    Sep 22 2011: The West is still managing our affairs through proxy like World Bank, IMF, equity funds, philanthropic organisations, UN Agencies, NGOs ect. The Western model was/is driven by an insatiable appetite for debt has failed, yet our current African economies are being driven by the same model! Like the Far East, Africa will only rise after it takes down the yoke of these neo colonialist institutions and takes charge of its own destiny. We need to take risks, fail, rise and try again, alone, till we get it right. We have to be courageous and innovative, just as the West was.
