If you want to know what interpersonal relationship is all about, just come to Africa! It is only in Africa that everybody is his brother’s keeper. This is where a stranger will greet you and chat with you. There is no room for individualistic existence.

The people of Africa live like one big family irrespective of which part of the continent one comes from. A child, in Africa, is taught and catered for in the African society by virtually all the members of the community. He stands the chance of being corrected by everybody.

In Africa, if your neighbours notice that you have not been around for sometime, they walk up to your door, knocking, to know what is wrong with you. Oh Africa! This is why I love you dearly, and I don’t think I can leave a “care-free” life anywhere in the world as am doing in Africa!
