Which of these African problems (specifically Health, Safety & Environment) need to be addressed urgently with a solution Could it be Road Traffic Accidents as seen lately hitting news headlines? Could it be the spate of environmental pollutions(from air, land to sea)? Could it be Cooking Gas Cylinder Accidents? Could it be Fire outbreaks in homes as recently heard in the news? Poor Fire fighting Equipment & Response? Could it be the untold water transport accidents by commercial boats? Could it be leadership negligence in curbing these Health, Safety & Environment problems? Could it be Poor funding and investment for responsible agencies to enforce policies? Is it about Africa's attitude to reactive instead of proactive measures to these problems? What else do you think is most urgent for us as Africans to address urgently?

You mentioned so many negative situations here.
 Leadership negligence should be addressed first, because when that is gotten right, any other thing will follow.

Yes, you can't talk of leaders without talking about followers. Africa has an orientation started from the forefathers of Africa not to question or challenge leaders/elders. This is concept behind most of Africans leaders tend to remain in power till death.  Followers are another problem because many of these followers end up in government.

Africa needs to urgently address the remarkable height of road traffic accident in the continent. World Health organization reported that Africa's road traffic accident rate is the highest in the world. This is partly attributable to the rapid rate of motorization in many developing countries that has occurred without a concomitant investment in road safety strategies and land use planning. While road traffic fatality rates are decreasing in some high-income countries, the rapid increase in road traffic crashes in low- and middle income countries has driven an overall global increase in deaths and injuries.
Indeed, current trends suggest that road traffic injuries will become the fifth leading
cause of death by 2030, with the disparity between high- and low-income countries
further accentuated.
Nonetheless, evidence from many countries shows that dramatic successes in preventing road traffic injuries can be achieved through concerted efforts at national level. A number of countries, such as Australia, Canada, France, the Netherlands, Sweden and the United
Kingdom have achieved steady declines in road traffic death rates through coordinated, multi-sectoral responses to the problem. Such responses involve implementation of a number of proven measures that address not only the safety of the road user, but also vehicle safety, the road environment and post-crash care. We need to act now. Who else can inform us on urgent HSE issues Africa need to address.

No one above is less important, all should be tackled by Government in all level. Because these are the things that make our society habitable.
But when would all these complain end? When Africans talk about Government they talk brilliantly but when they assume office they tend to behave in a such a away that keep the continent in the worst state it was.  So what is the problem?
