    Welcome to TFSA
    Is africa Werstern's student or wersten house maid?
    Or eastern mineral store?

    I'd suggest we have a self-image problem for starters...

    Is there a plan? One made by Africa for Africa?

    I can't help thinking Africa is mostly in survival mode - reactive, not proactive.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Africa is all about the survival of the elite. We have been asleep and have forgotten our roots. Africa used to be the richest continent as far as mineral values were concerned. We have our priorities totally screwed up. We need to take stock.

    oh yes!
    Africa problem is about its own mineral. Naturally Afeica is the richest continent in the earth, but the poorest continent in the world. Why because its own sons are full of the selfishnesses.
    Africa is not werstern student because a student always pratices what he learned from his teacher(and as we can see wersten world is always growing positivily) when Africa is collapsing gradually.
    So honestly africa is werstern Maid. We are made to clean, take care and assume werstern house. and for me that is why our Presidents always go to secure and hide their fortune there. African Diamons, Gold, woods, fishes, lands money are there in their banks while is a routine for a simple cityzen to send his children to school. I think we can say definitly no to all those nonsense. Am not reading through your mind but don't get confuse or say how can we say that Big no. The first thing I want from you is to tell me how do you feel ?

    hi Emilganos, and welcome to the forum

    Although South Africa isn't really Africa (we're an indipendant republic), there's still a lot to learn about African culture even from us.

    I'm not entirely convinced that Africa is so unique in its problems & the challenges it faces! No matter where you go in the world, almost every continent has its own share of skeletons in the cupboard. India, China, South America, Europe & even the mighty USA all have similar problems that are being ignored or even hidden from public view. Africa is not the only continent with megalomaniac leaders milking their countries dry & investing their ill-gotten gains in offshore bank accounts.

    hahhahahahahaha, HI! SoftDux
    Oh my friend who told you that South africa is not really part of Africa?
    Afica is a Continent and South africa is one of its 54 countries.
    Yes you are right by saying you have to learn about Africa, because when we say africa we mean 54 differents countries with thier multiple cultures, languages, people, and traditions so all of us we have to learn about africa. As charity begins at home you must start learning about africa by learning about South africa first.

    Listen. The guy that stated SA is not really a part of Africa let out a state secret. Please don't let anybody else know.

    Hi Mr MichaelB,
    I really appreciate your point of view but, We must aggree on one point. We can not compare Africa with China, Europe, South of America..or USA. Why? Because if
    Those Continents have mineral or raw materials they will seat at worlth summit for ever and ever.
    So why we as africans don't want to waste our time just to think about and how to manage our recourses to build our continent. that is my real question.

    hahahah my friend BBBEE;
    I think we must organise one day conference somewhere and the entry must be free to remaind our people that South africa is tightly part of Africa. I think it may change some somethings positively in the end of the day.
