Various reasons has been submitted from different intellectuals, experts even African Victims of their own shadows, surprisingly none of them make correct sense to qualify even to be used as solutions.
Yes, Africa went to war just like any other continent on the planet and other continents though been the architects of Africa’s civil unrest , some not but victims of tribal wars have moved on without a question.
Political instability, corruption, Civil wars, economic instability, poverty, ethnic wars, racism, terrorism, lack of infrastructure and social development are just some of the symptoms of the actual problems.
I admit one will argue that these challenges Africa face are external due to Africa’s mineral wealth, yes to some extent but my view only suggests that, all African problems are self inflicted upon ourselves as individual states perhaps sometimes by regional leadership by openly allowing thieves in our backyard, little or no self esteem, believing that Africa is poor and lack of leadership to organize mindset to build Africa in one direction. Africa is a story of a poor farmer with a larger farm equivalent to the size of the entire African Continent who is waiting for the best season to plant the seeds for the best harvest meanwhile allowing the World to occupy and mine minerals. The African Poor Farmer is only aware of fruits which grows above the soil. A senior for Vice President Of Zambia, Mr Enoch Kavindele sold his Mukulumpe Farm on the Copperbelt, Zambia due to loses as a result of poor raining seasons, few months later only to find a productive fully functional copper mine.
The wealth of a rich man is in his holy city but the distraction of the poor is in their poverty. Africa’s wealth is in the soil, mountains, shores, rivers, mountains let’s first build our leaders and explore our riches.
