Curse of Africa

The Question :::

Am I Proud To Be

An African??

Well, You Will Find My Answer In This Story

Africa does not only make my heart bleed but also my intestines. Africa is just a sad story of my lifetime. Years have passed by and each year I have been asking myself,

What is really wrong with Africa or being an African?”

I never got to get a real answer and in most cases the only answer that came into my mind is that of a “Deprived Reasoning”, but then this answer was never comprehensive. As matter of fact, it was just half the answer. So I was left to spend a couple of years researching for the right answer for Africa. But alike with most researches, simple things becomes complex and in the end it all gets complicated yet the answer was so simple and plain.

It is called Shipwrecked or “B-L-I-N-D F-A-I-T-H”  in simple terms  “Confusion”.

In this discussion, this is the first of the 5 part series of my findings about the severe problem with Africa. It  is a  highly infectious deadly virus that is so toxic that it not only affect our reasoning capacity but also robs away common sense from Africa. I call it “The Curse of Africa” and in this series, I am just making an introduction.

Now Belief is the state of mind in which a person thinks something to be the case, with or without there being empirical evidence to prove that something is the case with factual certainty. Another way of defining belief sees it as a mental representation of an attitude positively oriented towards the likelihood of something being true whilst faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. Faith is merely the extent of belief. In other words, if your belief is so strong that it affects your actions and attitudes, it has become faith. If you have complete confidence in something or someone, you have faith. Faith is synonymous with the word, trust. Thus if someone is "faithful" then they are someone you can trust In other words, Faith is confidence or trust in a person or thing; or the observance of an obligation from loyalty or fidelity to a person, promise, engagement or it may refer to a particular system of belief, as such faith is confidence based on some perceived degree of warrant

The African system has put faith a completely wrong systems regarding life principles. This means Africa has put  confidence and beliefs in completely wrong and false things. My research identified the two prime institutions which influence every single moments of everyone’s life the world over, social influence. In economics the factors of production are only four land, capital, labor and entrepreneurship. This is a constant production condition which will never change in this world or in the world to come.

Now the social factors which impacts on our daily lives are just two, politics and religion. These two directs people’s lifestyles. Unlike factors of production which are forever constant, social influences can change anytime because they are choice oriented. This is where Africa got it all wrong. Africa has invested faith in totally mediocrity, called blind faith.

When I was at high school, I also studied African history. The most loud topic in African history textbook is Imperialism, in detail Scramble and Partitioning of Africa as well as slavery. It is about colonization of the continent by foreign settlers. It is all about the impact and wholesale takeover of the African resources by settlers. It is very important that every student must know these historical past, as a matter of fact it is actually a right. Quite true, the past can never be undone. That is impossible but people can use the past experiences to do better. I also believe that history can train us to be better mankind as imposed to retaliate.

“And for the record, retaliation is never right and no amount of retaliation can compensate any form of wrongs or atrocities. I also believe that whoever the settlers were and from wherever they came from is not of much importance but what is true and correct is obvious,

they found something special that existed in Africa which they didn’t have

Africa possessed something which their homelands didn’t have. If my history is correct then I read that they also colonized not only in Africa but also went as far as America and so forth.

Now this is how the sad story of Africa can be summarized or quantified. Even after the last country to be under settlers rule was freed 23 years ago, in April 1994, (South Africa), African rulers still blame the former imperialists rulers for their own inability to transform Africa. The list of African rulers include Robert Mugabe who has been ruling Zimbabwe for over 3 decades as well as Dos Santos who has been at the helm of Angola since 1978-9. These rulers are always promising their citizens better improved future yet they have delivered absolute nothing but loaded reinforced hardships to the citizens for decades they have been in power. They always preached socialist systems  yet they are extreme capitalists.

Now if common sense prevails, then what future are these African rulers promising when they have been in power for over 3 decades.? How much time do they need to bring home that future? In a civilized political system, a proper democratic system of governance, a government term is a 4 or 5 year period. After this period new elections are held. Why? It is because without doubt the civilized system understands that 4 year term is a very sufficient time for any good leader to deliver positive changes to the citizens. But with African rulers, they believe in another philosophy, uncivilized one which has no time specs, because they have nothing to deliver. This is the reason they all want to die in power.

