Wow i have been waiting to hear this news for so long,last tym i argued with one of the lectures @ unisa about poverty in third world countries(Africa & South american countries) that why we always focusing on statistic of people with hiv/aids,poverty, migration,sustainable development only in africa not the south/west countries?

now there is poverty in west/south countries, so called first world countries(world bank, IMF) where we borrow money from and pay them back almost 542 million rand per day jst imagine.

Yeah poverty has arrived and is hitting everywhere, people should go back to farm areas to farm and stop loitering the streets in the cities waiting for cameras and media to report poverty! Let us go back to our roots , relate to nature and fight poverty.
Time waits for no man, am afraid we are all going to die if we dont do something about this time is now.

the fake American dream, you gotta be awake to realise that it is just a dream, same thing in this country when African foreigners see how Joburg is potrayed on TV they have the same perception that we SA have about America. The government might not be same as here, but it is the same system. Capitalist is the name of the game. The music videos can really convince you that life there is like Paradise.
