  4. “While revolutionaries as individuals can be killed can be murdered, you cannot kill ideas.” Thomas Sankara

  6. A man who says “I have learned enough and will learn no further” should be considered as knowing nothing at all.- Haile Selassie

  8. “Africa’s story has been written by others; we need to own our problems and solutions and write our story”.Paul Kagame
