Let us be honest. Would it really make any difference to the ordinary down trodden African whether we have Mr. M or Mr. B or Mr X, Y, Z. ?

I thank for proving us with a space to express our opinion and release our internal pressure. Even then, not many African Readers [in fact NONE] really care to express their opinions about their Africa. One cannot help concluding that they simply gave up on Africa. I wouldn’t pass judgement condemning them.

We Africans [literate and illiterate] are conditioned to live under colonial masters for so long that any other master of indigenous product wouldn’t make any difference. We are hypnotized to OBEY!!! All the charade of liberty, democracy, freedom of expression, justice, equality, independence, constitution ….are, as the slang goes, ‘for the birds’ — NOT for the African Race. The proof of that assertion is in the present solid REALITY. HAVE A NICE SLAVERY. THE END
