Oh My Africa

Africa

Oh My Africa, your situation is deteriorating, you’ve watched your brothers and sisters killed in sectarian and domestic violence across the continent, extremism is on the rise. Their mission? To destroy!

Oh My Africa, crimes and kidnapping has become a routine bringing a grim future to what was once bright; there is no help in sight, your children are left in the hands of ignorant helpers.

Oh My Africa, your justice system remains ineffective. Your leaders are corrupt. Violence and rape against your mothers, sisters and children are on the rise, no one dares to speak the truth because truth seekers have no place in history.

Oh My Africa, illiteracy has enslaved you, the land has becomes barren. The rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. Maybe you reaped what you sowed because you choose to forget history.

Oh My Africa, you torture your own; you have no respect for human lives and properties. Your young are sacrificed to appease your gods. Those who ran, left to find peace and justice in a foreign land.

Oh My Africa, you were the cradle of civilization, blessed with natural resources, you had diamond, silver and gold but you gave them away. The looters came back and took that which was once yours.

Oh My Africa, I had another kind of revelation. I saw a generation of new leaders emerging, it somewhat reminded me of the Israelites when they left the land of Egypt into the Promised Land.
