In my opinion, are African leaders really serious about improving the welfare of their people? They talk as if they know all the problems yet do very little to solve them. What do they end up using the resources of the countries they lead for? Your guess is as good as mine. Reading this article I got so angry I thought I was going to get a heart attack because one can do very little about the situation. I share in Dr. Awiti's assertion and advice for African leaders and its advisors t to wake up!!!!! I went into Agriculture thinking I was going to make a difference but I am so disillusioned. Hear this:-
According to President Museveni, malnutrition impairs educational achievements, undermines economic productivity and places a huge burden on Uganda's fragile public health system. The African Development Bank (AfDB) recognizes that Agriculture is vital to promoting growth and reducing poverty in Africa. As an African scholar and public intellectual, I am scandalized and my pride is deeply wounded by the unending specter of hunger and malnutrition. It is shameful, beyond measure or pardon, that fifty years with Africans at the helm, little progress has been made to guarantee every African child sufficient and nutritious food. I am sure there is enough blame to go round; the UN system and the multi-billion dollar international aid honchos are not innocent.
