Africa Ain’t Poor

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on September 24, 2009


What Africa needs is a new model of economics and development.

Despite all the setbacks and its history, Africa has the potential and power to shape its own destiny.

Africans should first believe in Africa. The person who preserved their talent was chastised, the one who invested their talents was rewarded.

All those preserved natural resources are God’s special bounty on earth for Africa and Africans. The challenge has always been to use them and to invest properly in the future. So far, we have been widespread plunder of the present and future generation, but, Africans have visions for a better life, and non-Africans should not look for wanting to bring a Saviour

In fact, there are many things to be positive about, including the development of microfinance institutions, the growth of the Internet and mobile phone, its wealth of human and natural resources, and biodiversity. Africa is not only what has gone wrong, as the international media often tries to depict. The ‘BBC’ had its own contribution to this particular conspiracy. Lately, the BBC is engaged in the “idle Africa Bashing” by broadcasting a very superficially and ignorantly researched documentary series, under the title, “Why is Africa poor?”
