Nothing To Celebrate, African Union Diamond Jubilee
A question asked by Chika Onyeani in his book the capitalist nigger still begs an answer: "which European leader took office through the barrel of a gun? Less said about the Human rights violations in Zimbabwe starting in 2000. Less said about the chilling winds of xenophobia (mainly Afrophobia ) blowing in South Africa. Less said about the dictator Teodoro Obiang of Equatorial Guinea in power for more than three decades making by law personal decree that for a nation which claims to “…walk the paths of our immense happiness’’.
Fresh in our memories is the Central African Republic where François Bozizé ascended to the top office through a coup in 2003 now toppled by another rebel leader Michel Djotodia.
All the statistics I mentioned above, all the headlines in newspapers on African miseries represent men, women and children being killed raped, tortured and chained to keep a few in power. All the faces on CNN, BBC and Al Jazeera are people with ambitions. Their crime is being alive, Black and living in Africa.
