While ‘official’ economic activity contracted in the hands of an incompetent, predatory elite, ‘real’ economic life became increasingly informalized in unofficial enterprise and trade channels that formally escaped state control. This evolution again confirms Janet Roitman’s claim that the relation between the state and the non-state in Africa has often been highly ambiguous: while antagonism often exists with regard to the state’s regulatory authority, complicity is also evident insofar as the state depends on these various non-state forces for rents and the means of redistribution (Roitman, 2001).
