ARISE AFRICA YOUR TIME HAS COME!
DANNY SUSIKWANA , Accountant, Zambia

AFRICANS HAVE A LOT TO OFFER TO THE WORLD AND MUST ARISE TO THE OCCASION.


I am convinced that the world would be a much better place if Africans took their rightful place in the many affairs which affect Africa in particular and those which affect the world in general. As Africans we have too many excuses why we remain underdeveloped and have accepted such stereotypes as 'poor countries, Third world, Least developed, etc'. I know it is a fact we have suffered too many evils inflicted by people from other parts of the world. Those sufferings should not crush us but must strengthen our resolve to pursue our own development agenda. We are the most resilient people on earth! The world needs us and we must put our house(Africa) in order.
African professionals who work within Africa as well as those who have settled in the diaspora must put their efforts together and develop Africa. No one will do it for us. I am not saying that Africans must not take up opportunities in other parts of the world. I am simply saying that they should never forget their roots. The world looks to Africa's raw materials as inputs into production which is eventually sold back to Africa as finished goods. How long will this continue? Can't Africa make a stand and insist on adding value and selling finished goods? There may have been reasons justifying that in the past but that should not continue!
I give credit to many Africans who are impacting the world in different areas of human endeavour. We need to do more! .
