The But In Africa Must End Today For A Greater And Better Tomorrow

By Malcolm Omirhobo

LAGOS MAY 26TH (NEWSRANGERS)-As an African, a Pan Africanist  for that matter , celebrating Africa’s liberation  day  with my fellow African brothers and sisters  both here at home  in Africa and in  Diaspora  together with our well wishers all over the World, sitting in my small corner and in my quite and sober time I begin to wonder where  did   we  go wrong as a people?

How did  Africa allow herself to be overtaken by  others and gapped  so that Africa now finds herself  in a  tight  corner and sorry state .As I  pondered further , I ask myself why the so many buts about Africa ?

 Africa , the father of all  human race  but the least rated .

Africa  , the strongest race  amongst all  mankind but the weakest and most vulnerable amongst them .

Africa epitome  Light , Beauty ,  Goodness, Kindness , civility ,  Godliness but depict as  darkness , ugly,  bad , evil , savage and as the    devil himself .

Africa,   hospitable and  welcoming but  not welcome in other lands .

Africa,  very generous and willing to share her God’s given natural resources with others but gets  little or nothing in return. 

Africa who gives out her daughters and women to others for marriage or for pleasure but without reciprocation from others . 

Africa , upon whose back ,  sweat and blood the wealth and prosperity of other  nations were built  but  without pay or reward  .

Africa , whose   people were sold as Slaves for  centuries   to all parts  of the world but without any appreciation, recompensation   or reparation .

Africa ,  victims of genocide   by  others  who killed , slaughtered and gruesomely  murdered them but no justice for them .

Africa who sell her   vast land to the  Chinese  for peanuts but cannot  buy a one room.apartment in China .

Africa who first explored and navigated the world but are the ones now  being discovered  by others.

Africa the craddle  of civilization but crave for the civilization of others .

Africa who once conquered and ruled over others but is now the one that has been colonised and victims of neocolonialism  and imperialism.

Africa , the land of proud Kings , Queens , Prince and Princess  with integrity and dignity but now the land  of  dehumanised , humiliated.  debased and broken people  

Africa the owner of the first university in the world but  have lost the  lead.

Africa the fountain and Mecca  of knowledge but now deserted and  lacks knowledge .

Africa the back bone of science and technology  but abandoned  them  for  those  of  others .

Africa the richest  in cultural heritage  , history , traditions and religion  but have  dumped  them for those of others .

Africa the rich land   flowing with milk and honey  but the homeland of  squalor and poverty .

Africa , the land  blessed with fertile hand that can feed the whole world but now a land   ravaged by famine, draught   and hunger .

Africa with the  greatest comparative trade advantage but fails to take advantage of it .

Africa the home of plenty but lacks plenty .

Africa   with so much wealth to loan and aid others but is the one that is being loaned and  aided .

Africa once the home of peace , love and tranquility but now the hot bed of war , hatred, jealousy and    destabilization.

Africa the land  with the best climate  , weather  and vegetation  but fail to take advantage of it . 

Africa  the land free of natural disasters but full of human disaster and catastrophe.

Africa the land  blessed  with  unimaginable natural resource  but   canmot   explore or tap them and would rather allow others do it for them and return the finished products  to her at  extranomical prices . 

 Africa very rich but with leaders by far richer than her  people.  

Africa will bank her money in foreign land  and in foreign currency but refuse to bank in  her own land  .

My African brothers and sisters I ask how long shall we  continue to be at the receiving end ?

 How long shall we  be pitied by others for  no reason.or cause 

How long are we  going to  be insulting ourselves by receiving  foreign aids and loans   when we don’t need them ? 

How long shall we be disgracing ourselves by begging others for loan forgiveness ?

How long shall we be playing the role of the victim ?

How  long shall we continue to sell and betray ourselves to others  for smear porridge ? 

 How long shall  we continue to sell the slot of our unborn generations by mortgaging their inheritance and future to others  ?

How long shall we slumber? 

 My African brothers and sisters it is high  time  and about time for us to wake up . Oh  yes wake up to the reality on ground and to the realization that it is only we that can free ourselves from mental slavery and free  ourselves from the chains and shackles  of neo colonialism and imperialism .

My African brothers and sisters it is high time  and about time  that we must  discover our self-worth , respect and dignity .

 It is high time and about time that we stop the pity party , roll up our sleeve and get to work .

As we celebrate our liberation today   I say with high hopes that it is  high time  and about time  for us to love one another , come together as one , work

together to build a bigger , stronger and united Africa ,

for us all and our unborn generations to come .

 Long live Africa .
