By Rejoice Ngwenya - Harare, Zimbabwe.
EITHER WE AFRICANS are blind, selfish and greedy or something worse is holding us back.No private radio or television station is allowed to operate in Zimbabwe, while it is almost impossible to register a private newspaper.

Zimbabwe does need help but other African countries dont seem to be doing much about it and keep quiet. It will all have an effect on them as well.
