    Africa have a long way to go. I dont see why our leaders can’t go out of the continent and recruit smart intelligent Africans with good ideas to help our people. If China can sponsor companies in china to aquire Intellectual properties by stealing to go help it economy, why can’t Africa ? Africa has all the natural resources there is so why are our leaders putting our monies in switch banks and signing agreement that doesn’t benefit the people. WHY? This makes me sick and I am tied of this nonsense.
