Why I Stopped Writing For Diplomatic Aspects Newspaper

GuidoBelgium’s top scientist Guido van der Groen lied over the origins of Ebola in 2014, after speaking the truth on October 13, 1994, that America invented the virus as bio-weapon.

If a soothsayer or a clairvoyant had told Belgium years back that an African journalist will one day be in Belgium, to expose their crimes, lies and incompetence, I believe they would have said “No way.” 

Why? Because Belgium is a country that has grossly abused Africa medically and physically. They have no regard for the life of an African. The reason they built a statue for a king that killed over ten million Africans, including women and children.

After futile efforts to write for some of the European online newspapers, I had a breakthrough when the editor of Diplomatic Aspects Newspaper, Magdalena Butucea, accepted my request to write for the newspaper.

Diplomatic Aspects Newspaper is one of the biggest Europe’s online newspapers publishing the activities of the European Union, International, business, human rights and diplomatic news. The editor is very open, flexible and nice person to work with but something went wrong later.

Johan Van Dongen, the Dutch microsurgeon who lost his job when he was a lecturer at the university of Maastricht in Holland, for revealing that Aids and Ebola were man-made diseases by America to depopulate Africa, contacted me over the lies Guido van der Groene, one of the Belgians top scientists, made over the origins of Aids and Ebola.

On October 13, 1994, in an interview with Humo, one of Belgium’s news magazines, Belgium’s professor Guido van der Groen said  “The U.S. military laboratories slated for Ebola and HIV, to develop into a biological weapon in the early sixties. Because he regretted of revealing the truth, Groen now claims that: Ebola was invented in 1960’s in Fort Detrick and in Congo.

I quickly prepared an article pertaining this issue, since it has been the biggest task for world leaders, including World Health Organization and Center for Diseases Control to cover up those medical crimes against Africa, which unfortunately Aids has now become a global health problem.

The article captioned “Holland’s Professor Johan Van Dongen Challenges Belgium’s Scientist Guido van der Groen over the origins of Ebola, was submitted to the editor of Diplomatic Aspects Newspaper and it was published. Unknowing after the publication, Belgium fears of reprisal and exposure, secretly contacted the editor without my knowledge to remove the article from the web.

I wasn’t aware that such crime, another incompetence of the Belgian government has taken place eluding my attention. It was on LinkedIn’s social platform, an American reader contacted me that the article has been removed from the web. When I contacted the editor, she wouldn’t like to comment on it.

It’s her newspaper, so she can do whatever pleases her, but I am a man of truth and would always walk and work with people that follow the truth. The reason I stopped writing for the newspaper. At the moment, I am working with Johan van Dongen, who has also suffered a great deal like me for pursuing truth. We shall overcome one day because the light is powerful than darkness.

The Men Called Intrepid: Johan Van Dongen And Joel Savage

HIV 7A new aggressive strain of the HIV virus has been discovered in West Africa, and researchers say the recombinant virus can progress from infection to illness (AIDS) in just about five years.

BIOGRAPHY OF MICROSURGEON JOHAN VAN DONGEN

If the achievement of man is measured by truth, Johan Van Dongen would have been one of the most famous scientists or microsurgeons in the world, but because we live in a society whereby politicians drink and eat with a brood of vipers, Dongen is now an enemy.

Professor Johan Van Dongen is a Dutch microsurgeon, who found out after forty years of research that Aids and Ebola were man-made diseases or laboratory engineered as bio-weapons and tested on Africans to depopulate the continent.

This is a secret to the common man on the street but top scientists, World Health Organization, Center for Diseases Control, world leaders, politicians and countries like America, Germany, Holland, Belgium, France etc, that played a role in those medical crimes knew about it.

The Dutch Government wasn’t expecting Dongen to publish his findings as books because, for decades, it has been the task of world leaders to cover up those heinous medical crimes. Then aftermath of revealing the truth about the diseases, Dongen was dismissed as a lecturer at the University of Maastricht, Holland.

