A SICK NATION & How To Heal It by Festo Kambarangwe

By Festo Kambarangwe

"A ailing state and the way to Heal It” has been written together with your aspirations, your child’s goals and the nation’s clients in brain. For a reader who on eyeing the name of the ebook exclaimed announcing: “Ridiculous! this can be a ridiculous title," this is my solution: it isn't. international locations particularly get ill! good‚ what's wellbeing and fitness? and what's a state? there's no this kind of factor as a kingdom. we're quite a collection of person males and women—in our households. reflect on a kingdom with enviable average assets: gold‚ diamond‚ natural world and bursting wealthy bowels of oil and fuel dozing less than the ft of its formative years and leadership—the formative years and leadership—who detest study rooms‚ professions and undefined; of their position who prefer fast repair‚ medications‚ black-market‚ environment-endangering actions and “ambiance”!

Who then, is in charge with the overall healthiness of this kind of kingdom? Are we unconcerned in regards to the destiny waiting for any such kingdom? did not the hot Ebola pandemic‚ severe impoverishment, lack of confidence, and as a result terrorism and mass emigration to the ecu aid to place that query into perspective?

Can a country cut loose from fast repair‚ and responsibly take cost of her affairs once more? How can we handle fading loyalty to the relations and country, harmony and concord among mankind whilst sectarian sentiments‚ indolence and corruption choke the country; whilst millions of her early life drown within the Mediterranean fleeing trying to succeed in Lampedusa or Malta? the manager job of a country yearning to growth‚ is to discover and strengthen its typical assets, that's very unlikely with no first constructing‚ convinced‚ its Human source, i.e. work-skills; yet certainly to deal with the nature of its formative years and particularly the frame of mind of its management and policy-makers is necessary if we need to fix a nation's ethos and beliefs earlier than we will be able to really reflect on development.

Under the present conditions‚ the time or set of assets one spends in studying useless matters‚ is a waste of invaluable assets down the drain. to show our backs upon this problem and in its place to proceed burying our heads within the sand fearing to stand the evidence is madness; to replace a goldmine for a “morsel of bread” is insanity and thereof‚ the time period "development" turns into a vocabulary to the long run generations. To emerge out of endless infancy as a kingdom, to achieve we've got an empire to upward push out of slavery are the demanding situations and priorities we needs to face—the center quarter our curriculum should still tackle if we must always anticipate as a society to supply people who find themselves worthy to themselves, their households, their employers and the state; people who find themselves creative and appropriate to the demanding situations of our time, our goals, and our hopes for freedom, dignity and prosperity. lower than that's to heap disgrace on a humans whose susceptible shoulders are already over-burdened via severe disgrace—which is the least the folks anticipate from their leaders. a real chief appreciates already that the time now—or, NEVER!

And this isn't simply approximately Africa! Tom Sharpe (in classic Stuff) used to be correct while he wrote hence: "It is a sensible proven fact that the lower than constructed countries of the area have a lot to give a contribution on social‚ cultural and non secular foundation to fashionable thinking!"
