Afripot - Africa's Melting Pot!

Afripot - Africa's Melting Pot!

By Juliet Maruru

It is interesting how fast communications paths have evolved. From mail that took a few months to arrive at its destination, to express mail that was expected to arrive in 3 to 7 days, and then email, instant messages, facebook, twitter... The modern professional needs to keep learning all the time just to keep up with the fast changes.

Africans living and working at home, or living/studying and working abroad, all of us are very much interested in seeing our country not just developing economically and financially, but also protected from greedy and corrupt individuals who would seek to deplete all the resources Africa has available.

The Swahili tribe has a saying,  "Kidole kimoja hakiuwi chawa." One finger cannot kill lice. To be in a position to understand the Africa we live in, her challenges, and the possible ways to make her better, we need to do more than observe. Africans need to get together in dialogue, information and enlightenment in order to ever be able to devise processes for better democracy, stronger economies and even stronger societies. is the answer to the question. As Africa`s Melting Pot, this new web portal seeks to bring together the North, South, East and West of Africa, in a conglomeration of information, discussion and creative intercourse that aims at opening the doors to the further development of our beloved Africa.

As well as offering you news that affects Africa, we also offer forums and networking applications that can make it possible for you to connect with your friends as well as with new contacts from all over Africa.

Are you a writer, at home or in the diaspora; we are looking for unique articles in the following categories: Politics&Policies, Lifestyle&Culture, Money&Finance. Please visit the website to see for yourself how you can be a part of this great venture.
