Africa, the troubled continent of the world. The continent filled with the most insensitive leaders in the world. A continent filled with the worst sit-tight leaders in the world. A continent riddled with corruption which has eaten into the barest fabric of our daily lives. Oh Africa! I cry for a continent which knows no peace. A continent which
lacks its own ideology and over the centuries have been forced to accept and kill ourselves over the ideologies of foreigners.
Africa, you have become a disappointment to us, many of us which we were not from you, many wish they were born into another continent but you, our sons and daughters suffer humiliation, segregation, racial assaults in the hands of foreigners and yet find no solace within you.
We fight ourselves over the smallest issues, let the foreigners run us like a chess game where our leaders dance to their every whims without caring about the masses, which continent in the world is more blessed than Africa? None, we have human resources and natural resources higher than any continent in the face of the universe so why are we still the way we are? Why are we still the pawn of foreigners who push us around at while.
Africa the land of plenty where the people are suffering and the few living off the land and resources meant for all of us. How long must our people keep dying?
The western countries with nothing still have plenty for their citizens, their children attend good schools and we end up sending ours to them for training when we can have all that here. We let outsiders determine the economy which makes us the struggling and suffering economies and them the privileged economy. Africa, poor Africa. I wish we have leaders who really love you and want to make you better.
I wish our leaders can stop being deceived by very little things and confused into causing strife for the people. The sponsors that encourage us to suicide-bomb each other sit on the side-line and laugh at our ignorance while we keep destroying ourselves and letting development elude us.
The financial body that tells you to enact policies that makes your people suffer and still messes you up in the end making your economy crash even further than it was to their own benefits, the foreign presidents that convince you to enact policies that work in their countries but definitely doesn't work in ours. They don't care about us. If they could, as Hitler planned, Africa would be wiped off the face of the planet so they can get their hands at our blessings from God.
They invented plagues and diseases like HIV to control our population and our economy. Our leaders are like children being handed snacks, like dogs given bones and the corruption and greed in them prevents them from seeing through the mask and veil used to blind them. Africa, I fear for you.
May God help us because he is our only hope.
After all the hype, the real CULPRITS OF THIS TRAGEDY THAT BEFELL NIGERIA MAY NEVER BE BROUGHT TO BOOK. LIKE EVERYTHING THAT INVOLVES FOREIGNERS IN NIGERIA, THEY ARE TACTICALLY SHOVED UNDER THE CUPBOARD AND MORE PEOPLE KEEP DIEING.
GOD BE WITH ALL WHO LOST THEIR LIVES IN THIS GREAT TRAGEDY THAT BEFELL NIGERIA, THE CRASH OF DANA FLIGHT 0992 AND TO THEIR FAMILIES THE FORTITUDE TO BEAR THIS IRREPARABLE LOSS.
