|Should We Kill Off African Time? by manmustwac(m): 8:43pm On Apr 10, 2008|
How many hours have you spent waiting around for people who are late? How many times have they eventually arrived, be it for an evening out or a business meeting, and instead of apologising, they've laughed it off and said "I thought we were going on African time"?
Africa has a bad reputation for time-keeping. Why is it that the concept of time for Africans differs from that of the western world?
Do you think this relaxed attitude to time is healthier and less stressful? Or is it holding Africa back? Is it part of our makeup to take things easy and not let the clock govern our lives? What are your views?
