In this study, the author argues that the root cause of Africaís poverty lies in the neglect of the indigenous knowledge, traditional practices and local institutions of the continentís peoples, focusing on Ethiopia as a case study. Mammo further contends that this has been either brought about by external factors or set in by indigenous forces. The author proposes putting mechanisms in place to combine the efforts of ordinary peoples and governments in order to address the problem from its root causes.
