Dear Aimee

Hope you are safe and secure from Covid 19?I dont think whether. Africa is prepared for this pandemic because of poor governance on public finance management and cultural lifestyles.African leaders and officials have been seeking medical attention in abroad and they have been making policies on medical facilities they are not lifestyle is a big problem like my community social distancing is a dream since they see that as a stigma and discrimination against each other and can cause conflicts among families or sub communities.
