The financial power and the know make of south African companies are so raised that he is difficult for the other companies of the other African countries to compete.

[QUOTE=Dhuks;91216265]Seriously do they have schools in South Africa? Yes we do and they're some of the best in Africa If they taught you that headlines should be self explanatory better change your education system;No they just taught us to be critical and to think logically. So you think it's fine that a story has a headline that's clearly misleading? they are worded to capture your attention. duh, still have to be accurate thoughWhy does everything that pits South Africa against another African country have to acquire a bragging angle? Cos we don't like coming second in anything, that's the mentality of winners , always striving and never happy when placed second. You feeling butthurt that we called you out? /QUOTE]

I truly agree. Mantra resource of South Africa is about to begin uranium exploration in Tanzania with a higher investment-volume than a mass "over 250 Kenyan investors =Total investment: less than $870million" and cheap Kenyan-investments.

In fact, Kenyans are polluting investment opportunities with their mass and cheap investments.

In Tanzania, Kenya is a numerically leading investors. In Tanzania, we have over 250 Kenyan-businessmen with less than $870million "investment volume".

So Kenyans are numerically superior with less-volume of investments. Meanwhile, Tanzania and Chinese firm have a project of not less than $3billion, Tanzania-Brazil $2billion and a Briton firm is about to inject over $17billion.

Kenyans always keep their head high for nearly nothing.

The article simply meant, Kenyan cross border investments grew the most, not that Kenya had the Biggest or Highest Investment in other African countries.....I thought that was clear.....no??

Tanzania is yet to be compared to the likes of Kenya, Nigeria,South Africa e.t.c when it comes to cross-border investments.

That's what I was trying to point out as the thread is about this subject.

who talked about comparisons between Tanzania vs Kenya or Nigeria or South Africa? You asked about Tanzania investments and I gave you a straight up answer..I never said anything about we being the biggest investors in the region!!

Besides, The level of Tanzania investments abroad is limited due to numerous constraints because of the fear of capital flight, put it in simple terms..Tanzanians invest in Tanzania first and other parts later.. I am talking about the growth of Investments in general, not just cross-border shit.

Yes, it's very clear.

Uhuru doesn't want Kenyans to be proud of the fact that it's an impressive performance.

He goes on saying that we always keep our heads high for nothing.

I asked Uhuru and not you. Since the subject of the thread deals with a comparison of cross-border growth in investments , there is nothing wrong with what I said.

Any SSC user can reply to a post here. You don't have to be necessarily be Tanzanian. I can't even verify whether you are one or not.

Anyway, there is nothing wrong with what I said:Tanzania is yet to be compared to the likes of Kenya, Nigeria,South Africa e.t.c when it comes to growth in cross-border investments.

It is (clear) self explanatory, at least to most of us. Some people love bitching for nothing. Positive news about African countries and they still come for the weekly/monthy/bi-annual... dick measuring. It is sad.
