The bases for economic development and prosperity are: stable government , transparency , accountability and competency . These attributes also form the bases on which US businesses can thrive in Africa, according to Obama. African rulers , how transparent , accountable and competent are you? To rule MUST NOT be like a birth right.

On scramble for  Africa’s vast resources , he is simply telling our rulers to ” shine your eyes ” .  In other words , before signing those tempting deals , have you considered the environmental and cultural impact on the future generations, and what the poorest of the poor (not only the bureaucrats and their cronies) are going to benefit from such deals? Are the aspirations and vision of the community clearly enshrined in such deals? Does the community have a transparent , accountable and competent representative within the Stake Holders in the deals? Are Safety Standards and Quality Management Procedures strictly and transparently  followed?  SHINE YOUR EYES.

A little flash in the  pan seems to excite our people so much  that mediocrity is widely accepted as magnificent or excellent in almost everything they certainly deserve better. Scramblers ply on this gullibility . Our sense of decency must not be compromised, prejudiced and predicated upon by hurried  activities of what Scramblers think we want. We must insist and persist on what we need : Constant Electricity , Educational Materials , Rural Empowerment ; otherwise , NO DEAL.  THIS IS OBAMA’S AFRICA.
