President Obama deserves praises for the YALI program
BY KUDZAI MUBAIWA
My feeling is that President Obama has done well for us, not so much from a policy or foreign policy perspective—because I don’t know too much about that. But I can speak in as much I am aware regarding young people. I think one of his most phenomenal legacy issues was starting up the YALI. Coming from Zimbabwe, I have seen a whole lot of colleagues who actually deserved it and benefited from it. Some have gone on to do great things, others have gone on to do what they were doing but they have new networks and a new outlook on life. I think that the fact that he actually took time to focus not so much on Africa’s current people but on the future, the youth, I acknowledge him.
