The Problem with us Africans

The problem with us Africans, even the most educated amongst us, spend centuries discussing problems not solutions.

One is viewed brilliant by their capacity to identify misdeeds, problems, misgivings, mischief, and articulate criticisms in the most subtle way.

We are labelled sycophants when we support solutions. In a desperate attempt to appease others, we listen to others more than we do to ourselves.

Caveat: While positive criticism is okay, time looses the intended commodification that it should have.

We are delighted about returns without due examination of the rate of returns. We have sacrificed ourselves to 'politicking busybodies' since man is a social and political animal. I choose to be asocial and apolitical not the converse.
