What curses Africa? It resources or peoples

Poverty, Hunger, Conflicts and Wars including HIV/AIDS are the things people of the World know about Africa. In recent years they know us because of football as the world cup would be hosted in the country of Nelson Mandela.

Why do we say the country of Nelson Mandela? If all the problems above keeping taking a toil on African peoples it is as a result of grave corruption and bad governance we notice in this rich continent. Our resources be them natural or human sometimes are referred to as curses not because they are actually such but because people say they are the sources of the strife and misery.

This is not true. The real curses in Africa are its people, not its resources. Because as a corrupt people, there is no way we can turn on the button of general interest against individual interest. It is also not true to say it is the African people who are the curses, but more true is the fact that it is just some few individuals in our countries within this continent who are actually the problem and curse...because of their attitudes and actions favouring corruption and promoting bad governance...

African youths should cease to be considered as leaders of tomorrow but we have to be leaders now...

Dear GYAC, I'm glad to be part of this global youth network. Its my expectation that this forum established through GYAC will put a long term strategic direction against corruption in African countries and worldwide in particular. For the case of African countries corruption seems to have the same root causes, thus a collective effort towards its prevention should be put in place in critical, analytical and constractive ways for the sustainable development.

Dear GYAC I believe we young people in Africa particularly and the world in general should hold the mantle of leadership in the fights against corruption. If only we are to eradicate corruption, then we have a vital role to play in making Africa a corrupt free society.

I am sorry I have been out of Uganda- in Ethiopia. I couldn't get time to respond to you because I has been having very very busy weeks. I think the draft looked fine. I hope you could have moved to the next stage.
Let me know how you are going. Very sorry indeed.
