The question is whether we are better off with his visits or not. This depends on where we are on the socio-economic spectrum. If we are young, naive, and flat broke, his visits are to our benefit, regardless of how annoying they might be. As we age and become more sophisticated, his visits are less of a blessing and more of an annoyance. I believe that pre-colonial Africa needed all the help that could be given. And the point that not all Africans have received of the Colonial powers' largess seems irrelevant. Most are at least somewhat better off.
