Food for Africa

2008-07-18 00:00

LAST month I spent time in five countries to the north. At some stage a return home had to happen but arriving back in Howick and reflecting back on these countries I realised that you cannot leave Africa.

What a pleasure to travel from Matatiele to Maclear on the new tar road. I soon came across the massive exotic plantations that many believe must be eliminated from our rural areas because they are alien. Let us not forget that these same plantations provide jobs and wealth to the people who would otherwise be held in the poverty trap so common to Africa. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
