The meagre performance in the poll can be attributed to three major reasons: chronic corruption within the ANC ruling cadre, skyrocketed unemployment, unabridged inequality. Sadly, these social problems have given birth to other dangerous and…

Africa: Just Do Like others And Remain Where You Are

Aside from corruption, one of the greatest problems facing Africa today is the desire to copy from others, instead of being authentic. Innovation is the mother of creativity.
