Today is Africa Day.
But what does the celebration mean overall?
As a continent, countries will be reflecting on opportunities as well as celebrating the successes, however small. Despite the challenges, which are very real - Africa Day creates a window to leverage the need for collective, home-grown solutions. For these to come from the continent itself, not to be parachuted in, so to speak.
This year, Africa Day 2019 also marks the inauguration of South African President Cyril Ramaphosa, as our 6th democratically elected president.
