 Malaysian Development Model: What Lessons Can Africa Learn

 (I joined the most shitty/disgusting/traumatic/painful/inhumane training to hone my skills in writing & folks there + countries behind them thought I needed a training on how TO FUCK!)

I’s disrespected, picked on, mocked, laughed at, everyone just invented fake stories, did the most inhumane/disgusting/absurd acts to make my time there hell, & most of all FAIL.

Am not the PICKUP lady! (You know the pickup lady)

 

Is it my destiny to be played with all my life & that my whole life is destroyed by MUSLIMS & NON-MUSLIMS?!

WHEN WILL I BE FREE FROM ALL OF THE CRIMINALS WHO DID TO ME WRONG/ILL/ & EVIL?! WHEN?

 Introduction

Africa is a very resourceful continent, very rich in many resources; to the point that the former colonial powers which colonized the continent came back to extract the abundant resources and untapped fountain of resources that is not fully utilized by its own inhibitants”Africans”, masses of individuals who were from the former colonies that colonized Africa had migrated again to resettle in the continent and find job opportunities that their own countries Western couldn’t provide for them, they managed to find jobs in Africa which had failed to do the same thing for its own citizens!

We must not skip and ignore the reality and tragedy that so many African youth are so willing to escape the harsh living conditions in Africa and die in thousands to become prisoners in refugee camps in foreigner countries, who may or may not accept them as refugees, when Africans can’t find jobs in their countries, the former colonizers had found many without facing any hardships,  but all this have not yet convinced the people of Africa to take a step and rediscover, and explore the continent; and hence it was left to be forever described as place of disease, wars , genocides, illiteracy, famine and poverty.

There are so many countries which lack the same abundant resources that are available within Africa, which faced the same colonial background, no much aid from developed world in regards to undertaking serious development projects that can improve the lives of millions in the continent and to make significant contributions that can lead to tangible shifts in the quality of live within the continent.

In the following pages I will take one country that have made a gigantic leap from humble conditions in both (Economy, Education, Health, Infrastructure,etc.) to becoming an example set for many countries that seek to have better and brighter future to its citizens.

I will try to highlight what Malaysia had done differently to become what it has become.
