I chose to disagree with the first comment. despite corruption and other things we may mention here, Africa is still in dire need of aid. a lot more dimesions and economic activities by developed world have affected africas development plans. it is high time indeed that truth has to be told. one thing to remember, economic activities of the north and the west have increased vulnerability of africans to global warming and climate change. in turn, africas reliability on rain fed agricuylture has been heavily hit. Africa is not all that an industrilised continent.
