Time waits for no one

The one thing I really like about the clock, is that it keeps on going forward – not backward. Forward ever, backward never. If the clock stops going forward, it is in most cases, due to mechanical or battery problems. Otherwise, it is all about forward ever. Hum. Interesting indeed, isn’t it? How does this reflect human life? Life goes on. Does it apply to the African situation? The time factor does indeed explain certain issues in human life….

Is the Wind of Change Blowing Towards Angola and Liberia?

When the former Defence Minister of Angola Joao Lourenco became the country’s President last year and vowed to eradicate nepotism and corruption in his country, very few people believed his seriousness. Not that Joao Lourenco is considered a liar. Not necessarily so. The fact is that many Africans have grown used to and indeed tired and fed up of sweet-mouthed African leaders, who promise paradise to their subjects only to give them hell on earth.

Who is the Captain of that sinking ship?

  There is an adage that says that you cannot have two captains on a ship. Not really, that there cannot be two captains on a ship; after all, you always have more than one in a plane. You can have two captains, but they cannot command the ship at the same time.
