Leadership is the key here, compare to American’s founding fathers and Presidents like Abe Lincoln, FDR, JFK and Ronald Regan all we see is the aspiring leadership from the positive leaders at the gruesome time that human being can doubt to see a brighter future like light at the end of unknown tunnel. Instead these leaders inspire and insight “the people” and they made sure that they see the light at the end of the tunnel. These leader made problems the solutions and and transformed society where everyone benefited from such solutions i.e. internet, infrastructure, good governance, empowerment to people e.t.c. Unlike African Leaders who makes problems more problematic and feed off them for personal gains i.e. power problems and project contracts aimed to tackle community problems that are often not solutions rather addition problems to Africans. It is all about “the people” and a good leader who knows how to articulate the powers of the people by the people to reach the desired goals as one people and one nation. Who can resist such truth and inspiring examples? It is sad when you see what is wrong and see people who knows better and should do something about it; instead they go about their business harvest for themselves and leaver millions to fen-for themselves.
This leaves many in the cumbersome life struggles like we have witnessed in Africa as a whole. One of my very close people in my life, also an African Diaspora has told me that Africans, all nations each are in “need of constitution to guide us how our country should be run.” Another thing I was going to add on this is yes the constitution is fine but we should make sure every Bongo person abides by and respects the constitution because whoever doesn’t then the law will take over. My question is do our characters reflect that we can do it? Probably not but if we’re determined we can do it. Look at the industrialized nations. It took so long to be where they’re. Rome was not built in a day” This is true and its entirety, we need leaders who are bold and wise to put together fair and equal living document (Constitution) that explicitly describe powers sharing, equal rights to all, and provisions that are to be used to enforce this living document where no one is above the law; just like the American founding fathers and European wise-gentlemen did; whereby regardless who is in power in their countries won’t get drunk powers, and if one fool gets drunk powers wont brutally destroy lives their national fabric like African leaders/Mugabe did, rather gets voted out or impeached by the same provisions of the living document. There is an old say that you can trust human when he/she is mixed together with powers and or money, this is always true. Do some soul searching and find out by yourself.
