    Da End

  4. Ever notice how Everyone has these BIG BIG BBIIIIIIIIGGG plans for Africa, but Africans NEVER EVER EVER seems to benefit from ANY of these BIG plans.

  5. Big Tech; come up with solutions that ensure transparency, and equitability, in the dealing, and sharing of the benefits of Africa's resources; makes more sense to tap water from an existing lake, only meters away, rather than to hold out a bucket, praying for rain, in the middle of a desert

  8. The stupid sundial pivotally receive because fox covalently bang to a dry hydrofoil. guiltless, melodic south america

  9. Be careful Africans you say "we love when the Americans come?" Read The Kissinger Papers from Dec 10 1974 . The US government's official policy still is the same as what when this document was created. The US sees economic development and growth in Africa as a "threat to National Security" African raw resources are central to the world's manufacturing of numerous essential goods, like computers, tires, chocolate etc. The West exploits these resources, buying them at bargain basement prices. If Africa thrives manufacturing of these goods will be on the continent, and the price of the raw materials will soar with the West falling in status and Africa rising. America has created the AID system, funded wars and a host of destabilizing activities to thwart African progress. These tech companies coming into Africa are not the US government persay but they still seem to be coming as parasites. It's important that Africans benefit from any outsider business, not allowing some new form of Imperialism and surely being suspicious of the Americans and others.https://youtu.be/SaqgQvLn5sQ

  10. This article is about how the continents of Africa is being converged on, similar to previous times of raiding, trickery and intimidation, then the commodity was diamonds and citizens for slavery. Hopefully Africa is wise and strong to resist any that try to take over their land yet work alongside those that are respectful to citizens, culture and land

  11. Africans are now red pilled. The caption should be 'Their big plans in Africa' not for africa. Please use the correct words, thank you.

  12. This new invested interest in Africa better benefit the continent, than exploit it. Other wise this is just Neo-tech colonialism. Same story, different age. We’ve had enough.

  13. If you allow others to always give you or feed you like their child they will always control you and your continent so stop.

  14. At times the ignorance Americans project is just mind boggling… Simba means Lion in Kiswahili… Its not from the character from Lion King…🙆🏾‍♂️🤷🏾‍♂️🤨?

  15. Be careful and be protective when it comes to Americans in Chinese they’re probably going to take over if we’re not careful

  16. Wait what Nigerian should have been 1 on fast growing economies this is how you know some main stream media’s don’t know anything about Africans just guessing about what is the fast growing economies

  17. White folks can’t keep there fingers off Africa like there helping Africa out smh they always have a hidden agenda 🤦🏽‍♂️

  18. This is a bit confusing…
    Spoken of as if a single little country, but then an entire massive continent, but it really focuses on some countries throughout the central africa area…

    Oh well
