Dear Africans,
Will there ever be an END to this? Are we condemned to such existence by some mysterious insidious ‘natural force’ to be our own enemies? Or is there a mysterious outside force against the very existence of the AFRICAN? When rational answer eludes us for centuries, one tends to be irrational in search for a hidden cause. When a nation fights for decades to be ‘liberated’ from conceived enemies and then finds itself liquidating itself; or when running away from itself in search of a sanctuary in the country of the ‘enemy’ of yesterday; or when finding itself liquidating itself based on ‘fraternal’(!) enmity simply because of pigmentation; or when constantly fighting for the sake of fighting even if sociological reality is the same and one; even if …if…. If…. there seems to be no end to it…………

In all these bizarre phenomena, what did OAU, and subsequently AU, and, above all, the African Intellectuals of the highest educational caliber in the world did to save Africa from itself? Let us be honest: NOTHING!

And so, international organizations [unconsciously?] will always come to dig the grave a little bit deeper by making the African people perpetually dependent upon others for “protection, education, health and nutrition, as well as water, sanitation and hygiene”.
How low can Africa descend into than that?
