces. To provide a remedy to the problem, the scholar proposes the putting in place of mechanisms through which the efforts of ordinary peoples and governments are combined to address the problem from its root causes.
