Abstract

My late father was an engineer. In a small way, he helped build Africa. The projects he worked on always served as tangible reminders that we as humanity were making progress towards a better life, towards a greater degree of civilisation for all. Now, whenever I pass one of these monuments, it reminds me of the man he was: to me he was a great man. He always taught me to be a gentleman, to possess a measure of chivalry, to stand tall among men, to tell the truth and to say it like it is. Today, what I realise is that this does get me into trouble from time to time. Nonetheless, I stand convicted, true to my father's values, which are now my own.
