The African continent is endowed with natural resources, the backbone to its people’s livelihood and national development, but continues to suffer a multitude of problems associated with poverty and environment degradation, and impacts of climate change. ‘The solution to Africa’s problems lies with its people’ has been ecohed by politicians. Africa requires an atomistic approach to critically understand the issues, while building a credible knowledge base. Knowledge is ‘power’ as often stated, however knowledge without action remains a source of ‘untapped energy’(https://rhapsodystrategies.com).
