@ Lindolee
Just demonstrating your ignorance. Who told you South Africa got everything to offer. Get over that ignorance. Such mentality is the very reason of many South Africans trapped in poverty. Advising a group of 4 ladies from UWC, of which one was Zimbabwean to go and teach English in a new private and american college opened in Calabar Nigeria in 2010, 3 of the ladies who were black South Africans declined the opportunity and uttered the same words you Lindolee have just made. They said, who in his or her right senses will leave South Africa to stay in Nigeria. The Zimbabwean lady took the challenge, travelled to Nigeria, and signed a two year's contract which earned her $4000 per month ( R 40.000). She was further hosted by a host family in Nigeria who were very good to her and furnished her with other benefits. Upon her return to Cape Town, South Africa, she was able to start, buy a car and a small house. This opportunity elevated her standard of living whereas her friends were still languishing in poverty and envied her. The lesson here is that people travel for opportunities. The white people we see distributed around the globe left Europe to grab opportunities. South Africans should not sit and think they are self sufficient.They should go after opportunities else where and upgrade themselves. The wise ones have done so and the foolish ones keep saying who in their right sense will leave South Africa to stay in another African country. Why won't I stay in another country if I am offered a job that pays me better than what the one in South Africa. Please people wake up from slumber.
