This book is a narration of the prevailing socioeconomic environment in South Africa. A background is given on how this environment evolved. More than two decades into democracy, the third largest economy in Africa is failing to offer economic independence to its indigenous citizens. It is quite concerning that the economy is creating billionaires by the day whilst the majority of the population is wallowing in poverty. The book discusses how this environment can be changed. A few practical examples are also used to justify assumptions made. This is a must-read book for anyone interested in understanding the socioeconomic environment and interested in influencing a transformation trajectory. The book is written in plain and simple fashion that can be understood by anyone.
This book was published on 11/09/19. It talks about our the unique role each one of us plays in life. Human beings exist to compliment one another. No one can become a better person in isolation. Humanity is an ecosystem. Each person has a role to play to keep the ecosystem in an equilibrium. Our success is dependent on how we offer each other necessary help. Profitable and sustainable businesses are those that solve life's challenges. We are endowed with natural resources from where we are to economically empower each other. Our unique capabilities are sufficient to make the world a comfortable place to live in. Our unique capabilities can be monetized. Our education system is supposed to help us perfect our natural gifts. It is an anomaly to find ourselves working for other people. We must create our own jobs. Employment must be a temporary phase in life. We are created for a purpose and we must never shortchange our reason for existence.
When Dad passed away I was asked to offer a speech at his funeral on behalf of the surviving children. I had been nursing dad for about a month before his passing away. I had been on the road for over two days and two nights from Bloemfontein to Bulawayo for the burial. I was mentally and emotionally drained to summarize a proper speech that would have been a fair representation of I and my young brother's experience with Dad. I gave a very short speech. After the funeral, an auntie asked me whether we had a normal relationship with Dad. She was worried that since Dad was a pastor, maybe at home he remained a pastor - robbing us of an intimate father and sons relationship. This book is an answer to my aunt's inquiry. My physical and emotional state made impossible for me to say everything worth mentioning about Dad. This book is the complete version of what I was supposed to say.
