Africa is the center of the future, but it remains to be seen what place the African will occupy
Point of view (Minsili Zanga, Founder and Editorial Director of Dzaleu.com)
This point of view is motivated by the recent events in South Africa. Seeing the emotion around this new access to xenophobia (no offense to South African officials, this is what it is), impossible not to say: show a positive Africa remains a a daily challenge, all of which contributes to doubting.
Should this stop us and fall into an equally negative Afro-pessimism? No, and at Dzaleu.com we made our choice: #africanlifestyle
Our initiative through this media is a voice among others that without diluting reality, chose to attract the eye on what grows up. The problem when you think you live in survival is like constantly passing in front of the same landscape. We end up not seeing its beauty anymore. Africa is beautiful, rich, full of promise, the future!
That’s why any big group today absolutely includes it in its strategy. The Chinese, Japanese and others are not mistaken by investing billions on the continent. Facebook is not mistaken with its virtual currency (Libra). In a Western world where we are almost saturated means of payment, where do you think a virtual currency can literally explode? In emerging countries, they recognize half-words, with a continent in mind: Africa. The fact that some of his sons, the majority perhaps, seems not to see its potential, does not change anything. The fact that so many are still mistaken for enemies (the characteristic of a “dominated” being to hit on another) does not change anything.
Africa is the center of the future, but it remains to be seen what place the African will occupy and expect to occupy in the future
Every action, every stone counts, ours is to make a focus, via our contents, on something, a detail, an image, which can bring to see all the potential of which we are carriers as Africans. Do not condemn only xenophobia when it happens elsewhere, far from our respective countries. Let’s condemn it everywhere, with the same force.
Above all, beyond the convictions, let’s act, everyone, already in our respective entities (family, friends, relations, children, etc.) to twist the blow to this tendency to xenophobia and its counterpart: tribalism. It also involves an uncompromising look at our actions already, but also the way we advise / raise / educate the youngest because they will be the adults of tomorrow. ©Minsilizanga.com
