The narrative that Africa is rich because of its natural resources and a broad base of human capital is true but remains incomplete. While other nations progressively plan and implement carefully thought out ideas for developmental societies, Africa remains trapped in both covert and overt conflicts, political power struggles, famine and disasters. Some of the entrapments remain self-inflicted and induced. Despite the capitalist orientation transferred to many of us, Africa remains anchored on ‘ubuntu’, togetherness and collectivism.
