I dream of an Africa with our own form of governance.
Perhaps one that elections will not be the topmost priority.
And political slogans and ensuring a party retains power, the main agenda.
Even if there are elections, people will vote based on relevant issues and competence.
How I wish discussions will not be based on one’s political affiliation but the truth.
And public institutions will not change their bosses after a new party is elected.
How about if we are able to manage our resources well and not always go begging.
And the youth will be given equal opportunity no matter their background.
Perhaps a national development agenda could be a solution and a sense of nationalism imbibed in every individual.
I dream of that Africa.
