Africanism and Ubuntu

24 February 2012, 14:13
The Nation appreciates the words of the President in his state of the nation speech. It would be much better , if he had put more emphasis on the ideologies of Africanism. Africanism is a conceptualised as directly proportionate to ‘UBUNTU’ in the African context.
It is that time where we need to embrace the Spirit of Ubuntu  in our business objectives. The African Culture, understands that development in the full sense of the word, whether socially; economically and spiritually is a collective effort of the Nation, hence the resources and wealth is not partly contributed to the individual, but belongs and owned by All who live and work in the community.
Therefore it is the duty of the state and the private sector to develop strategic concepts that will empower and encapacitate its members. Development is a dual strategy between the employer and the employee, thus involves both parties in the success of the given task. Private companies, such as the mining industry should be able to provide means to its workers to share in the resources that they produce.
The socio-economic imbalances would be quickly addressed if we all partake in the management and implementation strategies of the company that we work for. It is desirable for each person to understand his viability in the company and thereby contribution is undertaken with less effort, since the global objectives of the company are visibly clear, and inclusive of all stakeholders. Public and private enterprises should have a relative close relationship with the community they serve, such that to understand the needs of the people, rather than wait for a strike, before they can address basic, and imperative issues in our society.
Africanism is not just an ideology but a means of association, that an individual or group is compelled  to work for the benefit  of ALL, contributing his/her Resources for the Development and Growth of the whole ‘NATION’.
Africa is for all who work and live, people who undertake to promote and sustain  the Welfare of  this country.
