Consequences of Making a Wrong Diagnosis of African Problems

Still on migration problems. While we all must commend African leaders for taking the initiative – after much pressure from the Western countries, although – to bring back home, stranded African migrants from the slave camps in Libya, the worrisome question still remains. Is that initiative the best decision? Perhaps, it might be the best decision for now; but is it really the solution to the current migration crises, which has clearly led to a modern-day slavery?

2018: The Year For Good Governance

As an African, look around you. Reflect on your past. Ask yourself two simple but straightforward questions. Are you satisfied with your life?

Africa: The Land of Scavengers.

In African, we often like to complain about our woes. We blame our leaders for all the shortcomings, from endemic corruption, nepotism, favouritism to miserable basic social services like water, housing, electricity, education, healthcare etc. But have we once asked ourselves who voted those lousy leaders in? We hear that power belongs to the people, but how much have we tried to transcend this into a reality? Hardly ever. Yes, elections are often manipulated and corrupt judges bought over…
