Inarguably, Africa is the only continent in the world that has virtually all the natural resources domiciled in her which ought to have made her self-sufficient in recent times however, it is disgusting that the continent is still wallowing in abject poverty amidst the abundance of her resources.
Africa is still relying on the Western world for almost everything inspite of the fact that the West takes her natural resources and process them then come back to sell to Africans at exorbitant prices.
Take for instance, in the area of Crude oil, many African countries export Crude oil and sell at the international market but import the refined products like Premium Motor Spirit, Automotive Gas Oil and the rest simply because they cannot afford to operate their own refineries and as such refine their own petroleum products.
This sort of irresponsibility is as a result of leadership incompetence in the various countries of the continent.
We have lots of supposedly educated leaders in Africa but clearly, they are people who went to school to learn nothing. People whose mindsets have been enslaved by the terrible tool of imperialism – Organised Religion.
In Africa, we have leaders who are grossly entangled with the falsehood of Organised Religion, they are usually Christians or Muslims and claim to have an enviable relationship with the Eternal Creator of the Universe but in reality they are only practising religious gimmicks where they are busy serving ‘God’ – An English Deity of the immoral enslavers of our ancestors. The God of Western imperialists who unabashedly and brutally conquered our territories and mercilessly carted away resources which they used to develop their own land while they impoverished our land.
These African leaders failed woefully before even saddling the leadership positions in their various countries in the continent of Africa by accepting and practicing the religion of those who plundered our land and ridiculed our ancestors in the most damnable way.
When you look at the way these leaders behave in Africa, you would realise immediately that they are nothing but religious fanatics who are easily controlled by the Western imperialists who still have a firm grip of the resources of Africa despite the fact that physical slavery has officially ended but unfortunately, mental slavery is yet to be abolished and that explicitly explains the frivolous reason why African leaders unashamedly swear by the Christian Bible or Islamic Quran while taking their oath of office. As if the Bible or Qur’an are manuals based on our culture and traditions.
The Arabs who brought Islam to Africa enslaved Africans in the most gruesome way as well as the Western imperialists who brought Christianity to Africa and eventually balkanised the continent yet these clueless leaders from Africa still continue to pay allegiance to these tools that were used to enslave their forebearers in the most demeaning manner.
Our leaders have become so brainwashed in their practice of Organised Religion which strongly but shrewdly preaches:
“But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.”
– Matthew 5:44
“And the recompense of evil is punishment like it, but whoever forgives and amends, he shall have his reward from Allah.”
– Sura: 42 Vs 40 – Qur’an
The tenets of these Faiths preach so much on forgiving your enemies or those who have inflicted so much harm on you but hardly insist on restitution because they were created by our immoral enslavers who never deemed it fit to make restitution irrespective of the fact that they stole from us but still had the nerve to consider us less of humankind.
Those immoral enslavers with a premonition that the future generations of Africa will rise someday, subtly and maliciously created the manuals of Organised Religion in the name of “Holy Bible,” and “Holy Qur’an” with several verses like the ones stated above to perpetually enslave the minds of our people so that they will never be independent enough to seek restitution for the evil and thievery perpetuated against our ancestors and in our land.
Today, the average African is waiting on their immoral God to come and save Africa from the shackles of poverty and anguish and a sane mind wonders where was this their God when they plundered Africa and committed the most heinous crimes against the continent during the balkanisation period?
African leaders are still busy practicing the deception of doctrine and dogma of the organised fraud commonly known as Organised Religion while being puppets of imperialism from Arab, Asia, and the West.
Many Africans currently, are religious fanatics who will rather fight their fellow Africans in the defense of their immoral enslavers from the Western and Arab countries all in the name of Christianity and Islam hence neglecting their various civic responsibilities as regards holding public officers accountable. Meanwhile, the continent from whence these religions originated seldom pray and practice these religions like Africans.
Africans will rather delude themselves with the Biblical deception in Romans 13:1 which says:
“Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God.”
And because of that verse many see it as a sin or outright disobedience to hold their leaders accountable for a responsive government and the only thing that they know how to do is to pray, praying for enslaved leaders to change and while they are busy practicing their delusions of prayers which usually are efforts in futility, these leaders whose mindsets have been indoctrinated with the falsehood of Organised Religion are busy dancing to tune of their imperialistic masters, aiding them to siphon our resources and banking our public funds into the domiciliary accounts that these imperialists have helped them establish by providing safe a Heaven for these fraudulent African leaders who are nothing but despicable rogues.
The beliefs of these leaders or Africans in Organised Religion will continually impoverish the continent of Africa. They will always reduce Africa to a beggarly position at every given opportunity.
The only way forward for the true emancipation of Africa from imperialism and of course mental slavery which will definitely lead to socioeconomic growth is to groom and elect leaders who are politically and socially reformed without any allegiance to Organised Religion or belief in their doctrine and dogma which encapsulate the human mind in the worst form of servitude.
However, President Paul Kagame of Rwanda is highly appreciated as an African leader who is making genuine efforts towards restoring the lost glory of Africa in his country, and other African leaders are encouraged to eschew the gimmicks of Organised Religion and focus on real development in their various countries.
