Life is an interesting adventure, only when facing challenges. Without challenges life becomes so boring and without purpose. The only reason why most Zimbabweans prefer living in the diaspora is a symptom that makes Africa a miserable continent. Life loses its value, in direct proportion to desiring comfort in this world. The Khoisan tribes must have enjoyed life more than most people in our modern times. For the Khoisan tribes the skill of hunting, and killing a duiker for an evening meal, must have been more satisfying. This is when compared with a graduate who proudly wears a graduation cap, but lamenting over the condition of being unemployed in his own country.
When considering those seeking comfort, as highly corrupt, one cannot be far from wrong. At independence, there was a stampede by most of our black people, relocating to the exclusive white suburban areas. Such people also sought to pay high school fees, in exclusive, but very expensive white private schools and colleges. This was considered as giving the best education to their children. The question that lingers is, where are those graduates, from such fantastic private colleges? This country urgently needs them, more than ever before, if that education had value in it.
What those poor blacks did not appreciate, at that time, is that the admired whites were, actually, corrupt too. Especially those who decided to leave Zimbabwe, after independence, to pursue other areas of comfort. South Africa and Australia, became haven enclaves for them. There was a failure, on their part, to accurately deal with the actual prejudice that they held against the black people. That which you cannot confront and handle, in this life, reduces your dignity.
