What naive Africans don’t know is that the pervasive negativity, distrust, criticism against our own governments in Africa is a geo-strategic project financed by Western governments to separate us from our institutions and leaders.
France spends almost 300 millions euros for that propaganda every year, and the UK about 600 millions euros.
Separating us from our leaders is a strategy to pull our leaders into their hands to work for them instead of us.
The more unpopular our leaders are, the more they feel compelled to think their salvation could only come from Western protectors against their own angry populations.
If our leaders could rely on their elite, military, and their population for support, in case of aggression from the west, they might have the courage to oppose western governments bullying.
Don’t participate in the trashing and shitting on Africa. All countries have their problems, but only losers talk down and badly about their own countries endlessly.
Keep in mind, the African pessimism, bad talking, is a western project that panafricanist should not take part in.
As organized movements and elite, most of our criticisms should be private, and through productive channels.
