It’s clear-cut in our day-to-day actions,the bitter truth is that we are not proud of ourselves and culture.We have not yet began to logicalize and when we start to think we will begin to enjoy change we’ve long yearned for.
We indirectly colonise ourselves.Why do we have to copy-paste European and American culture?When i mention Europeans and Americans some might analyse am promoting racial discrimination,maybe u haven’t started to think.
We are biased towards ourselves.when given opportunity to elect leaders,we elect thieves! depending on the depth of their pockets and who later camouflages to become students and graduates of Adolf Hitler University.
When will we stop treating our former colonials as expertriates in our own land but they treat us as refugees.We mistreat our own especially during public services delivery but when a Sycophant European appears everyone’s eyebrows rises and officials lay them red carpet.We try raise our voices condemning racial discrimination but we promote them ourselves.
Why can’t we be our own Tourists? when we tour Europe or America do they refer to us as Tourists? NO! “Immigrants”
We invent but they develope.We produce Neurosurgeons,Orthopedics but they don’t reciprocate back, we still have to travel overseas to seek medical attention because we still believe our former colonisers are the best.Today many run to seek refuge in India and soon to Dubai(UAE).Our pride is lost!Engineers graduate yearly with degrees,masters and PHDs but we still give Chinese,Japanese contracts to develope our transport systems.
Why do we have Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) Kenya,Centre Hospitalier et Universitaire Hassan Morrocco,Gambro Health Care
Switzerland,Net Care Group South Africa,Arab Contractors Egypt?We’ve totally lost trust and faith in them and our Doctors too.
Why do we have University Of Nairobi Kenya, Makerere University Uganda if we are taking our sons and daughters to study under foreign systems and graduate out of Africa? The pride and trust seems to be long vanished.
We prefer calling fried white potatoes French fries in our local hotels and restaurants and why can’t we refer to it as “Nairobi fries“,”Kampala fries“,”Lagos fries“,”Dar es salam fries“? Is this being classic?no,we are loosing alot.
Colonialism is not over!As we continue to elect thieves.
We are proffesional dancers.At the airport we dance welcoming foreigners.At functions we dance to entertain foreigners. When our leaders steal public funds,we still dance!When harrased in foreign airports,we come back home and still dance for them!
One party state system failed,democracy is now failing.We are still killing ourselves,stealing from our own,laughing at ourselves,still divided along ethnic lines.
Did our freedom fighters fight for independence to be dependent on donors or independent for ourselves?
To our Leaders,little opportunity given to a monkey to wear clothes doesn’t guarantee it to join the dining table.
