In Afrikan inhabitants, I believe.

2014-12-11 12:53

The current problems facing Afrika cannot only be solved by Afrikan bona fides.

I am of the believe that this continent belongs to all those who live in it.

Even outsiders are part of our societies We share the means of living.

We both depend on the same economical productions.

That makes us one people right?

African progress and throwbacks affect all of us.

We all contribute to Afrika's development and its declination.

A lot has happened in this docile continent; lives has been lost and lives has been saved. We cannot afford to go loose whatever we have.

Our biggest challenge is poverty and unemployment.

Poverty eradication must not only be the government's responsibility.

It is a responsibility of all those who live in this land to create and assist those who are disadvantaged; especially if you are capable of doing so.

All of the things that you have now, one day they will be gone.

We have witness people moving from hero to zero.

You children or your coming generation might also face poverty and unemployment.

They will need someone to help them out.

As I write these lines I am begging you to help out wherever you can.

One fundamental aspect that we need to teach ourselves is accountability, it must be our culture.

We must account for our actions; let us not allow to be used by friends and family. The smallest things that we ignore will cost us in the future.

Let us do away with greediness.

For us to be where we are today it was not only through the intellectually capacity that our great-grand fathers had.

It is a fact that the colonizers came with a candle in this continent.

They had plans to transform our continent and also cater from where they come from.

Truth is that in their hearts they were also filled with greediness and they became selfish by planning to take everything that we had.

Though they failed and they never thought of going back. They stared to find comfort.

Nevertheless they also had good plans about our land.

We are the product of colonization, oppression and all the sufferings that our continent has faced in the past and also continue face on daily basis.

We need to preach,enforce and practice cooperation and tolerance as we are unique.

Let us be a continent that believes in unity.

I believe that we can change despite our tainted image.

The change can happen is when change the way to look at things.

We can change if we believe in change.

Please believe.
