If practice makes it better, perfection makes it much more perfect. Africans have for long time sought for better life. But the winds of the “So-c-a-l-l-e-d” democracy have once tyrannized the diligent Africa’s traditional system and ripped out the freedom of a self-continent, once the alpha of world civilizations.
Did Africa truly need democracy?
Democracy in Africa came to and through the continent with its wings too heavy and its wherewithal to self-sustain its people despite billions of mineral richness; note that I am not talking about a rich Africa but a continent that has the potential to feed the entire world. Flattered by the West, the coconuts, these same African leaders blindly learnt how to forgo the freedom of their own people. Economic rebound in Africa is far beyond its conceptions. Over decades, the paradigm shifting is yet to improve the wills of Africa. It has instead engraved and deepened the sorrows of Africans. If the true democracy is yet to be lent from the West and channeled to Africa, it is the erroneous specimen are beyond people of Africa and would unlikely bring about positive change and well being of Africans. The power of western democracy is to have African do what they will not otherwise do.
The international system is not a friendly system, it is the beggar thy neighbor system that makes Africa poorer and poorer. Think, yea who sees brighter. This is a call for all African youths!! From the top of the mountains to the shady village, this is your time!! From the lime-armed guards to the farmers, your time is yet to come. The government in Togo is sightless to your patience for FOR decades you have sourced out your own pains. Yes, time has come!
What is truly happening is the wherewithal to lift the continent is still manually and economically maneuvered by the crooks of the West. While aid to Africa is billions, its consequences cause billions of wonderers and high death tolls. The youths in Africa, the “cheetah”, find it simply too harsh to support. The burdens are not Lilliputians, as the new generation of the continent gives no rooms to corruption and the malice of the West. Information technology simply powers down dictators in Afirca. Isn’t it all I once wanted to see? I can intone high as the unrests in the Arab world are tsunami for a brilliant Africa. African youth understands what accountability is as they give no excuse to the iron sitting and corrupted government and the power-play of the West. Yes, time has come.
Fandangos out!! It all started in Tunisia, followed by Egypt and Libya. Indeed, it is a progressive and massive revolution that has yet spread through the whole continent. Africa’s burgeoning youth sees far beyond the game. As they referee the play. This is the end of tyrannous regimes. The movement is deeply rooted and its embryonic effect is yet contaminating. From North to South and from East to West, crook governments of Africa, these same gloomy who constantly care less of their owns, are now marveling farther. The time to remove old-aged minds has arrived. The current case of Ivory Coast, Togo are within the concept of what the cheetah calls paradigm shifting. Yes, the cheetah, the young African visionaries are sickened. If Faure Gnassingbe, Laurent Gbagbo, Paul Bya have been once deaf to the cries of their owns, yes time has come.
In Africa, government workers are the richest people. While the armed, gunned umbrella, the military is the guardian satan, who constantly shutter the busy youth. The gate is simply hard-locked for the low-classman to open. Attracted and encouraged by the West, the government is simply busy money-curing, their foreign bank accounts in exchange of mineral resources of the continent while deepening the gap of economic dearth in Africa. Is Africa’s democracy a mission impossible?
If the youth in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya had accomplished in two months what trillions in Western treasure, sweat and blood could not achieve in decades of engagement. Yes CHANGE in TOGO is yet to come. In the end, the crooks of RPT are hoisted by their own petard. If Mubarak is booted out by his own military or security gadget, and so will Faure Gnassingbe by his own brothers, starting with Kpatcha and the Lucifer petards of bandit-army. The new trick to democracy is now in retreat. The same skills Faure honed from his evil father are now a challenge and can no longer be carried. Faure, your time is yet to come through. Togolese youth are sickened by the wanton affliction to their own freedom and the human wreckage you ceaselessly cause simply inspire them further for a newer Togo. The current regime in Togo is simply toast, as the youth in Togo is no longer brainwashed to survive another day of hunger and wonder under the tyranny of a hippo government.
Winging under the state of jobless to the one of fear, Africa’s youth gives zero-tolerance in all its forms of corruption and militarization. In Egypt, the mommies aren’t “mum-mi-fied” to quail the brave new generation of Egypt. So long supported by the scourge of a better tomorrow, the pains so throbbing awakes new Africans. This is where it all started, civilization wise, Egypt!!! This is how it is spreading through the whole continent. Mass movement!! Who would have thought the felons of bandits could once and forever run off?
Tomorrow’s economic freedom and self-consciousness in Africa starts from today.
