Which African country has the best army?


After doing some research on the tribes that Africans once had, like Shaka Zulu's tribe, the various ones that fought the British in the Anglo-Zulu wars, it occured to me wait...in current times who is the strongest nation in Africa...?

I personally think Egypt has the strongest army while nations like Kenya and Libya are the weakest... But what do you guys think? You can pick any African country, even if the country was dissaloved like the Somalian armed forces. Also what African nation do you guys think is the weakest? Sorry for being gone for so long, but I have had a serious problem with Ants...and other problems. -ND4

Shouldn't Egypt be number one because it held out agisant Isreal, the U.K, and France until the Soviet Union and the U.S pressured the trio to leave Egypt alone?

Don't mention it, nit-picking, pedantry and stating the bleeding obvious are my specialities.

No... It's army is large, which is different. It has only ONE advantage over SA. It has Abrams. But Armour alone isn't sufficient. While it may have a strong Army, SA has a stronger armed forces
