Evidently brotherhood breads success

15 February 2013, 10:00

‘Damn those Nigerians; Indians; Chinese; Zimbabweans etc. making money in our country’. These are the usual words echoed by natives referring to foreign business people.

Irrespective of where in the world, natives tend to always moan about foreign businessmen in their homeland.

If I were to migrate to another country, be it for education or work or both. I will make sure I succeed. One thing I will do is group with my kind (fellow countrymen).  This is the brotherhood I’m pointing out in this post. And because I’m in that country with a purpose, I’m likely to succeed.

How is this view? For instance when a Nigerian plans to look for work in another country, say South Africa, he gets in contact with fellow countrymen already in SA. These are the people who will either give him work until he is able to stand on his own or help him find work. This fosters mentorship.

This brotherhood I am emphasizing stands on the strength of a common goal (education or work), available and unselfish mentorship and not being shy of how you make money in the meantime.

Can we now apply this ‘brotherhood’ to our fellowship as South Africans, Zambians, Africans, Yorubas, Ma-Pedi; Zimbabweans, Ama-Zulu.

Partnership is a weapon that will surely win our battles in 2013. Mighty is experience mixed with inexperience!
