Cabinet ministers should be individuals who are nationally the most qualified in their sector of command.

The advisers (ministers) to the president of a country should be chosen from the best equip to influence the ruling of a nation.
Having the most qualified advisers could be an election incentive.
To give examples:

A minister for mining (mineral resources):
 should have the appropriate degrees and experience to run a mining operation. 
He/she should definitely be one who had experience of working conditions below and above the surface.
He/She must have experience to compete on global and national platforms.
He/She should have a good understanding of the neutralization process of mining waste and what impact it has on the environment.
He/She should be able to do an objective environmental assessment and analysis before implementing new projects, and be able to pilot or find alternative solutions to public concerns.   Too many leaders use job creation as the prime reason to push their projects.
He/she needs to be a good speaker and listener. 
He/she needs the ability to evaluate the best course of action for the present, while having an understanding of the future human, financial and environmental impact of his decisions.

He/she needs to realize that Mining is primary an operation that should create prosperity for the country where it is mined.
Proceeds of a mining operation should alleviate poverty of the whole nation and not just a region.

He needs to understand that the raw products of mining are a national asset as well as a global commodity.   We live on one earth, which we all should share.

The minister of health
 should be a qualified professor of medicine and have previous experience of being a chief medical adviser at a hospital or medical institution, either practical or educational.

He/She should have experience of handling the needs of doctors, nurses and auxiliary workers in both private and state run medical facilities.

He/She should have qualifications/experience in psychology, communication, and the medical needs of the majority citizens and those of the poor and have some interest in addressing the medical needs of all citizens.
All cabinet ministers should also have a reasonable understanding of the law, mathematics and be able to do a statistical analysis, or run pilot programs in case of public concerns.

They should be good motivational and nation building speaker who can address and take responsibility for failures.

There should be a bridging course for leaders or company executives to enable them to acquire above skills as well as training in human resource management, communication and psychology.

All leaders should run their sectors so that it creates better human conditions.
We had our share of ministers, who can only rule by blaming someone or something else, take advice from incompetent dreamers, or push their product by playing on the sentiments of the public by promising job creation.

Heal the INNER CHILD of developing countries

There are many African children and adults, who grow/grew up in militant environments. 

Some of them are politicians today. 
Some will be the leaders of tomorrow.  
They have/are militant leaders.
There roll models are/where “Freedom Fighters”.
They regard fighting for the freedom of their countries as their life's destinies.

They dream about having an enemy to kill and to follow in the footsteps of those who fight before them.

Singing war songs and songs about slaying enemies of the past helps them to seal their fate.
Their fate is one of having an enemy to fight.    

In many cases they could strip a gun, before they could recite the ABC.
Many of them never completed their schooling.

Food and personal possessions may be (where) scarce, but guns and ammunition where regarded as prized possessions. 

They would dream about owning the best assault rifles like their  worldly counterparts reamed about owning the latest cars.

When democracy came to Africa  the freedom-fighters were not prepared for peace.  

Democratic peace and possessions offered no challenge. 

The truth-commission satisfied their lust for revenge for a while, 
but they were not programmed for peace.

People became restless.   Their souls urged them to fulfill their destinies, their reason for being.   
 What does a fighter do when the fight is over?
All that life taught them was how to fight the enemy so they started to create divisions within their societies and nations. 
They separated the colors in the rainbow, because a rainbow nation includes no opportunity to  fight. 
 It was easy to make all white people and foreigners their enemy.
 Fighting them is all they knew how to do.   

In order to heal Africa we need to find ways to heal the ‘inner-child’ of the nations and its leaders.

While the inner-child of the developing world remained untreated, the seeds of peace will have to wait generations to grow.    

Only skills development education and positive leadership can heal the leaders of tomorrow.

We need to find a way to reach out to the injured ‘inner core of society’, of the world and teach them that love and forgiveness, not revenge and war lead to freedom.

Freedom is not fighting, it is embracing unity.

Only when we become world citizens can we heal the earth.

When your neighbor has more than you,
it does not make you poorer
Each person gets to enjoy the fruit of his/her labors
You can build your success alongside that of your neighbor,
Don't indulged in jealousy, but use your neighbor as a roll model.
Like attracts like,
You are lucky to have him/her in your environment.

A country in debt follows a road to bondage or slavery.

A country in dept can never be a global financial leader.   Such nations can only have power in their local newspapers, but to their foreign competitors they are incompetent fools.

Borrowed money should only be a band-aid, for a very brief period, until the wound heals.

A wound that is too big to heal within the allocated time, needs surgery.
(Drastic internal strategies)

Financial drain often leaks into the pockets of top wage earners and government leaders who consider themselves financially untouchable kings.

African nations must be careful of taking a financial gift in exchange of favors.   Those favors may be invisible shackles of slavery.

Be free Africa.  Be strong Africa.    
Be governable Africa.

Owe nothing to anyone.  
Beg nothing from anyone.

Fight against theft, corruption, racism and violence.

Let the past be in the past, a lesson learned, and strive towards new lessons of the future,
 ground the vision, of the  rainbow nation, of freedom for all citizens.

People should all be free to create their own success without being robbed of it.

The people of South Africa are not free.
While city dwellers have to live behind bars and security systems, there is no freedom.
While robbers, rapists and murderers rule the country, there is no freedom.
South Africa merely swapped the bondage of Apartheid for the bondage of crime, corruption and violence.
For something to heal there should first be the recognition of the problem.
While we live in a make-believe bubble of peace, we will never experience freedom.

We still need to fight for freedom.
We need to fight crime, corruption and violence, while we envisage the type of future we want.
We need to have a true vision what freedom is and work towards it.
If we cannot put strong boundaries around our freedom-vision where there are equal opportunities and peace for all people, then we cannot create it.

We cannot create something that we cannot envisage.

Freedom must have the same meaning for all people; otherwise, we shatter the combined effort.

South Africa should strive for that rainbow that signals the end of all bondage.

The end of the bondage of fear,
The end of the bondage of poverty and
The end of the bondage of limitation.

We should all be free to create our own success without being robbed of it.