THE BIRTH AND LIFE OF JOHAN VAN DONGEN

johan-10Microsurgeon and scientist Johan Van Dongen 

Johan van Dongen was born on May 15, 1946, to a very poor family in the southern part of Rotterdam, the Netherlands, during one of the coldest days in that time of the year. His father was a salesman who deals in second-hand clothes.

After the destruction of Rotterdam during the Second World War, his father returned home from Germany after nine months. Like many sons, Johan didn’t agree with his father, because he often abused and hit his mother and all his children. Eventually, he became an alcoholic after the war.

At the age of four, Johan who couldn’t cope with the regime and domination faced many obstacles at school. Within no time after several severe incidents, the authorities threw him out of school with the message: “We will see him back at the age of six.”

At secondary school, Johan enjoyed his education due to a good female teacher teaching him. The problems started in the third grade with a new teacher. This teacher couldn’t cope with Johan’s intelligence and probing manners. Within some few months, he was dismissed from school for the second time. Yet still, he managed to pass all his exams to the next grades.

Due to the poorness of Johan’s family, the Protestant Pastor paid his family a visit and told his parents that the family had to baptize him to get rid of the poverty. So at the age of seven Johan was baptized likeJohn the Baptist baptizing Jesus, with the holy words from the pastor: “Johan is a boy with a message and vision but the only thing in his mind is food.”

Johan managed to stay at work for six months in a row, and during the strongest winter ever since, he started a new job as a bicycle boy and worked for two years in poultry shop. In 1963 – he started another work in butchery shop at the Northern Island of Rotterdam and after three years, he received his butcher’s certificate.

1964 – Skilled and experienced Johan was appointed as a chief in charge of a poultry annex butchery shop for four years at the age of seventeen. The skills at the latter place impressed his boss, who advised him to become a surgeon. At the peak of his career, something terrible happened to Johan. His father disappeared without showing up again.

Because of that event, Johan as the elder son became head of the family, taking care of
six younger brothers and a twenty-year-old physically disabled brother. Under this heavy load, Johan worked as a butcher at the poultry.

In 1969 – At the age of twenty-three Johan was appointed as a laboratory animal keeper at the Department of General Surgery in the basements of the Dijkzigt Hospital in Rotterdam, part of the Erasmus University. Because of his experience with dead animals and as a butcher he knew a lot about the anatomy of animals.

1969 – 1976 – During a period of six years Johan studied the professions of: Laboratory Animal Keeper and Animal Technology at the University of Leiden The Netherlands and graduated in 1973. From May 1972 till 1976 – Johan studied Experimental Microsurgery at the Erasmus University Rotterdam the Netherlands and graduated in May 1976.

In 1972, during a weekly laboratory meeting, Johan van Dongen heard one of his professors’ saying: “Cytomegalovirus CMV.  That dangerous virus could be a cross between flu and a herpes virus, built into a bacterium and then it looks like protozoa.”

The words of Professor Dr. D.L. Westbroek, Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Netherlands, never left Johan, because, during his forty-two years of investigation into the origin of Ebola and AIDS-causing viruses, he met the same conclusion. Johan discovered that those microorganisms were tested predominantly on black people in concentration camps and Africa.
In a monomaniac circumstance, Johan investigated the role of the medical, pharmacological and military presence of foreign countries in Africa and what they were doing in their bio-warfare plants in the African Jungle and why several outbreaks of horrific diseases took place.

Johan’s knowledge about medical crimes in Africa was a turning point in his career. He started to fight and went to court six times which lasted for five years. After his dismissal, according to the judge because of inconsistent mood, Johan decided to give his life for the cause of Africa. He  didn’t only lost his job and house but also all his money for paying his lawsuits which brought him into relative poverty.

“I am satisfied that I fought a good battle, a battle of truth. My conscience is clear and never regrets of what I went through. I feel very sorry for those who committed the crimes, covered it up and subjected me to such an ordeal. If there is God, then may God have mercy upon their souls.”

