What’s it like to live in Africa?

here’s an interesting view from a Ghanaian living in the Netherlands:

My view is that political independence is meaningless until it is linked with economic independence. I think the best place to grow up in this world is in Africa and the worse place too because of the mixture of governance. There is no stage that is so interesting and indeed makes me happier in my life other than those days I vividly remember in my childhood. Independence from colonial rule is relatively good for Ghana for it has already happened and irreversible but I think my life could have been much better if we were still under colonial rule.
