South Africa on my mind

We have all heard about Africa and its poverty but how many of us are really aware of Africa’s politics and the problems it faces? South Africa is a country with many races and most of its people are black. It has a population of about sixty million and has the most diverse and industrialized economy in Africa but sadly it has seen very little growth. I think that the deeply-embedded socio-economic inequalities in South Africa play a major role […]

The Afghanistan Issue

The Afghanistan Issue Afghanistan has been an unwilling victim of war for decades. I am appalled by the things the Afghanis suffered and what they will have to suffer.

How Rwanda has bounced back from the ethnic cleansing

Today, I'll be discussing how Rwanda bounced back from the ethnic cleansing. Rwanda isn’t a big country and its economy is been mostly based on agriculture. Its population density in one of the highest in all of Africa. 85% of the population is Hutu, while the rest are mostly Tutsi, along with a very minute population of Twa. Even though most of the population is Hutu, the Tutsi dominated the country. Inevitably, the Hutus eventually overthrew the Tutsi monarchy in […]

Africa‘s Developmental Crisis

Whenever we think or say Africa the image of a starved child pasted on a billboard comes to mind or of families living in wooden cabins without rooftops over their heads.

Obviously, the obvious […]
