Quotes

At the opening ceremony on 8 September, Kaberuka further said: "For the Ivorians, the return of the African Development Bank in Abidjan is also a sign of pride and of economic and financial opportunities through growth of consumption, the creation of jobs and the development of the tourism sector.”"
One of his tracks that deal with these themes is 'Ma revolution', which stresses the need for a revolution for a better Africa. "The change I want to see is more democracy for the people, to give the power to the majority, so the youth" , Awadi says in this week's episode of My Song
Lina: "Personally I advocate for spanking, I usually do it myself. It’s a way of ensuring that [my son] knows good and bad.  Every time I was about to do something wrong I would remember the pain and I’ll be like: okay, just stick to the rules."
..."We're in the middle of a tornado," he said. "It is destructive while it lasts, but it will blow past, and development will resume."
