Property rights are often weak or unclear. Even in Britain, the trauma of moving house is often put on a par with divorce or bereavement. Imagine trying to buy and sell without a title deed. In West Africa,less than 2% of land is held by paper title, and that is mainly in towns. Most people hold rights to land and property through social bonds. African government have often muddied the water on land rights. Most inherited the powers established by colonial administration over land, water and minerals.
