Jean Marie on July 16, 2009 at 8:45 am Thank you John, Life is itself serious, the poorest africans dont know if they live or not: Lack of knowledge on life is very dangerous. In the D R Congo, if one minors find a small stone of gold in river; all teams stop to work, they go back to village, they drink, eat and marry a lot of number of women, after 3 weeks they have nothing and they sell their new cloths for having food to go back to mine and the same song until they die. If you need to develop our black continent, think about mentality change of our leadership. Reply John Hope Bruant on July 16, 2009 at 2:09 pm Thank you very much Jean. You are completely right about what we need for change in Africa, and that is precisely what I am about. You can read some of what I have written on Africa, to understand better my thinking here.
