africa By dave AFRICA - What the future entails - GARY SUTTON - At the top of the social hierarchy is a small minority of the population living in luxury followed by a small middle class and a sea of squalor in which the vast majority of Africans are mired Such social imbalance is the cornerstone for the fiscal and monetary crisis that has plagued Africa It is not for a lack of talent ambition or intelligence It is not a lack of resources either Africa has a vast supply agricultural forest mineral and human resources It is because of poverty corruption and the legacy of colonialism that Africa has come to the terrible state in which it is It is in some respects the legacy of a colonial past that Africas economy is in such a poor state The colonial rule robbed Africans of their native value systems and failed to replace those values with anything useful Unfortunately the solution is as complex as the problem however it is a solution the Africans must develop the solutions themselves We have all seen pictures of starving Africans on television and have heard the pleas for help only to be greeted with more pictures of disaster in yet another corner of Africa The rest of the world has seen so much and tried so hard only to see that work well intentioned as it may have been fail in the end In order for Africans to salvage their countries they need to understand exactly what the problems are stripped of local cultural biases and prejudices about the past They must study the problems and set aside their differences to look toward a common future Africans must give up the belief that all their problems lie with the actions of others Political colonialism ended thirty years ago Africa remains poor not because of the heavy hands of colonial governments Africans need to take responsibilities
