    #EMERGING AFRICA #IbuaAfrica

     
    'Ibua' is a word from the native Swahili language of the Eastern Part of Africa which means 'to Emerge’, which is perhaps the best definition of what is happening in Africa right now. Africa is emerging.
    Africa is normally depicted as a wanting continent, with abundant resources that are overwhelmingly mismanaged, it is seen as a land of corruption, stereotypes and poor governance, worse off WE, Africans see ourselves as second class citizens, like we are children of a Lesser God and this has contributed to much non-development, psychological stagnation and a track record of choosing leaders who.. Well, im sure we have seen or experienced them.
    But i have a great, great feeling that this is soon to be of the past,
    There is a generation that is rising...a generation that is set to change the future of this Continent, a generation that has hopes and dreams of bringing forth ideologies and implementing them in an African Way. Ideologies that will foster and promote the brand Africa, Ideologies that will design the governance systems in a positive way, as is the case with Joseph Gachira, a 25 year old social entrepreneur and changemaker of the year award winner. Joe is passionate about leadership and together with few friends began a 10 week program that aims at inculcating leadership qualities that are needed to counter life’s challenges and help to practically meet societal needs. This is the future of Africa.

    This 'emerging Generation' is bringing forth ideologies of appreciating and using art to bring positive impact in Africa as is one other young man, a poet, 26 year old Chris Mukasa whose motto is to create an Africa that can speak for itself. He organizes a weekly session in Nairobi Kenya that brings together artistic individuals with a similar goal, Rebranding Africa.

    This is the generation that the world needs to see, that the worlds needs to listen to, it is the generation of change, Change that will bring forth an Africa of prosperity, An Africa of self reliance, An Africa of surplus productions
    There is a revolution, the #IbuaAfrica revolution, which you, yes you should join in, lets help Africa emerge.

    God bless you, and God bless Africa.
