    potentially a game changer Some hype suggests the country will be awash with 2 billion of cash a year in oil revenues Powerful connected people in Kampala talk about the staggering changes that are about to come to Uganda how the Ugandans don t realize the implications of the windfall that sits beneath their land There is a sense from some that the good times are about to start rolling But are they The continent is littered with examples of how the riches beneath Africa s soil have done little to uplift its people One only need look to the Congo or Nigeria two massive treasure troves of natural resources that have been squandered by greed and bad leadership How does Uganda avoid that so called oil curse The responsibility lies with President Yoweri Museveni a man who has been in power since 1986 The decisions he is taking right now will define this East African country and its neighbors for the rest of this century It s important to not get bamboozled by the potential for development and upliftment of ordinary Ugandans because many believe that is not President Museveni s first priority To ensure his political future observers suggest Museveni has to control access to the oil wealth which is why no oil minister or oil ministry has been formed yet in Uganda That sector will according to people familiar with the situation stay in the presidency Secondly Museveni has to manage the expectations of Uganda s powerful kingdoms that believe more power should be given to traditional leaders There are also tribal pressures about where the majority of the oil wealth should be spent in the local areas where the oil is being drilled or in the urban areas where Museveni s ruling party is based Thirdly

    have been pressuring the football governing body FIFA to move the tournament someplace safer FIFA would often hint at a Plan B location such as safe Australia if South Africa became too dangerous or unpleasant to host the World Cup However now that the Olympic Games are to take place in a year s time in London some Africans are asking why more people aren t debating whether England can pull off the world s oldest sports tournament After all they say the streets are burning The mobs are in control The politicians are on the beach Call in the army Is there a Plan B for the Olympics some ask jokingly How about South Africa Africans are generally ultra sensitive to comparisons between themselves and Westerners particularly old colonial bosses This time around the debate is less rooted in reality no one really suggests that London is too dangerous to host the Olympics but in the perceptions that many Africans believe still exist If that was happening in Africa they mumble as they watch the TV That said there is also a reverse smugness about the level of rioting seen in England and the British police s inability to challenge it In some cases rioters are dismissed as just a bunch of gormless hoodies on the rampage One South African newspaper headline read London riots are tame by SA s protest standards In many ways the UK riots while shocking to many are relatively meek compared to the violent protests experienced in South Africa for decades As a reporter I have lost track of the number of times we have watched groups of angry South Africans march protest and then trash the streets Just last year I filmed as police fired rubber bullets and water canons at violently protesting

    in the moment or find their passion What life lessons can for example an immigrant Zimbabwean living in Johannesburg learn from a salesman in Idaho Well a lot apparently The common denominator in much self help literature is the underlying need to triumph over adversity or to improve oneself The universality of that instinct translates across cultural or geographic differences Personally I like to just get on with things Professionally as a journalist I am always open to hearing stories about how people change their lives or make a difference I avoid the self help books but over the years I have interviewed business leaders self help gurus management experts and many others who offer their solutions to dealing with life money and business For me the simplest arguments make the most sense There is a whole industry and tone of language devoted to the self improvement business but once all the waffle is taken away it s the obvious advice that is the most valuable Take for example the recently re released book The Surfer s Code written by South African surf legend Shaun Tomson I interviewed him recently and his lessons or codes made sense even though I am a useless surfer and average swimmer Some of his offerings include I will always paddle back out and There will always be another wave These will be familiar to many parents who constantly remind their children to keep trying harder and never give up The old adage that one should pick one s fights is reworked as I will never fight a rip tide Sensible stuff I will watch out for other surfers has shades of good neighborliness and the 10 Commandments It is a gentle book about dealing with tragedies and challenges Like all self help books there

    passengers waiting on the pavement an indication of where that taxi is going There are no taxi ranks along well worn routes instead the taxis use a process of stop drop drive stop drop drive to deliver commuters to their destinations It is chaotic organic and haphazard but it s an industry that is an example of grassroots entrepreneurialism Here in South Africa the taxi industry is a multi million dollar business that is lauded as an entirely black owned collective That said there is criticism that the wealth is not as broadly shared as some would claim because Zulus and family dynasties mostly dominate the industry owned taxi fleets By its very nature the taxi is a collective community experience Catching a ride from the Bree Street taxi rank in central Johannesburg to Cresta Centre in Randburg costs just 8 rand which is just over a dollar It is a cramped and slightly wild ride as the driver straddles lanes pulls over to drop off passengers at a moment s notice and hoots hysterically Inside squashed next to strangers dodging traffic in a beaten old vehicle this is the daily grind of life in Africa Cars are too expensive and there is a barely functioning public transport system so most people rely on the taxi industry to get them from A to B The government would like to regulate the drivers and bosses more so as to bring the industry into the mainstream of the formal economy However the bosses and drivers I ve spoken to say they prefer to operate on the fringes priding themselves on self regulation a complicated system of ownership associations and codes Often they play fast and loose with traffic rules but the taxi bosses say they pay their taxes and support an industry
