Will the cheetah ever return home? – Africaontheblog post

October 30, 2010


I was in the US last month for a couple of weeks. As I was ‘cruising’ the massive malls and the unfamiliar wide highways, I couldn’t quite help but think of the African in the diaspora. As I drove towards the city of Boston, I remember how this very piece evolved from a single thought […]

Reinventing the Wheel

October 10, 2010


Some of my good friends happen to be Kenyan. Naturally being Zimbabwean I have been observing the events in Kenya economically, politically and otherwise with great interest. I am completely fascinated by this country which was embroiled in massive killings only a few years ago (2007). This resulted in a coalition government which is currently […]

September 10, 2010


I blog here too: – This is my first post: - The Forgotten Children Last week on Tuesday, I received a text message which simply read ‘Tune to BBC2 now’.  A good friend of mine had sent it while I was making dinner. I stopped and immediately switched over to BBC 2. What she wanted me […]

Young Africa Leaders & Obama

August 6, 2010

Africa is the Future

July 11, 2010


Continuing to read my book – Africa Rising. My current mind set (i.e. Africa is the future) is being confirmed steadily. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in Africa and Her progress. Interestingly though, I do put the book down at times and go online to research a bit. I found this interesting link. This […]

World Cup 2010 Thoughts – Emotions Aside

July 10, 2010


I’ve been celebrating, commiserating at times and watching the football games with the rest of the world as the World Cup 2010 wagon rolls ever so slowly towards the finish line. What a trip we’ve had along the way! Madiba was there when the announcement was made on the 15th May 2004 and we all rejoiced. Africa […]