BIOGRAPHY OF WRITER AND JOURNALIST JOEL SAVAGE

Joel Savage is an African-Belgian journalist living and working in Antwerp since the year 2000. He was the first African journalist to enter into the notorious Stuivenberg Hospital in Antwerp to investigate the high abnormal death of Africans at the hospital.

It was a period Africans living in Antwerp were scared to visit the hospital because patients with a common leg injury, don’t come back alive after consultation. There was something sinister going on of which the African community believe that Africans were deliberately killed to satisfy the demand of people in the queue for an organ transplant.

What alerted Joel’s consciousness to accept the challenge of doing the investigation is, he witnessed a demonstration of Albanians on the same issue because an Albanian mysteriously lost his life at the same hospital.

The other fact is historical. King Leopold II of Belgium maimed and killed over 10 million Africans, including women and children, yet Belgium named streets after him, above all built his statue as an honor. Which person in his right mind will do such a thing when there is no statue of Adolf Hitler for killing six million Jews?

The whole world witnessed the brutal murder of Patrice Lumumba in Congo, by Belgium, the fact that they lost the country as a colony through independence. Don’t forget about the Rwanda genocide which Belgium was responsible. (You can read about this in the book called ‘The Shadow Of The Sun’ by Polish writer and journalist Ryzard Kapucinski.) With such evidence revealing that Belgium doesn’t value the life of an African, I believed the story of the Africans. Indeed, the hospital is deliberately killing Africans for body organs.

After my investigation, I published the book in Africa as ‘An African in Antwerp’ and some years later, I updated it and published it in America as ‘Little Boygium-Wonderful Experience.’ One of the directors of The City of Antwerp, called Els Bruyndonc was furious over the publication calling it stupid.

According to her, the husband is a journalist and wouldn’t publish such a stupid thing. I replied: Your husband is a journalist but not an African. Crimes committed against Africans in Antwerp are never seen in any Belgium newspapers.

Aftermath the publication, fear gripped Antwerp. They thought the African community would attack the hospital, so they quickly sent police to protect the place. They were there for over two weeks. During their presence, I disguised myself and visited the hospital thrice, to see if I can get ample information from the conversation of the workers and the police, the place was quiet.

The shocking part of the story is, even though they called my publication stupid, the high death rate suddenly fell, making Stuivenberg one of the safest hospitals for foreigners. However, there are few Africans today, as soon as you mention the hospital’s name, cold waves run through their spine. They keep away from Stuivenberg Hospital.

THE BIRTH AND LIFE OF JOEL SAVAGE

hovah 4Joel Savage: Writer

Joel Savage was born in Cape Coast, the central region of Ghana, on January 19, 1957, to Justin Savage, a veteran journalist, and television producer, and Nancy Hudson (Savage) a professional seamstress. He had his secondary school education at Ebenezer Secondary School and Accra High School. In 1985, while working in Freetown, Sierra Leone, he became a naturalized citizen, therefore losing his nationality as a Ghanaian.

His father’s influence propelled his flair for writing at a very tender age. At school, he wrote numerous articles for publication. After school, he followed a course at the Ghana Institute of Journalism to acquire more experience and writing skills. As a freelance writer, he wrote feature articles for the Daily Graphic, Ghanaian Times and The Weekly Spectator for a certain period.

He became a naturalized Belgian citizen in 2008. He is now a prolific writer and accredited press card holding member of the Vlaamse Journalisten Vereniging-Flemish Journalists Association. With his wife and three sons living in Antwerp, Joel writes regularly online. He has published seven books and working on new projects.

Joel teamed up with his best friend Johan Van Dongen to write the English version of ‘Aids and Ebola, the greatest crime in medical history against mankind.’

