The fact is this, it is easier to be successful in most countries of the world than Africa. That is why people leave!

To be successful in Africa is crazy hard. And people made it hard. Most have it in their culture to make life hard for others in the name of ‘training’. I heard from a credible source that the average pay of educated people working in a top African city is less than $200. In most cases, the companies can afford to pay more but they just won’t. I know a number of people who earn ridiculous amounts. This is definitely not true of every indigenous organization but very common.
