The New Scramble for Africa!!!


The current race for Africa has become like the California gold rush of 1848 with everyone dashing in to get a piece of the action, Robin Saunders, the American financier and managing partner of Clearbrook Capital, told the Mining Indaba on Wednesday.
During the same panel discussion, Invest Africa CEO Robert Hersov told the thousands of mining professionals attending the conference that the current inflow of investment was just the start, as Africa's risk perception was declining and its capacity to reward rising.
"There's a tsunami of money coming," Hersov predicted.
Saunders said nowhere else in the world were investors able to chase yields in the high 20 percent. Sahara Group's Tonye Cole described the present as an exciting time to be African and said that Africans who had left the continent were returning with music, hotels and businesses.
Very few Africans, Cole said, were thinking about being anything other than entrepreneurs.
Rothschild deputy chairperson Paolo Scaroni foresaw oil company exploration flowing into Africa at the expense of the Arctic, which was likely to be abandoned.
With the oil price at $50/bl, oil companies had three investment choices-Africa, Russia and the Middle East. With Russia now a no-go area and the Middle East complex, Africa had become the go-to continent.
Mara Group founder Ashish Thakkar said that investment in Africa was becoming attractive against the background of the level of African governance improving and sub-Saharan Africa was the place where everyone wanted to be.
"It's Africa's turn, added Hersov, who said all 14 of the people he had brought to Africa on a recent tour were now investing in the continent.
The panel heard that Africa was jumping ahead in mobile banking by applying new solutions and the time had never been better for the setting up of a chain of banks across Africa against the background of African banks currently being far more profitable than European banks.
The electrical power gap was huge and needed to be filled for Africa to advance and corporations needed to work with governments on water supply.
In a single generation, Africa had gone from being 30 percent democratic to becoming 60 percent democratic, with Rwanda seen as a better place to do business than Italy.
The world was now talking about Africa and not Brics and there was less talk of bringing western concepts like Silicon Valley to Africa and more talk of taking Africa to Silicon Valley.

I Struck GOLD!!


"I for one believe that if you give people a thorough understanding of what confronts them and the basic causes that produce it, they'll create their own program, and when the people create a program, you get action." 

-Malcolm X
    These are words that I truly believe and live by that keeps me thriving to show people the truth of what is really going on no matter how uncomfortable it may be. With this coming weekend being the 50-year anniversary (2.21.2015) of the assination of El Hajj Malik El Shabazz, commonly known as Malcolm X, I will reflect, as I often do everyday, on what he stood for and how he never strayed from the truth of what he believed.  One of his quotes, like many others, that get ignored is "There could be no Black-White unity unless there is a Black unity". In other words, you can't come together peacefully with one group being independent and the other group being dependent. This is an imbalance that will only continue to perpetuate a master-slave relationship that has been going on for 400+ years. The independent group will feel pressured and responsible for the dependent group and become resentful and worn-out over time. The dependent group will feel insecure and powerless toward the independent group and become hateful and despised toward them if their  progress doesn't come fast enough and if it does not put them on equal footing. All this is even worse when you consider that one group success comes at the blood and the systematic exploitation of the other. That's why, I believe, we must participate in a system and create a habit where our talent and our dollars can be recycled that will benefit us like other groups. When others see that you respect your dollars, then they know you got good sense and have no choice but to respect you. Even MLK in his last days was sounding like Malcolm X.
"We've got to strengthen black institutions. I call upon you to take your money out of the banks downtown and deposit your money in Tri-State Bank. We want a "bank-in" movement"

I am the founder and creator of organization: H.O.O.D. (Holding Our Own Destiny)
My mission is to give people a vision and vehicles to take control of their lives and, as a conseguence, their future. H.O.O.D. which is an acronym for Holding Our Own Destiny, is a play on the slang term "hood" which stereotypically means an empoverish area of town, often in-habited with African-Americans. My goal is to flip-the-script and change the mind-set because I find most conditions are mental. We often have a pattern of behavior that  many times conflict what we desire in life and the only way to change this is to expose our ignorance and to challenge ourselves to eliminate our ignorance. My plan is to educate about the system that is designed to keep you subservient and how we should adjust our ways to get what we deserve.
If You Change Your Mind, You Can Change Your Life