Aids And Ebola Medical Crimes: Africa Wants Justice

African children are example to follow

In the midst of Aids, Ebola and Lassa fever, African children are always happy

By Joel Savage and Johan Van Dongen

Illiteracy is not having the ability to read and write.  According to UNESCO, 774 million people aged 15 and older are illiterate. 52 percent live in South and West of Asia and 22 percent in sub-Saharan Africa. Even though literacy is very important and is a human right, illiteracy is one of the biggest problems in Africa today.

The impact of illiteracy in Africa is very heavy to the extent that Burkina Faso, South Sudan, Niger, Mali, Chad, Somalia, Ethiopia, Guinea, Nigeria and the Republic of Benin, are seriously affected. It is not surprised that some pastors are now claiming that Aids and Ebola are God’s curses, because of lack of reading. Some clans and tribes believe they have offended God, thus; deserve such punishment. Can you imagine how the impact of illiteracy can affect the way people think?

With such kind of thinking among the literacy and the continued dependence of African leaders on Europe and America, bringing those responsible of the medical crimes in Africa, (Belgium, Holland, Germany, France, America etc) to face justice, has been a dream of illusion to pursued. It is heart-wrenching that many years after independence swept through Africa, African leaders continue to bring their bowls on shores of Europe and America, begging for food and finance, while the continent has everything available to be used towards its development and creating jobs for the common people.

The inability to solve internal problems and financing of projects, have made African leaders a sort of puppets on strings, being pulled by Europe and America. As the proverb goes in Ghana, “If your hand is in someone’s mouth, don’t knock his head,’ African leaders can’t confront Europe and America over the crimes they have committed against the continent, because they still depend on them. That actually doesn’t make African leaders smart at all.

If Africans love to read, they will not continue to say that Aids and Ebola are curses from God, after many scientists , including Dutch Professor Johan Van Dongen have challenged Europe and America that Aids and Ebola were  engineered as bio-weapons as a means to depopulate Africa.

If African leaders have totally disappointed Africans and continued to show their incompetence, the African population, including everyone who has lost his or her loved one to Aids and Ebola,  must let Europe and America pay for their crimes. They should demand the justice they need. Yesterday were Aids and Lassa fever, today is Ebola, who knows what comes next?

Nigeria:The Corrupt Political System In Deals With Multinational Oil Companies

Delta 1Oil pilferage and environmental health hazards in Delta State of Nigeria

By Micro-surgeon and scientist Johan Van Dongen

The Nigeria Report: ‘A Cesspool of Corruption and Crime in the Niger Delta,’ isn’t difficult to find. This report is already written by Horand Knaup in ‘Der Spiegel On Line,’ speaks for itself.

After my discussion with author Fabestine Providence, the head of Fabestine Providence Nigeria Limited, I’m compelled to finding out the connection between Dutch Shell Company and the corrupt Nigerian regime.

The words of Providence on how corrupt a country can be, becomes a reality, after reading the article of Horand Knaup. Yes, the African continent houses many corrupt regimes, as writer Joel Savage and I found out about corrupt African leaders, enabling us to write many articles on this issue affecting the development of Africa.

Fabestine Providence said: “The activities of the corrupt authorities are deep than you can write about.” His words are still fresh in my mind. Frankly speaking, the corrupt nature of many African leaders is destroying Africa, including those that have collaborated with Shell company.

It is a fact that most Nigerian authorities are paid by every multinational company involved with Nigeria. They can’t act otherwise. Fabestine Providence wants someone who can write a script for a movie about Nigeria’s underworld, for the common suffering Nigerians to understand how the underworld operates and get finances from lots of sources in the country.

This information may be kept by the Nigerian government as confidential, but it is already in the virtual clouds because the leaked US diplomatic cables revealed just what multinational oil companies are up against in the Niger Delta. Security forces are ineffective, involved in dubious oil deals and the government demands millions in bribes.

Even university students have earned pocket money by working as kidnappers because the kidnap industry employs students during university vacations.

Bombs are used against civilians and millions paid to corrupt officials. The US diplomatic cables from the Nigerian cities of Abuja and Lagos, paint an unusual bleak picture of the situation in the oil-rich Niger Delta.

