A great future awaits Africa. Internationally, Africa has been acknowledged as the continent with infinite resources. Now we have the right technology to propel us even further. However, before I awaken your true pride for Africa, I should first acknowledge a country that’s making all of us proud. And by that, am not referring to any other country but the south-most country in Africa, South Africa.
