"Africa has failed not because of external factors,, though they have played a part, but because of weaknesses... . Provided that these faults are acknowledged, their consequences can readily be put right; and provided the mistakes of the past are learnt from, putting Africa right and achieving its potential may well not only be less complicated than we fear, but the results may come much quicker than we realise, and the transformation we all yearn for will take us all pleasantly by surprise." _ Greg Mills
African leaders have developed a tendency of blaming the problems of the past for all their indiscretions. Every year when they manifest for our vote, they promise us (the voters) the glorious things. Yes, the world was not built in one day but it was completed. With the leaders, its promise after promise. On the other hand, the spectators-opposing parties- contribute to the demise of the ruling party.
As an outsider, it become easier for you to point out the wrongs, yet, given the same platform, you would most likely reach the same outcome if not worse.
if our own leaders are busy acting like lunatics then how are we suppose to move forward? busy jerking each other on the media... South African leadership is messed up, being a President is just like any other occupation. what ever happened to the people's government not the joke whom is said to be a president.

it's true what they say. We are all struggling, we just differ in terms of our situations. There comes a time in life where you just feel like giving up is the only option. Well , news flash, you give up on something now , you will always give up because the more you grow, the more problems you have. The least you can do is just not to pity yourself, asking yourself rhetorical questions... live your life the best way possible, give it your best shot , take chances... after all we're but just visitors in this world.