Hardly any of the international oil companies active in the delta publishes production figures, kidnappings and hostage-taking, yet these are a daily occurrence issue, while the civilian population is suffering, even though they have got nothing to do with the government’s corrupt schemes.

The central government in Abuja has neglected the delta for decades. It has failed to build schools, hospitals and roads and has simply ignored the serious environmental problems. All that mattered was that the oil kept flowing, and continued to produce kickbacks for the political elite.

“The Federal Government has not funded one road in the key Niger Delta States in the last ten years,” reads one of the cable massages in February 2009, from the US Consulate in Lagos, citing a high-ranking politician which could be Babatunbe Fashola. In the face of such neglect, organized crime has become rampant in the delta.

There are kidnappers who are in bed with the authorities and special military units that sometimes fight rebels in the delta and frequently have a stake in the oil business. The rebels, although staged attacks on the multinational oil companies, they also sell oil and enjoy police protection. The political elite thrives on the chaotic situation.

Students don’t only involved in kidnap but attack oil platforms, but also guard hostages. The same rebel oil traders managed to get Fabestine Providence out of the country. Even inside the Black Axe Movement is corruption. The students earn $1,071 for a three-month period vacation.

However, with the Joint Task Force, an army unit pressing them, the job is no longer glamorous but dangerous. Companies that drill oil in Nigeria need to have strong nerves. It is hard to obtain reliable information and rumours circulate wildly. Do the rebels who are targeting the multinationals’ production efforts, really have anti-aircraft missiles to shoot down companies’ helicopters, as one message describes? Is the Russian energy giant ‘Gazprom’ planning to get into the natural gas business in the country? Another important question is which investors might be participating in a gas pipeline across the Sahara to Algeria?

The 4,000-kilometer pipeline to the Mediterranean coast would likely cost at least €10 billion. According to one cable, the multinationals ‘Total and Gazprom’ are interested in the project. The head of Exxon Mobil in Nigeria, however, dismissed the pipeline project as “fantasy,” that would never become a reality because the pipeline is too expensive and politically too risky. Above all, it would not benefit Nigeria and of course, it will not be surprised that the Dutch Shell Group is involved in corruption.

There are bitter complaints coming from Western oil companies. At a meeting with the US – Africa envoy, Johnnie Carson, oil executives criticized the “amateur technocrats” who are in charge of the oil and gas business on the Nigerian side. The managers said that Nigerian politicians believe that deep-sea drilling would earn them no money. Partners from banks and the business world did not understand the business, they said. The government in Abuja had collected $2.5 billion dollars in revenue over the previous two years but had not made any investments in return.

At another meeting, an Exxon Mobil manager reported that companies had to calculate for a loss of around 40% for oil transport via overland pipelines in the country; a result of oil theft. ‘It was more efficient to import refined oil from Europe than to process it in Nigeria itself’, he said. The police charged with protecting the pipelines seemed primarily concerned with coordinating the pilfering and letting potential thieves know where they could steal the oil.

One dispatch from Washington reads: “Nigeria’s four state-owned refineries have an installed capacity of 445,000 barrels per day. They have a history of fire, sabotage, poor management, lack of turn-around maintenance and corruption. These elements have limited refinery output to 40 percent of capacity or less.”

In January 2009, one oil executive complained that the already bad situation had gotten worse. Widespread attacks by pirates had led to tanker shipping companies only accepting contracts under certain conditions. Nigerian government officials apparently responded by telling her: “Hire more security.”

What about the Israeli Involvement? Another oil company protested that high-ranking Nigerians demanded millions in bribes for rights to load tankers. In addition, a top Nigerian prosecutor told a visitor that; “He would sign a document only if the visitor paid $2 million immediately and another $18 million the next day.”

The Nigerian government finds deals involved with multinational companies unique in the oil industry. A report dated March 2009 states that: “Shell and Total recently revealed that they were forced to loan their Nigerian partners billions of dollars, below-market rates to support ongoing joint venture operations.”

