10 Laziest Countries in Africa

Interested in to know which are the laziest countries in Africa? Then keep reading Insider Monkey’s article about them! I was extremely curious about these countries. My country couldn’t be said to be lazy as we work at least 12 hours a day. We are very hardworking – we need to. Salaries are low and everything is expensive.There are opinions that the laziest people are, the dirtiest is their country. However, we didn’t make any of these correlations. The same is with the question of the laziest race in the world. What we found as the most appropriate answer to what makes one country lazy is the physical activity of its population.

Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of the  laziest countries in Africa from their list.

The first one is Kenya. Kenya is appointed as one of the hard-working countries, but it also occupies a low position on the list of inactive people – only 16.5% are inactive. Nevertheless, they are described as the brightest people among Africans who never give up even in hardest circumstances. They survived many years of starving and crisis, winning even in hardest situations. As the matter of fact, the main reason for their poorness and slow development are corruption and ethnic divisions. The second country should be Ethiopia. We all remember this country, a symbol of the poorness, hunger and starving children in the past. Although some surveys put Ethiopia on the list of hard working countries, other numbers, like a low number of literate and employed people and the bad economy indicate that this country is among the laziest ones. On the list of inactive people, they are in the middle, with 19.3%. Nobody denies their struggle to improve the situation in the country, but as if they have lack of flightiness and will to really change something. At last, but not least let’s check out South Africa. There are many parameters that prove laziness of South Africans. First of all, they are in the middle of the list of laziest nations in the world according to a number of steps they make daily. As they calculated, every South Africa’s citizen makes only 4,105 steps during the day! If this number is not persuasive enough, let’s say that even 52.4% of them are inactive according to Guardian’s list. However, let’s not be that strict about South Africans since VenasNews puts them on the list of the hard working nation, but on very low position, almost close to the list of lazy ones.
