The problem of African countries is not leaders that stay in power for long but western governments and their formula of capitalism.
African leaders have been painted as corrupt, savage, unstable and communist.
Africa is a land rich with history of foreign intervention and absurdly and vainly scantly filled with information as to the history of Africans but myth and fables as the case is.
Africa stood up against colonialism and espoused the freedom that many black people longed for over the years. From years of fleeing the coastal areas because of Arab slave traders to years of European slave traders, partionist and colonizers.
Africa in arising from the dread of colonialism took on the practice of democracy that the west was preaching all over the word but which was never meant for Africans.
Under the system of democracy winner takes it all is at the pinnacle or cornerstone of this practice. African leaders that have mastered the ways and realm of this system are often times embellished as dictators, corrupt, savagery, unstable and communist by the global world audience that has been glanced over the adorable spirit of the Uk and USA that preaches peace and liberty by day and spits fire at night.
Under this democratic system in the UK the prime minister can run for office over and over again. In the USA, President Roosevelt run for office four time until the Republic once in office had an amendment stipulated in their constitution that the president had to run for two terms.
In Africa like in other third world country the USA and Uk have participated in undermining democratically elected governments and even going further to organize the killing of democratically elected African leaders. Is this democracy really for Africans or it’s a western facade?
So, in this system of democracy the majority can do what they want whether changing laws to favour themselves or deciding to attack a foreign nation that has clearly nothing to do with an unfortunate event in their own as the USA happened to conduct itself under President George Bush Junior; The USA attacked Iraq on allegations that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction but when the weapons were not found the idea that Saddam Hussein was an evil that needed to be removed took the day.
When the spirit of the West is traversing the world in the night, in the day NGOs, Christian organization are speaking long live democracy and the westerner style of things.
John Locke (1632–1704) is among the most influential political philosophers of the modern period. In the Two Treatises of Government, he defended the claim that men are by nature free and equal against claims that God had made all people naturally subject to a monarch.
However, when an opportunity to make capital however gross the adventure may be men are willing to change their minds its no surprise that the philosopher of liberty was a major investor in the English slave trade through the Royal African Company and the Bahama Adventurers company.
So, what is Africa’s biggest problem? Is it bad leadership, poverty, a curse by God to Ham, HIVAIDS, backwardness, failed economies, no strategic plan of growth and development, an inhibited and unknown disease that fails Africans from developing?
All these are what commentators and political analyst would say but the real problem to Africa’s development whether political and economic is the west’s long lived and unfettered claim to dominion over African resources and people.
Think this through, when an envoy from the west visits a sitting African President and tells him that, “if you do not give us…. We shall pay your generals to overthrow you or cause civil unrest in your country and later over throw you or put embargos on your government and still overthrow you.”
Should this African leader relinquish his seat to another who will also be told the same or should he stay in power as he seeks a solution on how to enable his people overcome this force that speaks love in the day and conspires, defiles and kills in the night.
This is the real reason African leaders stay in power for long to try and achieve for their people under impossible circumstances. The unfortunate thing is that we the natives of Africa and others that have taken on being African, we have despised our leaders labelled them as bad even when western leaders have done worse. Called them names despicable to even mention but gladly join and die in armies of the west that attack and harm other countries.
African leaders that have been killed, arrested and embarrassed at the hand of the west.
- Nelson mandela
- Patrice Lumumba
- Kwame Nkrumah
- Muammar Gaddafi
- Robert Mugabe
- Hissene Habre
- Your current leaders
Nelson mandela arrested in 1962 CIA participated in the tip-off that led to his arrest.
Nelson mandela was South African President from 1993-1999 but remained a terrorist on the US watch list until the 2nd of July 2008.
Mr Mandela won the Nobel peace prize in 1993 but even then, to the Americans he was still a terrorist. This is a shame of an award. You can be an African leader, peace lover but to the west you are still a terrorist.
On 2nd July 2008 Nelson Mandela’s name is removed from the US watch list of terrorists.
Senator John Kerry said after the bill was approved on Friday. “Today the United States moved closer at last to removing the great shame of dishonoring this great leader by including him on our Government’s terror watch list,” I am only left with a sure belief that what ever the reason for nelson Mandela’s release, the hidden idea had not been realized for he remained a threat until that day.
From the words of,” Senator John Kerry said after the bill, “Today the United States moved closer at last to removing the great shame of dishonoring this great leader by including him on our Government’s terror watch list.
So, when you see John Kerry at an Election in Kenya know that this is no ordinary Election Observer. His presence is mystified to the public but notable to mention a direct letterhead of American interest.
At the recently concluded Kenyan elections, Former US Secretary of State John Kerry, who led the Carter Center’s observer mission in Kenya, noted that, “Kenya has made a remarkable statement to Africa and the world about its democracy and the character of that democracy. Don’t let anybody besmirch that.”
When the supremacy court in Kenya annulled the elections thereafter, what do you think of the words of John Kerry as election observer and about Mandela.
These are lies that these western agents blatantly put to us that chose to spend more time reading the bible and Quran than observing the man that claims to be the power speak before us.
Former Ghanaian President John Mahama, who led the Commonwealth observer mission, said the East African nation’s voting and counting system appeared “credible, transparent and inclusive” and that Kenya had “the potential to be the most inspiring democracy in Africa.”
When a black man has closed his eyes, but comes to your home as an election observer.
