I live n Kenya and I am surprised at some of these comments - I would like to show you pictures where I live where people work out of shacks and out side the bigger towns -infrastructure esp is just not there. CArs in KEnya are very expensive adn there are rules ot stop bringing imports in .OLd recks are 5000 dollars to keep poor people off the road. I wanted to use my phone the other day ran out of credit and 20 africans I worked with had phones but no credit -like most! The drivers etc are there to smoke all the money out of those with money and the poor stay poor

The weather is very hot in Africa and people are still going out to work in that hot climate. Africans are very hard working people, men and. women.

rizeking (19 часов назад)
wake up people. focus on the end of the video when he speaks about everyone that works for him in Africa. it shouldn't be that way in our land. they should work for us in Africa.
rizeking (19 часов назад)
you can not remove color when it was color why the original people were oppressed to begin with. So always let's start with facts. because because that will dictate the direction of the topic. we use all the technology that we don't make ourselves. watch out for the next take over of africa. there is a movement my people to get them out of our land and remove ourselves from neo colonialism

Are you sure his white? l hope my eyes are not playing tricks with me, because for queen Elizabeth and british people all they do is to promote tribal wars so that shell will be busy stealing free oil while their self appointed lifeless leader called buhari lies in their hospitals in London for eye and brain damages.

The Truth (10 дней назад)
he is right. Iv seen a lot of very well "developed" systems in Africa in comparison to similar systems in so called developed countries. The real KILLER of Africa is the cancer of Corruption. If they can cure that, I promise, Africa will rise like uv never seen it before.

Africa is ripe for business, but please, Africans, take this opportunities yourselves, don't let foreigners build and sell this things, build them yourselves, sell them yourselves
Mike M (16 дней назад)
Africa doesn't want charity, Africa needs business. Imagine if EU or the US markets were open to African produce. Farmers would take their kids to school and pay tuition fee themselves without EU grants. Oh also you'll be buying groceries at a tenth the price you are buying it at now in Europe.

When I first saw the title of his presentation, I thought he was African but is not. I was really offended by his title. I'm sure he had a lot of good pointers but I tuned out soon as I found out he wasn't African.

Jesus Christ is love you guys come back to Jesus Christ he is Lord And king John 14 (KJV) - ዮሃንስ 6: Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.John 3 (KJV) - ዮሃንስ 15: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. 16: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17: For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18: He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

You need to visit South Africa, maybe you will change your statistics around !! South African non blacks live in absolute fear because of crime! My opinion is that most South African blacks will take a thousand years to grow tails and they still wont be half as smart as donkeys, that's how backward they are !!
