With so many myths about Africa in existence, it is often hard to get a realistic view of a continent that is as complex as it is beautiful in its own right. There are many that have a tendency of reducing the planet’s second-largest continent of 54 countries to a single country. Misconceptions, perceptions and generalisations like these are perpetuated both by the media and pop culture. Donald Trump’s description of Haiti, El Salvador and some parts of Africa as “sh*thole countries” sparked international outrage and is a sad example of this.A lot of times when people think of Africa they perceive it as death, disaster, disease and despair. I wanted to highlight that I as much as all that is may be true there are other parts and sides that you do not get to always see. Poverty in Africa is rarely due to a lack of wealth, but rather due to a failure to distribute wealth evenly and when the government is corrupt you can guess whose needs come first.Truth is no matter where you are in the world people have the same financial worries and securities. With all that said allow me to introduce Zambia in picture form, an English-speaking country which is about tradition, culture, spirit, food, faith and family.
