Another word for freewill is disobedience

Another word for freewill is disobedience. While interviewing a prospective employee, I noticed that the candidate kept refereeing to his former employer as "bad", "poor" and "undemocratic". His previous employer did not give him the chance to do what he wanted. When I asked the candidate what he wanted to do, I immediately knew he would not fit in any organization. He could not take orders from anybody. He wanted to do his "own" thing. In an organization this would be disobedience.

A Brave & Bold New Africa

I had the privilege of interacting with and learning from Old Africa and now I get to be part of a great future. There were many victories and challenges in Old Africa. Old Africa was raw, green and just independent. In Old Africa things changed from white to black, but that was not enough. Old Africa lacked education. People say it was corruption.  I grew up in my Africa. My Africa faced “catch up” challenges. By the time I was an adult my Africa was labeled “third world”. We were labeled the most backward a title not much different from colonialism or slavery. I have always hated this label, but relative to the rest of the technology world – what can I say?

However, I have been privileged to see a brave new Africa. A proud Africa. An educated Africa, a technological Africa and a bold new Africa. Africa has never left my heart. I pray that the new generation would realize that we were not born in Africa, we were called to Africa. This gives me hope as I look ahead and see Africa as it should be ... I am proud of this new generation. Africa is one nation, one people with one destiny in one world.  “ Africa is not a geographic location. Africa is home. Africa lives in the hearts, history and hope of her people.”

God Bless you

Mandela House - Sowet
I travelled a week ago to Johannesburg. Of course, I was thrilled to make pilgrimage to the land of Mandela. Oone of the greatest men the world has ever seen. I was surprised by the depth of the economy and the vastness of the country that was apparent even from our limited stay. We interacted with conference participants who came from as far as six hundred miles away. I met people from Zimbabwe, Zambia and Malawi. In the Malls, I even met people from Tanzania. My travelling team had been to SA before so I was following along a step behind to make sure I did not miss anything from a first time visit. When we were finally done, I felt proud to be who I am. An African who comes from Africa.

Joburg presented us with a contrast in Africa. One that suggested that Africa is two places at the same time. Africa has its rugged beauty its people and vast land, but Africa is also advanced, asphalt and economics. There is a struggle to bring the two together. Perhaps Mandelas struggle is not over. Perhaps that is not Mandelas struggle, but ours. I think we need to bring these two Africas together. When I came back home and had some time alone I had to decide to which Africa I belong and only then can I bring hope to the Africa I belong.  By the way the house you see in the photos is Mandela House. The place the great man lived in SOWETO.
