In order to host the olympic games, you have to send in an application (It is very competitive to host the olympics). It also costs lots of money to have the appropriate stadiums build and accommodations for all the athletes, workers, and the fans to stay in. And I would think Africa has its own issues they're dealing with so unless your an olympic athlete, the people there have much bigger things to worry about.

Olympic sports contenders are not paid for the competition. Until the 1970s, Olympic athletes had to be amateur, not paid athletes. However, some countries' athletes practiced full time; others were very limited as to who could sponsor their living and coaching expenses.
Most Olympic athletes do not get paid for winning at the Olympics. Many of the countries will pay the travel expenses of the athletes. Most athletes are sponsored and will receive bonus money from the sponsors for doing well or medaling at the Olympics. For more information, please refer to the related link.