Case Study: Isn't it a sad story that Dos Santos daughter controls Angola's oil industry whilst at the same time she is investing the billions she is looting from Angola in Europe, (Portugal, Netherlands and the likes). So in this instance which country is benefiting , Angola or Portugal. Stealing from Angola and giving it all to Europe, and you wake up preaching that the former settlers have looted your resources. What makes this story so sad is the fact that Isabel’s investments are directly financed through treasury.

African rulers borrow from international institutions such as the world bank and IMF to finance infrastructural development projects and only put just a small fraction  of that money into the project and loot the rest. Ten years later that project was either never started or completed yet the country will be liable to pay back the loan with interest to these institutes. So in this scenario, isn’t it clear that the rulers are only stealing from Africa whilst making the continent more poorer  by indebting their countries whilst contributing in financing development of the west.

In summary, African rulers loot from Africa and invest overseas. So if sanity prevails, you  ultimately know who benefits from this looting. Certainly not Africa.

USA was colonized by Britain, but Americans  don’t even waste a single seconds of their breath complaining about British settlers period. As a matter of fact all USA leaders have concentrated on just one vision, a dream of making USA a strongest powerhouse everyday.

My story is simple, the African political system of rulers has to come to an end. Total transformation is needed here. Africa needs leaders not rulers. This makes my first call.

Now the second institution that shapes human faith is “Religion”

Religion is the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods. Religious practices may include rituals, sermons, commemoration or veneration of God or deities, sacrifices, festivals, feasts,trances, initiations, meditation, prayer or other aspects of human culture

Africa and its inhabitants is one community which is so lost when it comes to religion. They just don’t know what to follow or believe. Africa believe in anything and submit to anything. It is about the hope for life and how we worship God but with Africa, religion has been transformed to resemble a complete different thing. Africa sees religion as a way of enhancing lives supernaturally. This deprived understanding has directed Africa to invest so much faith in supernatural powers to transform their day to day fortunes.

For centuries, Africans would invest trust in spiritualists in form of witch doctors and faith healers such as the current phase of fake or false prophets of prosperity without getting any positive results from such trust. I call this group of spiritualists fortune blessers. Africa just  hope in things which never existed even for a second but keep on trusting such things. On simple things of life that requires just a resourceful mind (thinking ability) and working body to earn a reward of desired lifestyle, Africa believe in black magic or prophet charms for that enhancement. Africa rejects the constant principles of prosperity to life which is simple, being productive. If anything else then this state of  mindset requires complete transformation.

But one thing that confuses me is the inconsistencies with an African understanding. Africa understands that good education should transfer knowledge, strengthen a mind and ultimately prepares children for life, work and citizenship. Africans even invest a lot of their hard earned money in ensuring that an African child goes to school, even if it means selling their livestocks. More-so when the child does not perform well at school, Africans takes remedial approach just for that African child to get education.

For me this is the basic principle for mankind and demonstrates a reasoning mind and an acceptable approach to life. I have never heard any single instance where an African mother would take their failing child to a witch doctor or prophet for blessings so that she can pass. I have never heard any single instance where an African father could take his child to a prophet or witch doctor when his child is expelled from school for failing to pay school fees

This is obvious, when a child fails, you have to take the necessary corrective steps for that child to pass the test or exam and also when a child cant go to school because of fees, an a reasonable parent also have to take necessary steps to get the money to pay the fees, its either you work for it or you borrow or you even steal to get the money. Other than that, there is no other shortcut to get that money and it’s a constant condition in our daily lives which will never change.

Now my question is, If Africa understand this direct and correct approach to life at the early stages, how then is the African mindset polluted to think of supernaturally solutions at an advanced stage in life. If Africa understands that these fortune blessers can not fix this simple problems in the early stages, now how come they still believe in this nonsense for more complex things such as getting prosperous in life. Why cant these fortune blessers just either turn stones into money and give them or just transform the minds of children to understand better or just provide the children with qualifications in whatever field supernaturally.? Why cant these fortune blessers pray for that child and cast away the so called spirit which will be causing the child to fail?. The answer is very simple. It is proven that those solutions at early stage requires tangible deliverances. Without these, there will not be any solution.

