We dream of bankable 99 year leases. We dream of owners of land and means of production. We dream of reduced imports .We dream of business incubation and mentorship. We dream of wealth not riches.
We dream of a people with a strategic eye that sees beyond tomorrow. A people that sees low hanging fruits and grabs them with both hands. We dream of Ubuntu in our value systems guided by relevant laws and regulations.
We dream of a youth with a purpose, responsible and accountable culture. We see mentorship and apprenticeship .We dream of a middle class defined and forming majority.
We dream of more gender equality from grassroots as we pursue financial inclusion.

We dream policy consistency. We dream of lack of bureaucracy in our systems. We dream of a leaner and meaner civil work force. We dream of fair and just remuneration. We dream of green energy power generation and more than enough power generation. We dream of a preserved environment.
We dream realistic dreams. We dream that we can see with our minds. We dream of harnessing talent to reach maximum potential. We see optimum use of human talent.

We dream of prosperity of the nation through sheer hard work.
We dream of maximum exploitation of natural resources. We dream of accountability, responsibility, efficient and effective hands on approach by all stakeholders.

Above all we dream of you and you and you making a difference in each other’s lives. We dream of a constitution that is fair to all economic actors and everyone abides by it.
We need to dream otherwise we die a natural death. Dreams are the future and the future is what we are looking for, actually a great future for us and our children and our children’s children.
We dream of a better future of which it is coming ... Why do we dream so much? It is because we BELIEVE IN THE COUNTRY ABOVE ALL WE BELIEVE IN YOU AND YOU AND YOU AND YOU AND WE PRAY YOU BELIEVE IN YOURSELF.
