Reggae-Dancehall musician Stonebwoy has voiced his thoughts regarding projects disregarded by new governments when they assume office.
In an interview with Ebro on the New York radio station Hot 97, the multiple award-winning artiste said he is unhappy with the attitude of incoming governments abandoning the projects that the outgoing administration had already started.
He made this assertion in response to a question from the host, Ebro, about some of the African continent's challenges. Many experts, according to Stonebwoy, have reiterated solutions to issues obstructing Africa's development, but there is a gap between theory and practice.
“I see a lot of big leaders and Pan-Africanists speak every day on the theories of how things can be done and the practice is a different situation. What actually bothers me most that I can’t really understand why it’s being done is when a government comes into power they initiate a lot of projects. Start some, get some to the middle, complete some and the next one comes then it turns its back on what it’s supposed to continue.”
The Gidigba hitmaker continued by shedding more light on initiatives that the present administration is neglecting.
“In my country, we have the former president who built a lot of infrastructure like schools and the new airport terminal that we have. He built a lot of hospitals too and you find out that in that political scheme, the new one comes and establishes a lot of good ideas which is the free education but then now the school buildings that were built by the former president are not in use. They are just empty.”
is advocating for improved governance in which the people's needs are given top
priority by those in power.