Delta 2Oil spill in the Delta State of Nigeria and the threat of  environmental health hazards

US diplomats also referred to a complaint from one the oil multinational companies, about the Nigerian Navy, which the complaint said, was totally incapable of protecting oil companies in the delta. When rebels attacked an oil platform in the Gulf of Guinea with a total of six-speed boats, Shell employees sounded the alarm at 2:30 a.m. It was only at 7:30 p.m, after the attackers had long disappeared that naval boats arrived and their primary aim was to obtain supplies of fuel and food from the platform.

Here and there, however, improvements have been reported. Israeli security experts in the Nigerian state of Bayelsa were now going to keep the kidnapper gangs at bay. One dispatch reads: In fact, US diplomats write, the Israelis are remarkably active in the Niger Delta. The Israeli military provides equipment and training to the Nigerian special unit that fights rebels in the delta. Back in October 2007, the unit lacked functioning helicopters and armored troop carriers and only had two gunboats.

Now it has more than hundred vehicles, around two dozen boats and two helicopters at its disposal.There is apparently one small problem, some members of the unit are deeply involved in dubious oil deals. Thanks to Horand Knaup, for all this information, even though it is now known publicly.

I feel more pain and helpless over the situation of Fabestine Providence, as an asylum seeker in the Netherlands, but the Dutch government wouldn’t like to keep him in the country, despite knowing the roots of his problem, since they are part of the corruption and environmental hazard in the Delta of Nigeria.

 

Fresh Outbreak Of Ebola In Guinea

NEW EBOLA

Health workers are rushing to the site of a fresh Ebola outbreak in Guinea to bolster efforts to contain the virus and prepare for the likelihood of more cases, aid agencies said on Friday.

Four people in the southern region of Nzerekore were tested on Thursday and two of them were found to have Ebola. They were all from Korokpara, a village where three people from the same family have died in recent weeks from diarrhea and vomiting.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) and aid agencies have sent experts to investigate the origin of the new cases and to identify, isolate, vaccinate and monitor all of their contacts.

The Alliance for International Medical Action (ALIMA) has reopened its Ebola treatment unit in Nzerekore, while the United Nations children’s agency (UNICEF) is reinforcing its team in the region and providing protective equipment and medicine.

“There has been a very professional and experienced response across the board,” said Augustin Augier of ALIMA, which admitted the two patients, a child and his mother, to its treatment unit.

“We are doing all we can to be ready to receive more cases,” he said, adding that ALIMA were flying in more staff from Paris.

More than 28,500 people have been infected and 11,300 have died since the world’s worst recorded Ebola epidemic began in December 2013 – mostly in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.

While the epidemic has come under control, experts have warned of the risk of new flare-ups, as Ebola can linger in the eyes, central nervous system and bodily fluids of survivors.

The two fresh cases in Nzerekore, where the Ebola outbreak began in 2013, were reported just hours after the WHO declared neighboring Sierra Leone’s latest flare-up over.

Guinea had been nearing the end of a 90-day period of heightened surveillance when the fresh cases were reported – the country’s first known re-emergence of Ebola after the outbreak was officially declared over there at the end of December 2015.

“The heightened surveillance means mechanisms were in place and that we were vigilant and prepared to deal with the flare-up,” said Guy Yogo, UNICEF’s deputy representative in Guinea.

“The population is now aware of the disease and listening to the guidance it receives from the authorities,” Yogo added.

It was not immediately clear how the villagers from Korokpara had contracted Ebola but the area had resisted efforts to fight the disease in the initial epidemic.

HOW EBOLA KILLS 

The question the world needs an answer: If Aids and Ebola are not bio-weapons against Africa, why the disease keeps emerging after the World Health Organization and Center for Diseases Control declared Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone Ebola free countries?

“You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.” – Abraham Lincoln.