Now this is my point, there are basic life principles which Africa misses and this is why Africa is considered poor yet it is very rich if not the richest landscape of this world. It is about time Africa need to wake up from the slumber and start doing things right.

The key to prosperity is simple and it never changes, basic education is a good and set standard foundation, but the best agility is to identify our personal strengths we have and use them to the maximum productivity.

Everyone has a good gift which can make him or her a great person but often times we miss that point by paying attention and concentrating on completely wrong things.

We are witnessing several new generation charms of all sorts with these new age Pentecostal churches running rings in Africa. Anointed oil, anointed water, anointed bible, anointed dolls, anointed maize cobs, hey the list is endless, just everything is anointed.

Everything is just anointed and all this just for the sale to make money. Some of them did miracle money, miracle gold etc. But how come not even a single person from the thousands of congregation got rich from these things.

The answer is simple, it is all fake, magic, counterfeit and not real hence nothing is sustainable through magic, but Africa refuses to understand this simple logic.

All these stupid miracles are not biblical. What is only biblical about these miracles is that it is well documented in the scriptures that these false teachers and workers of miracles shall come to deceive many through counterfeit power.

"For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect.”

 Mathew 24:24

If Africa really believes in God the Father who is the author of the bible, the living word, then why is it they do not practice the teachings in those scriptures but in-turn love to follow in these deceptive counterfeit spirits. A warning against these spirits and teachings is fully prescribed in the scriptures. What really makes my heart bleed is that the same thousands of congregation are just enriching these new age fortune blessers who are not only fake but just magicians taking their works to the church. 

These magicians are not just mocking prophecies but God too . Time and again they do predictions which are obvious especially about deaths of very old prominent persons. So many times they have taken countless times to predict Mugabe’s death. This is pathetic isn’t it. Quite true Mugabe is old and no one can argue about that. He is not a sick person but just like anyone in his old age, it is common sense that his system of health can not be compared to that of a 40 year old.

Personally I don’t like Mugabe’s system at all and is the least person I would want to talk about but the truth is the man has lived a very health life and God blessed him with that gift of life and not even any single person can take that away from him. At 93, the man is walking without a helping hand or stick, he climbs stairs time and again, how many people of that age can do that. But isn’t it shameful that these so called prophets or magicians have been taking race for attention by predicting his death which has never occurred up to now. It is obvious that sooner or later the man is going to rest not just because of his age but it’s a natural process for all of us .

Now all these magicians are racing to make not just the most accurate prediction but a famous one and it has all counted to nothing. Only God knows how and when a person dies. So please these magicians must just shut their mouths. And what concerns me most is the fact that regardless of these quantifiable false predictions, you find my fellow Africans still believing these diviners. All these diviners wants is fame and popularity and then make more money by deceiving those who are rejecting common sense.                                                                                                                    

My point is, these magicians and sorcerers existed even in the ancient times and all their works which do not differ from what we see today are well documented in the scriptures, but Africa seem to turn a blind eye and submit to this nonsense.

The world over Religion shapes lifestyles, and no wonder why this state of mediocrity brought about by this confusion shapes the drama in African lifestyle, condemning African habitants for the worst.. Now If Sanity Prevails These are Just but few warnings and teachings in the scriptures against these greedy breed of faith fortune blessers which I can share

“If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the Lord does not take place or come true, that is a message the Lord has not spoken. That prophet has spoken presumptuously. Do not be afraid of him”  Deut. 18:22)

“But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed. And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.”

2 Peter 2:1-3

“And many false prophet will appear and deceive many”.    Mathew 24:11

“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.”  Matthew 7:15

My question to the so called Christians who are trapped in this fantasy world of magicians is, What do they read from these warnings above?, & do they ever make sense to them at all?

