I have always wondered why Africa remains the richest continent with the poorest people. We probably have various answers but a lot of the responses might be around leadership, institutions, infrastructure, and corruption. These responses might soon become irrelevant considering the current growth of various countries and the peaceful gestures from South Sudan to Ethiopia and Eritrea. I wonder what young people in this forum think. How does collaboration play into this issue? How does our ego as emerging leaders play into it?
