The above graph suggests that income inequality rather than sheer poverty is what leads to uprisings by the people. In both Tunisia and Egypt, the top 10% of the population take most of the country’s income for themselves and don’t leave much for the rest.
Morocco, Algeria, Gabon, and South Africa also seem to be in this category. While Nigeria and the other African countries don’t have such a huge income inequality.
Which means that the next uprising is more likely to happen in Algeria or Morocco rather than in Nigeria.
This is from the comments of this article and I couldn’t agree MORE.
