We have a situation. Africans are importing climate seasons!
In West Africa, following our seasons cycle, our ancestors set the months of December, January and March as the vacation months.
During those three hottest months of the year, there is no farm work, but only the period for funerals, festivals, circumcision, initiation ceremonies, weddings, kids entertainment.
Since the European terrorists came to Africa and succeeded to colonize the place, they brought their calendar and seasons cycle.
In Europe, the three hottest months are June, July, August, therefore like in West Africa, European ancestors set those three months as their vacation period. They stop working, they do entertainment, festivals, weddings, most offices are closed, with limited activity.
Now, stupid African governments have forced European vacation period on us. Instead of having our vacation in December, January and March, now we have set European vacation here. We have vacation now in June, July, and August.
The consequences are horrible.
June, July, August are raining seasons here. Farmers (70% of our population) are busy, and it’s the period people have to be the most productive in the year.
The cold, mild or chilly weather of June, July, August in West Africa is much more conductive for kids to learn at school, or productive intellectual work.
Instead, our schools and offices are now closed during that period but open during our hottest months when everyone is sweating under 35, 40 degrees.
Our Universities are closed, our ministries closed, our agriculture institutes have their activities winded down while it’s the height of our agricultural season.
Then during our hottest season when no farmer needs our agriculture Institutes experts, they are open using public fund to finance their air conditioning comfort.
How far Africans would go in coping stupidly others?
Do we need to go as far as copying seasons Cycle, even if that goes against our interests?
