Easter...In Our Day

22 April 2014, 07:19

Yes Easter has now come and passed.

But let us look at facts that “humanity” has forgotten during these religious holidays; since I am an African – Let us start in Africa.

1. 230 schools girls has been kidnapped (and probably murdered) in Nigeria

2. CAR (for you clots that does not understand it: an acronym for Central African Republic)  According to Ban-Ki Moon there is a need for more help in CAR and said the International community was at risk of making the mistakes of the 1994 Rwanda genocide where almost 800,000 Africans died. (No mention of the AU – for obvious reasons)

4. The CAR is stands on the brink of genocide; some would say it has already commenced. (Bishop Tutu)

So we “all” enjoyed our Easter holidays!

Oscar Pistorius went on leave, Gerrie Nel went on leave, Barry Roux went on leave, Vavi went on leave, the crew that was searching for flight MA370 went on leave, and the African Union that was supposed to protect the people in CAR went on leave... (Let’s wait for the international community to act: like they did with the Rwandan Genocide)

230 people lost their lives in the Korean Ferry Disaster, 241 lives were lost in the MA370 mystery – which accounts for about 500 souls lost in accidents (over a period of 46 days). Double this number of people loses their lives a DAY in the Central African Republic – and not by accident! The whole world will stare at this and belatedly say “sorry”  

The (then) Secretary of State Warren Christopher (referring to the Rwanda genocide) did not authorize officials to use the term "genocide" until May 21, and even then, U.S. officials waited another three weeks before using the term in public.

So the whole world is going to look for 500 people that have tragically succumbed to accidents over the last 2 months while we lose ten times that many a day??

I have watched CNN, BBC, SKY etc tonight, and I came to one conclusion: This is Easter, and all of those aforementioned are a bunch of hypocrites – they report where the money is – bugger Africa!