Now taking a cue to these Typical Scriptural References

Acts 8:9-13

‘There was a certain man named Simon, who formerly was practicing magic in the city, and astonishing the people of Samaria, claiming to be

someone great ; and they all, from smallest to greatest, were giving attention to him, saying, “This man is what is called the Great Power o

 God.” And they were giving him attention because he had for a long time astonished them with his magic arts. But when they believed Philip

preaching the good news about the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ,       they             were                    being baptized, men and women

alike. And even Simon himself believed; and after being baptized, he continued on with Philip; and as he observed signs and great miracles

Acts 8:9-13)


Acts 16:16-18

It happened that as we were going to the place of prayer, a slave-girl having a spirit of divination met us, who was bringing her masters much profit by fortune-telling. Following after Paul and us, she kept crying out, saying, "These men are bond-servants of the Most High God, who are proclaiming to you the way of salvation." She continued doing this for many days. But Paul was greatly annoyed, and turned and said to the spirit, "I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her!" And it came out at that very moment.

 Acts 13:6-8

When they had gone through the whole island as far as Paphos, they found a magician, a Jewish false prophet whose name was Bar-Jesus, who was with the proconsul, Sergius Paulus, a man of intelligence. This man summoned Barnabas and Saul and sought to hear the word of God. But Elymas the magician (for so his name is translated) was opposing them, seeking to turn the proconsul away from the faith.

I like these precise description “they found a magician, a Jewish false prophet” Look the biblical connotation, the so called Prophet is referred to as a magician. In simple terms, these magicians posing as prophets have always been there in the churches of God from also old days so it is nothing new at all that we are seeing

I am not a master of scriptures but from what I have read, it is obvious my sense understanding got it all right and I have accepted common sense to prevail,

these magicians were there before

It makes more sense to call these false prophets “fake prophets” or prophets of profit for like the ravenous wolves who want to exploit, extort, and fleece the sheep, the false prophets seek to do this only “because they are turning whole families away from the truth by their false teaching. And they do it only for money (Titus 1:11). Some even go so far as to say “that godliness is a means to financial gain” (1st Tim 6:5) where Paul was warning Timothy about false teachers with ungodly motivations (1st Tim 6:3-5) but you can be sure of this, “the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.” (2nd Tim 4:3-4) and I believe that time has come to stop the spread of this rubbish

This is my point, magic is fake and counterfeit, its never real hence you can not depend on magic in this life. If you want things to happen , then employ nothing else but works to it. So my call is for Africa to renew its mindset and reject this deprived thinking and its teachings

Just recent , because everyone else (especially those who are not eligible to vote) were hoping that Hillary Clinton was going to win US elections. Now someone else would take advantage of the thousands of congregation present during his service least to say other millions of viewers worldwide, claiming to prophesy that Hillary Clinton was going to win the US elections amid great applause from the vulnerable worshipers.

Had this happened, the man was going to get praises from all over for predicting a near obvious eventualities but God had other plans and the prediction turned out wrong. Now what does he do next, instead of just shutting his mouth, the man had a nerve to come again live on TV during the service lying that after his prophecy people in America fasted, some of them even naked and God heard them and changed the prophecy. Now if sanity prevails, is this for real?

If this man really had an American elections vision then this is how he would have sold his prediction.

 “He should have mentioned that Hillary Clinton was winning the election but God chose Donald Trump.”

This could have been a true prediction but to come out weeks later after the results and defending his lies with another lie is really a mockery to God and the meaning of the word prophecy

If my sense of reasoning is sound then this is what we call false hopes. No other explanation but fake gospel criminals. This toxic gospel is spreading dreadful social influences to the African community and has to be stopped now before this virus infect everyone. As a matter of fact it has to be criminalized.

“This is what the LORD Almighty says: “Do not listen to what the prophets are prophesying to you; they fill you with false hopes. They speak visions from their own minds, not from the mouth of the LORD.”

