This space was inspired by my personal experiences in Africa and abroad and a realisation that the solutions to the problems and challenges of Africa, and the world for that matter, will not be found by entrusting them to the politicians of today. The challenges of corruption, poverty, lack of basic amenities to the people, poor infrastructure and the multitude of other challenges will take a lot more than just political wisdom that is in many cases misguided and not geared towards a general quest to alleviate the plight of the people.
What then is the solution? The answer to this is not so obvious. One thing I have realised is that change is somehow central to the solution. Digging the same wells deeper will not lead to the discovery of new wells. Change, change agents and change directors are needed.
This blog is my contribution to play a small, but hopefully constructive, role in the process of change. Through this blog I will explore relevant and critical issues for investigation and debate. Through this blog I will hopefully generate a think tank of contributions that will lead to influences on policy directions – not only on a national basis but also on a global basis.
I trust that you will enjoy this journey with me.
