“We tend to be so lucky in Zambia and Africa because much of the land that we own, most people just inherit it. You don't buy it. And and yet you're sitting on this inherited land and not making it productive.You can’t send your kids to school, you can't have decent housing, you can't actually sustainably feed yourself and yet you're sitting on this resource, So my focus was how do we turn this resource that we sit on, which we don't even value into something that we can actually get jobs out of,”