Jeremiah 23:16

False hope is what these diviners are giving people , and sadly this is well documented in the scriptures which are the manuals for Christian religion but those being cheated turn a blind ear to the sound teaching in the bible and pay attention to the what their ears are itching to hear, fake and spectacular gospel

If the so called Christians believe in the God of Christ, and have bibles with all these scriptures then my call is for Africans to employ a degree of common sense and start reasoning and allow common sense to prevail

But now it doesn’t end there, My concern is inspite of all this evidence, Africa still believes this man is sent by God. My point is Africa spent time and believing in wrong things to life. Its about time Africa transforms and starts with sound leadership. And I also believe these magicians must now be stopped before the whole continent gets contaminated with this polluted wayward understanding otherwise it will reduce citizens to a bunch of uncivilized mammals. If Africa had real leaders then all of these prosperity prophets should have been prosecuted by now because they are stealing from people. This prosperity gospel is as good as commercialized embezzlement of highest degree.

When you lure someone to give you money whilst promising them good fortune returns, what do we call that?. This is surely theft and charges must follow, period. Do people buy blessings? Honestly this has nothing to do with freedom of Religion but more than a criminal act of extortion.

But the sad story is, African leaders also buy into these nonsensical primitive acts. So to them, this kind of embezzlement is never a crime. Without any doubt what these fortune blessers are doing a chargeable criminal act. Now my question is, how come Africa absolves this crime from all other crimes.?

Well, countless answers are at our disposals to see.

Only in Africa , when one accepts sanity, accept a degree of common sense called reasoning and he starts engaging in activities and works that demonstrates someone is thinking, he is either labeled an object of the west or someone will be using him.

Only in Africa where you can see a professor or doctor consulting fortune blessers, It is disgusting and unthinkable that such intellectuals can actually submit to magicians. Its completely education went to waste.

Only in Africa when someone consults a witch doctor who does not own even a dog for fortune charms or blessings

Only, in Africa you find a government duped by spiritualist to believe that they have not only oil reserves but fully refined

petroleum deposits coming from a rock. In a country full of geologists and scientists the whole cabinet plus its president races to

perform rituals to appease the unknown spirits without even consulting specialists for feasibility.

Ref:: Mugabe & His government 2007

Can someone tell me there is sanity there.?

Only in Africa you will find a sitting president claiming to have some super natural powers and exorcise demons at government presidential palace.

What is this nonsense.?  

Ref:: Yahya Jammeh of Gambia

Only in Africa you will find a sitting president claiming to be bewitched

Ref: Mugabe 2014

Accusing his vice president Mujuru of having hired witches from Nigeria

The list is endless. This is  just rubbish. Why all this nonsense,? It is all because Africa believes in complete wrong things. This nonsense has condemned Africa to unsustainable levels of  mediocrity. And it has to be stopped now.

Its unfortunate Africa doesn’t seem to realize that these magicians, fortune blessers  are in business of taking their money and nothing else whilst giving them

false hopes

I also belong to this era where Africa has  leadership crisis. The so called leaders whom I prefer to call “Rulers” completely lost the plot. Yes Africa is void of real leaders but hive of  rulers. Rulers always load it on to the people anl put decrees that makes sure the people always carry them to their destiny, which is obvious, looting and repression

There is a big difference between rulers and leaders. This is how I understand leadership. This is own my definition and understanding.

“A good leader delivers now and enhance better lifestyles for the citizens, whilst putting up policy systems that gives citizens hope and confidence for a better and sustainable future. Leaders set the pace and their people follow. A leader accept responsibility and is accountable of his actions whilst rulers are never wrong and always play the blame tune. Leaders can be easily replaced from power yet rulers always leave power unwillingly, most of them either die in power or are overthrowned.

Let it be clear, there is a false tendency always preached by these power hungry rulers. They always make recurring pronouncements that they are preparing the good future for upcoming generations. This is a textbook foolish lie. We only live once and there is no second opportunity to this earthly life so there is no such provision for a leader to promise me a better life for future generations when he himself and his family and friends are living their lives to the maximum. That is absolute rubbish. We all want to enjoy our lives and it has to be now. There is no second opportunity to this life.

