What do you think?

Filed under: Uncategorized — Bwandungi @ 6:38 pm

Remember the days when an educated young black person was the light of a village? The 60s were incredibly hopeful for Africa. Everywhere governments were sending young black people abroad to study, universities sprouted like mushrooms in the night and the privilege of studying there was bestowed upon determined youth who would carry the village into the future.

Philosophy, sociology, mathematics, history, the sciences, the fine arts… and Uganda did not play a small part in that growth spurt my friend. A simple traipse into the world’s renowned university, Makerere, would show you things that would astonish. Sculptures, paintings, books… We were going somewhere.

So what happened? Why are we stuck in this quagmire?  Why do presidents have to be paid $5M to relinquish power?

If we spent about 30 minutes allowing ourselves to think for a minute, we would see that there are those who gain from Africa always being in turmoil. $5M is not any kind of solution. They have more than $5M stashed away in some swiss account and they’d like some more.

Who benefits?

  1. yes… there are those that stand to gain from africa being in turmoil.

    capitalism and the land of the free and the home of the brave need somebody to be poor in order that they may be rich.

    Those who have little… even the little they have shall be taken away.
    – a morbid, but true quote from JC himself!
