Blaklioness said:Africans ARE going to end up with the short end of the stick if they don't start using their own brain power and stop letting all those outsiders in to settle their land and exploit their resources and people. This makes no **** sense...THE richest continent (in every natural resource you can think of) on this planet continues to be the "poorest" in common sense!
Some months ago, The government of Ghana comfirmed that Natural Gas has be found in the northern sector. Weeks later a contract was signed by the government and some whites to go exploit the natural gas...most of the citizens were pissed off. All what the government had to say was that, they had no enough resources to do this, but the president's son was able to obtain a load of $3.5 million to buy a hotel, when pensioners were going hungry.
Work conditions at the Tema oil refinery in Ghana became so bad that the Ghanaian workers staged a demonstration for salary increment, but they were rather all fired. Most of them were paid less than $1000 a month, so they all left for the middles east were they said they would be paid better. The government then brought people from Asia and signed an agreement to pay them $2000 a month. This is what happens when the president has most of his family in the goverment.
