Holding Kleptocrats Accountable & Recovering Stolen Funds for Africa’s Betterment



Africa Mbele (pronounced m-BELL-ay: Swahili for forward) was birthed out of numerous conversations among concerned Diasporans’ about these dire conditions facing Africa.

Africa is full of vibrancy in its heritage, culture, resources, and unsurpassed natural wonder. Yet extreme corrupt practices and kleptocracy continue to plague Africa as an underlying epidemic. The UN estimates that Africa loses about $88.6 billion of its gross domestic product (GDP), annually due to illicit financial flows.

We plan to build a diasporic movement to leverage recoverable assets by investing these resources in innovate projects to improve food production, energy access, communications, water and waste management, education, and health and wellbeing services for the greater good of the most vulnerable in Africa.
