My father died when I was young and I was imprisoned for ten years before I became president - Jacob Zuma

South African president, Jacob Zuma, who was in Imo State yesterday for the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding, MoU, between Zuma Foundation and Rochas Foundation of Africa said the liberation of Africa would be possible if the younger ones were adequately equipped educationally.

In his words, 'allow me to say few words on why I have a foundation, people may not understand. I am passionate because I want African children to be empowered. My father died when I was young. I do not know him properly and I took a decision that even if I did not go to school, I must be educated'. 

He went on to say, 'I was arrested for political activities and I was imprisoned for ten years. My people told me how the British treated them in prison and that is while I say education is critical in Africa so that we can hang on our own affairs. What I take serious is imbibing the culture of reading. And that is why I am in Imo State to partner with Rochas Foundation of Africa. I want to say this, our Africa continent has been undermined. We must empower ourselves. They must have the tools so that they can develop Africa. I must tell you that this Africa must be different. their own countries, this is the way to go in Africa'.
