African Tourism.

International tourism will support any country that can provide a safe, crime free, African experience.

Tourists want to experience African nature in all its facets. They do not come to Africa to experience the luxuries of London and New York. They come to Africa for an African experience. We do not have to change what we have, but rather preserve it and make it assessable to the international community.

How can African leaders expect first world Nations to provide financial poverty aid and to write off world dept if they continue to spend millions every month on their own luxurious lifestyles.

It is time that leaders realize that narrowing the gap between rich and poor include themselves.

No unity in division

When there is no unity in governance, how can it be expected from the people to unite into one rainbow nation?

When there is strife and verbal war in parliament, people live in fear and uncertainty.

When the Southern point of Africa is in strife, unity in the whole continent is threatened.

The world feels this failure of the emerging African nations to unite, and Africa looses its chance to compete with the power players of the world.
