Africa’s problem is self-sabotage. We gained independence and had a chance to develop our nations and people. But, we let neo-colonisation – as Nkrumah calls it – get in the way.
We destroyed ourselves through coup d’etats for decades, and when we allowed democracy in, we sabotaged ourselves again with capitalism spearheaded by the West and spreading endemic poverty. Then aid dependency became an addiction, making way for neo-colonisation and then more coup d’etats.
Africa keeps moving in self-sabotaging circles, and those who have been bold enough to break that chain are sabotaged by other Africans to keep the circle being oiled by neo-colonialists to keep moving.
After 60 years of planning to become a united front, when are we actually going to take that big step?
