Instability, in all its forms, spells out, melancholy, and woe, even career-wise. On the vast list of guidelines that one has to consider as they choose a career, experts add that one also needs to be in a good state of mind. One cannot be in a good state of mind if their surrounding does not exude tranquillity. Political and social instability could be one of the key parameters influencing one’s interests, career choices, and so on. Political instability is defined as any governmental change that does not comply with a set of political standards, such as coups, civil wars, political assassinations, frequent policy changes, and so on. A government’s political positions affects career, job, and investment decisions. Net photo. When a country has significant economic disparity, high youth unemployment, brain drain, rising food prices, lack of access to loans, political volatility, crime, corruption, lack of social safety net protection, expropriation, and human-rights abuse, it is said to be socially unstable. People often revolt through strikes, demonstrations, and other types of civil unrest. While the impact of the two may be obvious, mental health experts assert that often the victims are affected unconsciously. A government’s political positions and views influence not only the country’s economic background, but also career, job, and investment decisions. Governments can help private entities by giving tax breaks, revenue sharing, grants, infrastructure support, no-interest or low-interest financing, free land, tax credits, and other financial resources, Baker Tilly writes. Baker Tilly’s idea is that “By giving support through incentives, governments choose to invest public resources to make private investments feasible and, as a result, earn investment returns in the form of economic impacts,” As a result, it is not only generous but also a strategic move by governments, as well as a boost to enterprises. It is therefore understandable that if the Rwandan government commits to supporting young entrepreneurs by providing capital, grants, and collateral for loans through various governmental and private bodies, as well as cultivating an entrepreneurship culture through educational curricula, more youth will be drawn to business. It’s also logical that when the Rwandan government encourages young people to participate in and take seriously Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) in order to boost youth skill development, many Rwandan youths follow suit. What happens when governments’ orientations are unstable (political instability) or when people are not empowered (social instability)? It is believed that a country’s political and social instability affects its population, which impedes the country’s development in return. These instabilities influence not just what people study and do, but also where they do it from, resulting in “brain drain.” Because of the insecurity, competent and talented professionals leave their countries in search of better opportunities and more stability. Could this be Africa’s ‘unsolved’ problem? Is it because we are engulfed in our chaotic, political, and social instability that we have so few renowned professional people and sustainable development? Could a post-genocide Rwanda teach the rest of Africa a lesson? A lesson of a government that serves its people.
