Commentary, 26 mar. 2017
Now, we are up to something worthy of an Organization. The 54-year old African Union seems to tighten its belt and do something for the benefit of Africa. In short, the Honourable Representative of the African Union would be asking the Leader of South Sudan, in the equivalence of a layman’s language, >>> “Hey! what is going on down here!!!” The ticklish answer that the Diplomat would obviously get, again in layman’s language: “Nothing new, just what everybody is doing and has been doing – no more, no less”. Let us patiently wait and see how the Honourable Diplomat would handle it and report back to the African Union — perhaps, just for documentation.

That reminds me of a humour told on TV: Once upon a time, a long time ago, an immigrant from South America was determined to MAKE IT in the Good Old USA. He was so determined, he told his America Boss, that he was going to be a Millionaire by saving ONE DOLLAR a day! The Boss answered: “But Jose, that is two thousand seven hundred and thirty-nine YEARS. Ohhh! exclaimed Jose, but adding: “it is alright, I will be patient”.

In a case like this, there is an African proverb. It would have been an elegant answer [I think] by the American Boss to our dear friend Jose: “if you don’t die; you have full health”. (1) Africa is full of wisdom but never translated into amelioration of its own Life on Planet Earth. WE CAN’T HELP IT – it just seems.
(1) Translation of proverbs was never adequate to bring the inherent flavour of Society’s wisdom.
