Hail the Asantehene, now “King of Kings” of Af


Thank you Michael. This is healthy food for thought for the wise and prudent.
A united Africa is a must but should charity not begin at home? When we fail to learn from the past we are destined to repeat past mistakes. The former Libyan dictator sought to give the entire continent of Africa what he was unwilling and failed to give his countrymen. The visionary Nkrumah fell into the same trap. One may be tempted to question the sincerity of the those African leaders who present themselves as championing the cause of African unity while all around them at home is chaos and instability. African unity is a noble and desirable cause but shouldn't we first learn to walk before we attempt to do a dash? African unity will remain a grandiose agenda and unattainable fleeting illusion if we fail to do first things first. Any attempt to unite an entire continent without first building solid foundations of democracy in stable and peaceful environments country to country across Africa is like putting the cart before the horse.
