Yes this is talent. But how is Mother Africa helping these talented engineers, what are they doing to help these children, l mean the African continent. We're wasting their future. Blacks we can also do it and do it better through these talented future leaders
From Peter Duku Owusu:
This kind of talents were awarded marks in those days in school popularly known as craft...... Until Mr Kumah had his two children and their teacher started collecting eggs, yams, soap, etc in place of talents.
Nii Otto Nelson commented:
African is blessed with talents but white man education is killing all of it with chew and pour

Africans are talented but our education system is the issue... this boy may end up doing teaching or nursing instead of mechanical engineering

Briefly News earlier reported that a brilliant Ghanaian student known as Essilfie Abraham was the first African to build an excavator that uses water as a power source.
In the video sighted by Briefly News on a YouTube channel called High Schools Africa, Essilfie, a student of Takoradi Technical Institute, revealed that he used cardboard, rubber tubes and water for his excavator.
He shared that there were no wires, batteries, sensors, or cables involved in the manufacturing process.
