Why Africans are NEVER on time?

April 10, 2007

Well, this is no mystery to anyone. Conduct the following experiment: call one of your African friends, relative etc. for a rendezvous at a specific time. Now go to the agreed rendezvous spot and arrive 5 minutes prior to the agreed time (give him/her a chance, maybe he/she will show up early, yea right). Stats from the Timekeeping Convention Guild (I just made that up 🙂 show that 80% of the time the African dude will be late. Repeat the above experiment 2-3 times and the results will remain the same. Why? An explanation could be that sometime during Creation, we Africans probably missed the training class God was teaching about Punctuality. It is also believed that we didn’t for a long time have any notion of time, that is until football games started being broadcasted live on the telly. Got a better explanation? Do tell…
