    Expensive housing may be forcing people to cheaper alternatives but such alternatives are futile if jobs are not generated in the new locations. Essential life commodities will grow in these new locations such as food clothing health schools etc but these are not value adding employment generating long term utilities. What is needed to cement the viability of these new locations is a planned movement of value adding enterprises such as manufacturing and agriculture mining and associated value adding enterprises. This can only be aided by Government policy. So where is the Government plan for such decentralization. When leaders are not creative and innovative nothing has long term viability. The biggest negative for our nation is our inapt leadership at government level. They are followers not leaders. They are small ideas managers process focused rather than vision. WE want leaders that will guide our nation to get to the future first and put vested interests in their place to make this happen.
