Africa is one of the well known continents in the world. It is known for its good tourism and other impressive natural recourses. But there are some things which are deterring Africa’s development which factually lead us to depend on other countries for support.
Africa can be totally self reliant yet most African countries have been reluctant on foreign support since independence and this is very sad.
Africa itself is a great place to live for both the dwellers and foreigners due to it’s rich environment yet, we are always seeking for greener pastures.
Our environments are poor and we should be ashamed of this. If Africa is a good place as we claim, why then do we always seek for visas?
This means there is a problem somewhere. Consequently, the failure of Africa is everybody’s fault, I mean you and I living here.
Above all, we should blame our leaders for their corruptive and selfish acts which have caused the whites to surpass us.
In each country, we believe there is a government that controls it’s affairs but what do we see after voting the leaders into power? Exporting our natural recourses, squandering our income and covering their messes are what they do! How can we develop with this?
Well, the leaders can’t be solely blamed for this because we the citizens have also failed to help ourselves. We the individuals do not believe in ourselves and neighbours.
We have the perception that what we will produce for ourselves is not quality. We have slaved our minds that can’t make the best goods for ourselves unless with the intervention of a white hand. And yes, this is what has caused us failure!
However, our education system has drastically contributed to Africa’s unsustainable development and it is another broad issue to talk. Africa is a good place and we need to stand up! STAND UP AFRICA!!!