The Spectrum Of Business In Africa Through E-Commerce

Commerce 3

Small scale and large scale entrepreneurs have taken the advantage of the effectiveness of the media and technology, including e-commerce to promote and market products, reaching every corner of the globe without fatigue. What is e-commerce and how has it been beneficial to entrepreneurs?

Assuming you live in Asia, Europe or America, would you like to travel thousands of kilometers for a product you want desperately in South Africa? Taking such a journey is not only waste of time but also money. Remember time is money. Through the birth of modern technology, e-commerce acts as a facilitator in getting your message to the manufacturer to send the consumer whatever he is looking for online.

Thus; E-commerce is online shopping making it easier for consumers to purchase products via the internet from manufacturers. E-commence enhances business to reach beyond consumer base and access global markets like never before. Last year, November 18, delegates at the ‘Sixth Annual European Conference highlighted on the effect and impact of in E-commerce generally in Europe.

The European E-Commerce sector is said to worth an estimated 350 billion Euros and it is predicted to create 1.5 million jobs in Europe by 2018.  The writer takes a look at the impact and benefit of e-commerce in Africa’s business. The effect of E-commerce business in the African continent is enormous, changing the face of the traditional consumer.

Internet trade has made it easier for African entrepreneurs to search for quality products online, compare prices and purchased products. According to research by Google South Africa, there was an increase of 49% in query volumes in Nigeria, 37% in South Africa and 33% in Kenya, during 2014.  E-commerce hasn’t been beneficial only to African entrepreneurs, consumers and manufacturers, but also attracted widely investment opportunities alike.

Some of the African countries with booming E-commerce markets, transforming the economic landscape are Senegal, Morocco, Mozambique, Ghana, South Africa, Nigeria, Egypt, Tanzania, Cameroun, and Kenya. At the epicenter of Africa’s thriving economy and business, E-commerce has driven hundreds of businessmen to success, in different fields, especially the mobile telephone industry.   In the year 2010 alone, the Ghanaian government made GHC598 million in taxes and levies, representing 10% of government income for that year.

The secret to every successful business depends on the variety and quality of the products. E-commerce holds a ray of hope for African entrepreneurs and small scale business. It seems after gaining the political independence; Africa folded its arms, waiting for a miracle to come from heaven. God helps those who help themselves, now Africa is gradually emerging from the realms of poverty through the eye of E-commerce.

Belgium: Jef Merckx, Bamboo Bicycle Already Manufactured In Ghana Before You

ghana

History remains incomplete, because certain facts about Africa, have been swept under the carpet by Europeans, just to hide the truth and portray Africa as ignorant.

Is it true that apart from the looting of Africa’s rich mineral resources, including gold, diamond, Copper, Bauxite etc; the Europeans stole ideas from Africa to develop Europe, while they underdeveloped Africa?

In today’s (3/17/2016) Gazet Van Antwerpen, one of Belgium’s newspapers, was an article about Jef Merckx, introducing a Bamboo bicycle in Belgium. According to Merckx, Bamboo bicycle is lighter, faster and ecology, with the photo of him and the Bamboo Bicycle he has manufactured.

After reading the entire article, there wasn’t any indication anywhere in the article that Bamboo bicycle is long manufactured in Ghana, by a woman called Winifred Selby, who started her production at the age of 15. It is likely that Ghana is the first country in the world to manufacture Bamboo bicycle.

Like Always, Belgium has denied Ghana-Africa’s intelligence and knowledge and given the credit to someone who has stolen an idea from Africa, above all from a woman. What a shame?

There are many reasons journalism is said to lose its credibility. Gazet Van Antwerpen’s publication giving credit to Jef Merckx, as the manufacturer of Bamboo bicycle is one of them. Without investigation, they just published the stolen idea and knowledge from Africa. This is a mockery to the entire Belgian media. I told you so, and I will always tell you.

I DON’T EVEN WANT TO PUBLISH JEF MERCKX’s PICTURE ON MY BLOG, BECAUSE HE DOESN’T DESERVE IT.

Below is an article I published last year about Miss Winifred Selby.
