   schema:description ""Animal Farm" Prophecy Fulfilled in Africa: A Call to a Values and Systems Revolution discusses why deep levels of poverty and suffering persist in Africa despite all the successive regime changes over the last half century. It discusses why more people are poorer now than they were in the colonial era. The author argues that this is so because most of the leadership change efforts on the continent focus on replacing individuals rather than changing or overhauling the negative systems and the values inherent in the systems that the individual leaders inherit, create or perpetuate. The problems persist because they are systemic rather than personal in nature. Deep and lasting change that could result in lifting millions of people out of poverty will only occur when the systems, rather than only the individuals, are changed or replaced. The author challenges ordinary citizens, especially the youth, to rise up against 'animal farm systems' in order to create the tomorrow to which they aspire and deserve."@en ;