Now most Africans claim to be Christians and will this scripture teach them anything? “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” Mathiew 6:34

So why do we allow someone to fool us with promise for tomorrow when they can not deliver today. When will Africa understands that we only live once and we need to live our lives. Our children also have their own lives to live. They will fight their own battles in their own time.  Where do Africa get the assurance of a better tomorrow for their children when these rulers are clueless of today matters. All humanity must live  their lives to the fullest so what ever good has to come now not tomorrow or indefinite. Africa needs to fights for what it deserves now. A good leader does not stick to empty promises but he delivers. Nothing more and nothing less and without this, they is no leadership, period. Words are cheap” All we live for is a better enhanced lifestyle by each day. Not suffering for the future generations. The future generations have their own life to decide. The only assurance for a better tomorrow for the next generations must start with sustainable today. Give the citizens a life now and they will certainly have confidence of a better tomorrow but loading vulnerable citizens with re-enforced hardships with each day is what these rulers are doing. Africa deserves better.

Africa must understand that a year is morethan enough period for a good leader to demonstrate his ability to lead his people by simplifying their livestyles and 4-5 year term is morethan adequate period to trust a person with reigns of power. Failure to demonstrate those qualities the Africa must show that leader a boot without fail. The reason why this has not been possible in Africa is because Africa has invested faith in wrong and false hope. Africa refuses to adopt a system but puts faith in individuals. That individual becomes a system. Now when that one individual becomes a system, he monopolize all power and influence just to himself. This is very dangerous because once that individual becomes a system he has absolute power and controls everything, when that happens he becomes indispensible. This is the reason Africa struggles to replace a leader, It is because you will not be removing just a person but a system and a system can not just be removed by a simple ballot box, no that’s not realistic.

Leaders are suppose set the pace in essence it means “to lead” and their citizens follow but with Africa it is complete the opposite. The so called African leaders steal the from the little livehood of citizens whilst completely shutting down any prospects for an improved future by creating a blink and unsustainable present with vivid hardships coupled with a bleak future whilst at same time creating superficial luxury by enriching themselves only. They are not accountable to any system and they eliminate every form of challenge and opposition. This is why they are rulers. To be called a ruler is just a soft copy of being called a dictator. Africa creates dictators.

Now this is my call, Africa need sanity. My quest is to belong to a society that really demonstrates a reasoning capacity, being white ,black, indian colored or whatever doesn’t matter, what matters is a reasoning mind.

An African mind needs transformation.

In Africa if  one works hard and gets good returns from his business they are 3 conclusions from the man next door. Its either he is stealing or he is using muti or he is someone’s front . This mindset brings nothing but sadness

In Africa, one person can start his business well by applying basic business principles and when his business is flourishing, he consults fortune blessers for some powers in the name of stabilizing the business as well as to keep prospering. My question then is, WHERE WERE THESE FORTUNE BLESSERS WHEN YOU STARTED YOUR BUSINESS?. HOW COME THEY NEVER GAVE YOU THE BLESSINGS AND CHARM TO START IT?.  Degree of Common Sense Is urgently Needed Here.

Now this has to come to an end, this fortune blesser thing is teaching wrong and dangerous social values. The value of laziness and  legalized embezzlement . The message is, you are allowed to steal but only if you are in church or at a witch doctors shrine.

My fellow Africans, lets not get confused, money is not spiritual and money is a physical legal tender created by people to facilitate transactions. It is the responsibilities of all governments and administrations to ensure that the legal tender is not abused and is used in a normal way it is intended to. Any proper administration has the right to audit and control all money related schemes. But to my surprise, these fortune blessers are allowed to defraud vulnerable citizens in broad daylight.

Only if Africa had real leaders or competent governments then this is theft and such acts should be treated just as with many other crimes. As if this is not enough this system demonstrates a society refusing common sense. An impoverished understanding,.

Now this is what I call common sense, the spiritual world of fortune blessers tell us that they can be anywhere anytime. As a fact they claim that a witch can travel the whole world in a ‘plate’ at night and do his business and come back. Lets say this is true then if I accept the fact that God blessed me with brains to think and a mind to reason then I should ask myself this questions,

What then is the benefit or achievement in doing so?. I mean what is the witch benefitting in traveling around the world in a split of a second yet the same person has no clue or idea of the physical things where he or she is said to have travelled?. What are the fruits of such a mission?. What value does this add to his or her life.? You can ask yourself many questions but the ultimate answer is zero. Why because its all fake and lies. No amount of magic has ever been real.

