Misguided Patriotism

What is so astonishing about the whole matter of Africa is that African leaders with a befuddled sense of patriotism that has no basis whatsoever have failed to see that the plight of Africa today is a critical situation that cannot and should not wait a day longer for that yet to be invented ingenious African solution. What else can anyone do to convince the elites of Africa to see the situation for what it is, a dismal failure in all sphere of human endeavour. Rather than engage in a macabre image promotion – a mediocre spin doctor-type – to which some of them have become obsessed lately, the good leader like a good commander ought to at this stage give the signal to the ignorant followers to withdraw tactically from all sentiments. These leaders ought to realise that this is the time to reinforce men and resources for a realistic battle of survival as the world moves proper in to the twenty-first century.
It is essential for the elites of Africa to be more than magnanimous in acknowledging the good works of the ever-intruding world media that send out reports on some of these critical issues. They ought to recognise that it does not serve any useful purpose going on the defensive as they always do to fob off these matters as nothing of great importance or as the evil machinations of political opponents and enemies. As an optimist and a believer in the creative talent of man, one feels the end of the second millennium and the beginning of a new one is too important a landmark in the history of mankind and should not be allowed to pass by without a review of the African situation. This period should not be allowed to pass away without allowing ourselves a little intellectual indulgence as we set out together to reflect on the whereupon and the wherewithal. It is the wish of this writer to stimulate Africans and friends of Africa to undertake similar critical reflections about Africa and its unacceptable below par position in the twenty-first century world. The aim of these reflections should be to contribute to the pool of knowledge and intellectual materials that are being devoted to a true enlightenment of Africans and for the eventual emancipation of the African race from its present predicament.
