    East Africa will soon become energy secure. And here we are talking about the energy mix-both fossil and renewable energy sources. This means that power is available, reliable and affordable. Coupled with a vibrant manufacturing sector, a well educated population and skilled manpower, East Africa will soon become Africa’s manufacturing hub.

    Actually, this is a wrong type of mentality, one that needs grinding to the soil. Are you saying this because you are individually aware that you and your ****ing outposts of pot-bellied crew have purposely ****ed up and frustrated the bloody-african system-of-governance. I have heard of recent radio podcast in international media, where African citizens with morbid-symbiotism and moribund-impetance, conferring scathing verbal accusations towards Chinese citizenship in Africa. Africans fail to blame their elected governments and let the sorcerer consulting politicians walk scot-free. Unlike the western countries during colonization who came, tortured, confiscated land, committed genocides, and have walked scot-free, in the past without bringing any tangible benefits and have come back shamelessly, heads high, without conviction of any wrong doing. The Chinese have come not long than a decade ago, and their presence is heavily conspicuous with massive infrastructure development projects, setting up industries, which the white man did not do during his presence in the past generation

    This mentality is akin to colonial hangover, which means you are sleeping on one bed with your paymasters and they are secretly whispering lies to your ears, that Africa can't advance and/or is a non-stater. You need to change your attitude and not symbiotically let your conscience blend with potentially destructive/misleading whispers. Africa should actually adopt the Chinese model of development. The one that is slowly advancing from state-sponsored-developments to private-capital-sponsored-developments. if there countries in Africa that have managed to be manufacturing and economic hubs, why not East Africa?

    I do not wish to be dragged into Hitlers, intellectual apathy. I hope he shall be around in the next 20 years to see what we are saying to day. That is called foresight.