Now the opposite is true, those who have capacity to reason created internet, and anyone can explore the world from anywhere using this virtual network and it is real. You get your results and share with everyone for the benefit of those who need such information. We got planes that can transport us all over the world anytime. So now, why still believing in this underworld principles with zero benefits?.

One thing I don’t understand why Africans who are deceived to believe that these fortune blessers are a recipe to prosperous life and riches, if you believe in such nonsense, good for you but if you can add sanity to your belief  then why cant you just receive all the cash and goodies and prosperity whilst you are seated at home supernaturally.

Africa is fighting civilization whilst promoting insanity. In Africa, common sense or sense of reasoning is naturally outlawed by mis-placed trust, thus believing in wrong things. Now there is one constant result you get when you believe in wrong things, zero results and complete failure in everything. This is why Africa is not developing at the same level with the rest of the world regardless of the fact that civilization origins include the Egyptians in Africa. Isn't it a disgrace, you start something and someone learns from you and overtakes you in your own game.?

If only there is anyone who can give me the formula to just not being an African then I would buy it for any price, cause an African mindset is just a disgrace. My apologies if I am offending someone but this is a fact. Unfortunately it is impossible because my African condition is permanent and can never be changed by adopting European or American citizenship. You will still be an African. The only way I can stop being an African is when I completely leave this earthly world by joining all other souls that has departed us, otherwise no amount of citizenship change can transform any African to be another citizen.

If I had a way for me to be a citizen of those countries in the civilized world then with a split of a second I would jump for it because the civilized thinks straight-up and they all have a common approach to a system that benefits interests of its citizens, look at American and British policies . As a matter of fact, many uninformed would say America is brutal, arrogant, evil and bullish because it’s a super power. No my dear friends this is very wrong, the only accusation I can bring against Americans is that they seem to have stolen sanity from Africans and add to their own sanity so they understand system of life much better. I am not saying they stole our sanity, no listen carefully to the scope of my statement. Africa is a state of confusion, and disorder whilst America and the civilized world has all forms of order, hence as long Africa keeps on rejecting reasoning, Americans and the civilized world will reinforce investing in making sure that they is disorder and confusion of every type in Africa. America and the civilized world love it because they do benefit from such disorder. So now who can blame America.

This is what the civilized world does. The civilized world protects its territory whilst expanding its interests. This is exactly what America and the civilized have been concentrating on yet Africa do exactly the opposite. Africa consumes its own, kills, robs, vandalize and steals from its own. In simple terms Africa devastates and fight its own, whilst at the same time expect others (the civilized world) to take care of it. Because of this blunt impoverished mindset, Africa does not take responsibility of its acute primitive actions and always blame the civilized world of its failures, why?, because Africa is fighting civilization so there are always contradicting, civil and uncivil.

I know I am an African and no amount of citizenship can change my natural being. This is why my fellow black Americans are referred to as Afro-American. Maybe many do not know what this implies. It simply means that THEY ARE AFRICANS LIVING IN AMERICA. That African descent can never be replaced by any amount of citizenship adoption. Not at all. Not today and not ever. So as an African who has been privileged to some acceptable level of sanity, It is my responsibility to campaign for sanity throughout Africa, hence this is my campaign, Africa wake up Reason

Now then, who must stop this nonsense?, the answer is simple, Africans and African leaders must take the lead. But how come African leaders are doing nothing to it?. Its simple , Africa has no leaders but rulers, and so they can not address social matters correctly because its not anywhere near their vision of power and priorities. Rulers do not formulate policies or systems that benefits ordinary citizens, never, but create decrees which protects and promotes their own personal interests. Hence they will allow more confusion and more disorder to flourish . If anything else then African rulers, just like those civilized societies like Americans love this disorder and also benefit from it. Then now this is a serious dilemma for Africa.

