The issues that hinder Africa’s progress are real and prominent. Like grim reapers, poverty, hunger, famine, diseases, civil wars, dictatorships and droughts among other challenges surround Africa.
However, these challenges are not the only things that define our continent. Africa has beautiful people. It is up to us as African people to take responsibility for the continent’s progression. We cannot expect the good in our continent to shine like a bright light when we sit as grim reapers and magnify everything but the good in Africa. The stench of death will not be subdued unless we introduce new lively members to the ‘table.’ It is important to channel our efforts towards addressing these challenges in order for Africa to succeed.
