water Africa: Invest in Water Storage to Secure the Future .

What an excellent article on the need to invest in water in Africa. The biggest obstacle that I see is the political will of the African leadership to see this as a necessary mandate and strive to restrict any demands for kick backs to put water programs in place. The politicians tend to be so corrupt that even if one wants to do the necessary work free of charge for the people, one still has to give bribery to even initiate it. The rich and the powerful have the opportunity to leave drought stricken areas. However, the most vulnerable citizens; the poor; women and children, are usually the victims of government inability to make water a priority.

We as Africans need to look long term at things that help our world and make it a priority. There is an African proverb that states “When the moon is shining the cripple becomes hungry for a walk.” There is still an opportunity to affect the consequences of water shortages if we can start now. Water is so critical to human existence that Chineke made much of the human body is water. On average, the body of an adult human being contains 60% water. Most of the water in the human body is contained inside our cells. In fact, our billions of cells must have water to live. Billions of dead cells mean millions of dead people who need not die!

Water is so important!
