While Sangu offers some much needed insight on entrepreneurship in Africa, he too like Dambisa Moyo want to implement a one size fits all approach to solving Africa’s problems. Just like Dambisa Moyo, Sangu espouses views that promote a 1% culture where only a few own the means of production and everyone else who works for them barely makes ends meet. This is not surprising since he previously worked at Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and Valiant Capital Partner.


  1. Typical of educated people. Once they get a bit of education they now think they know whats best for everyone. Pure capitalism were only a few own the means of production has proven unsuccessful even in the west. On the other hand, pure socialism is also unsuccessful but perhaps promote a model that incorporates the best of both

  2. O Godwo deliver us from the talented tenth mentality & WE Du Bois would be so proud of this 1% which seeks to establish themselves as ruling class and leaving the masses so they can laud over others. Absolutely pathetic thinking.
