Description
Kazadi, the Chief of a Central African village, wonders how he could help his people to dramatically improve their daily life and reconcile timeless African tradition with 21st century Western lifestyle. He comes up with an unexpected solution to be carried out by his most trustworthy counselor and Chief’s ears, Sumpi. Will Kazadi’s boldness find support or will it cost him his position? The purpose of my writings is to deepen the understanding of the challenges that the African continent faces today, and to suggest options to develop new pathways that take into account ancestral traditions, colonial history, the current economic crisis and environmental issues at today’s historical and political crossroads. The outlook for Africa, a continent with such a young and eager population, its soil abounding in natural riches and its reservoir of biological diversity for the whole World vouches for a bright future if only given the chance to develop its very own system that would satisfy the needs and expectations of the peoples of Africa before anyone else’s.
