Healthy and genuine development policies in Africa must be founded upon the principles and patterns of African civilisation. The greatest cause of distortion in African development policies is the fact that policy makers have crafted development policies for Africa out of the principles and patterns of Western civilisation. The triumph of the African Slave Trade, and conquest of Africa by the West, resulted in the rejection of the concept and historical validity of African civilisation. The paper proposes a methodological principle for the formulation of realistic, healthy, and genuine development policies for Africa.
