There have been 82 coups in Africa between 1960 and 2000.

Since 2013, 20% of African countries have had a coup.

In the last two years, there has been a coup in Mali, Chad, Guinea and Sudan and the unconstitutional removal of governments in Tunisia, Burundi, and Algeria.

Africa is becoming known as the coup continent yet again.

Jean-Jacques Cornish, Africa Report

It has become contagious. A country that has had a coup is likely to have another one, and those around it are likely to have it.
