AFRICA RISING...A FAD? - L'AFRIQUE EMERGEANT...UNE MANIE?
I see a lot of Africans on social media professing their love for the continent. What remains to be seen is whether they match their love with actions. I think I understand the other high percentage who have given up and do not want anything to do with Africa, at least they are sincere. There are many of us who just pay lip service to our love for the continent, we even bow down to kiss her but turn our backs on her immediately. Looking with purpose at this continent is not for the faint of heart because you will be going against huge tidal waves. We must make up our minds whether our love for the continent is worth the sacrifice or quit professing our half-hearted allegiance. Not every African is meant to contribute to her growth, so you do not have to feel bad if you do not want to have anything to do with it. Victories are not won by numbers, they are won by passion, courage and determination. Many see the talk about Africa rising as a fad and they want to be seen as belonging to a movement. In every movement, we have those who want to promote their personal agenda and those who want to help the collective agenda, it is not just and African phenomenon. We should be free to express ourselves without any pretensions. Do you see Africa rising or you are following a fad?