Someone may be wondering and asking himself, “what is the problem with this bantu and why am I doing it”? . Well don’t worry yourself with the answers let me give you my reason in full.

Someone may also wonder why I am doing this , the answer is simple, I am doing this campaign so that Africa may appreciate and accept sanity to prevail and when that happens Africa will be part of the civilized community and henceforth be productive and developmental.

Some other fools may also pose this question, Sanity or Insane Who Cares?, Well my answer is I cares, period. Oh Gooshh, at least I am accepting common sense to prevail, something Africa is fighting. At least I am reasoning here.

Someone who is void of understanding may say that Noone Can Please The Whole World, Its Impossible. Yes this is quite true, even in your own family, you can not please everyone but this is where sanity delivers sense, Good works are never appreciated by everyone but only those who are privileged to understand such, will learn and benefit from them and in that respect a legacy of good works is the achievement in this life we have.

Also bear in mind in this life they is one constant condition to change, its called “Action”. Whatever you want or hope to see changing in life needs action. Without any action there is no change. Hence the scope of transformation is true, “If you cant do anything , expect nothing, or let me put it this way, if you do nothing expect nothing”. I am up for this reasoning campaign because I want my fellow Africans to wake up from this slumber of “day dreaming”, transform their minds, and begin appreciating a degree of common sense and act reasonable.

Its better to do something and let the world judge you either wise or foolish than remain silent like a lukewarm, which is neither cold or hot, just be something.

For the Record Nelson Mandela is the only Leader in the history of Africa. All others are rulers. The only leader who could voluntary resign and handover power reigns to others when everyone else wanted him to be continue leading.

It’s a sad story that Nelson Mandela set the tone over a decade now when he demonstrated to Africans what leadership is all about. Mandela did not just say cheap words but he demonstrated, how to lead, racial tolerance, value of peace and forgiveness and love to all human creation.

The only African leader who accepted ageing process of life and also believed that all others can contribute in sound leadership of the country. Against all odds, All other African rulers thinks they are the only persons qualified to lead the countries indefinitely and to those who have left power, let it be clear, they did so unwillingly. Despite having experienced extreme racial marginalization first hand, Nelson Mandela never retaliated and as a matter of fact campaigned tolerance of all races and recognized all races as equal partners of this human nature

Though wounded, battered and deprived of his prime important moments of his human life, Mandela buried all the difference and never retaliated but reconciliated with those who wanted him dead for the progress of the his country, (humanity). With Mandela, I see one African leader who appreciated civilization, a clear demonstration that Africans are also privileged with the scope of sound reasoning but they just opt to defy the logic.



It’s a pity African rulers are actually reversing all the honorable examples set by Madiba and in their greedy and selfishness are eager to condemn Africa to a community hive of confusion and mediocrity.

The first step towards this call is to  accept civilized systems and  refuse the mediocrity of “misplacing our faith” in spiritual principles which are not only mis-understood but useless.

I am not saying they is no witchcraft or magic, no its there and it was also mentioned even in the Holy scriptures but it is a proven record that those things are useless and the only moment they can be effective is that it will only burden the minds of those who give attention to them. Otherwise those who don’t pay attention to such counterfeit are totally free from this useless world.

As an African from bone to blood, I want to see a very civilized African community. Once we accept this reasoning, Africa will compete with the rest of the civilized world. This African marginalization is rooted in the mindset, so the moment we adopt a sound mind, then the sky is the limit.

The civilized world understands and believes in a proven and acceptable fool proof system of doing things (life). In contrast Africa has no system and believes in mere persons as opposed to a system. When that person gets it wrong, which is the normal case, the results and implications are obvious, a string of failures. Africa needs a system, a working and civilized one. What is happening in Africa is a rejection of common sense by mocking reasoning hence this reflects just to one thing, Africa is refusing civilization.

Its just an introduction of my campaign. Now in the next chapter , I will be taking the campaign to another level and conscientize my fellow Africans. All I want is for Africa to drop the primitive mindset, reject mediocrity, accept and appreciate common sense to prevail, in this way we can together civilize Africa. I want to belong to a civilized community so Africa must transform.
