We have a long way to go.

China is a funny country. It is a Superpower yet in Rural China poverty levels are just like those of Subsahara Africa.

China iko class ya USA na bado iko class ya Kenya in some remote regions

Eastern Europe iko category gani?

What about Arab Africa?

They are here:
Drive to Maturity: This stage takes place over a long period of time, as standards of living rise, the use of technology increases, and the national economy grows and diversifies.

Their economies are based on Mineral wealth (Oil) and that is a very fragile standpoint. Look at Venezuela today

USA is a funny country. It is a Superpower yet all over the US poverty levels are just like those of Subsahara Africa.

US iko class ya China na bado iko class ya Kenya

Fixed

There is poverty in the US but sio ile type ya Africa ya jiggers. At least their poor live in The Projects.

Umewahi enda US, sijawahi enda China?

only took china 40 years to reach the last stage

Bonobo will tell you Kenya is still a young country.

@Ndindu is losing faith in Africonsciousness , inject him with a few videos from Dr Umar Kwesi Jackson or something.

He is starting to slide back into the inferiority complex phase. He is forgetting that they wuz kangz n shiet.
