The people do not understand what the benefits of taxation to their lives. Will the people accept personal austerity measures in order to finance public goods? They will not when they do not understand it, but this is what SSA needs

I think we need to mobilize local resources and invest in self-help groups.

Before 1850s, Africans did not have money, but they did not feel poor and marginalized. The introduction of money came with complicated changes in what being an African meant. The integration of capitalism throws the entire Africa into a spin, because it has to kill the identity and philosophy of being African first ... the generational pattern that we see. Ubuntu or a social welfare system is closest to who Africans are.

We need individuals to drive the myriads of issues. Identified shareholders should be actively involved.

It is a systemic trap

Also, our approach to offering solution for the problems here and now is the reason we are not making progress. It is a short sighted temporal model. We need to be able to forecast the African challenges and work on mitigating them now, we have to counter the generational degeneration of African sustainable progress
