  • This is just another version of the well worn story about a historically marginalized group seeing new comers (seeming to) easily obtain the opportunities they've been historically denied. Traveled to Joburg back in '98 and it was strange to see a TV talk show about black Americans taking jobs for black S. Africans.

  • To improve the economy, you need to end the violence. But to end the violence, you need to improve the economy. Ramaphosa has one of the toughest gigs in the world... which is saying something

    Tough challenge for South Africa. And 'social' media amplifying it through fake news.

    It isn't just Africa; as the article puts it, this applies to many countries elsewhere,

    "Tally it up: economic angst, migrants, violence against foreigners, fake news that distorts public perception, protests that take on a life of their own, economic pressure, and rising tension among governments anxious to appease public demand for action."

    How can governments handle these situations When others are even actively participating in creating and spacing fake news?

  • Yes, the problems should be solved by the nations of Africa. Most of those nation's have warring tribes that want the power to control the other. Seems like an evolutionary process. The west now wants to step away from the mess it caused and continues to make things worse through altruism. These nations

    Yes, the problems should be solved by the nations of Africa. Most of those nation's have warring tribes that want the power to control the other. Seems like an evolutionary process. The west now wants to step away from the mess it caused and continues to make things worse through altruism. These nations have learned well from their great white fathers. From pharma testing to dumping infant formula on these nations. The continent is rich in resources the west wants. And now the Chinese. Population is exploding and will go to a couple of billion. We know the problems and they crush the spirit of the people. It is a little by little solution. Our involvement is to encourage small business not welfare shops. In our talks with Ghana agriculture we encouraged them to change cannabis/hemp laws that Western pharma, and petro-chem industries imposed on them. This we see will enable them to literally grow their way out of many of the problems.

  • There might be a way to resolve this.

  • African problems can only be solved by African. As the level of education is raised the politicians will be facing demands for change. The only thing the west can do is to enable African educators and prevent western companies from engaging in bribery.
