I want to agree with YUFENYUY KEVIN! Appropriately focused Education beginning with the youngest is Key in Africa's development. Unless Africa deals with Basics first, a lot is still at stake. The obsession with unending "want" versus need is one of the driving forces behind Greed and selfishness. The misconception that wealth is power (minus knowledge on how to manage the power)is counter productive. Cultural issues, inter-twined with a stronghold of attitudes is a an uphill task. Africa needs selfless leaders with a passion to see Africa grow, to utilize Africa's numerous diversity of resources for the good of Africa and not for their individual stomachs and households. The perfect leaders for Africa exist in the very soft tender fabric of Africa's society, only if they can be given the opportunity to appropriate education.
