@estorpai Calm down man. The whole purpose of this video is to find a more efficacious approach to African development.

Besides, even if these people were trying to exploit Africa, that doesn’t rule out the possibility that Africa is a great place. One can exploit places that they believe are great.

But really, did you watch the video? The intent of this forum is to help, not hurt. Relax and breathe.
