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.

Africa In The Hands Of China After Colonialism

Mugabe 3

Robert Mugabe shakes hands with Chinese president, Xi Jinping.  

Like the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989, distinguishing the flames of communism, colonialism and Apartheid also faded after the Europeans lost its grip on Africa, when demanding of political independence swept through Africa colony in the fifties.

Even though Africa is much underestimated, the continent’s rich mineral resources always attract both developing and developed countries. China is now actively engaged in Africa, but under heavy criticism, because the West and America see them as opportunists interested in Africa’s resources.

Nearly 600 years ago, the first Chinese reached Africa during the Ming dynasty, a period of cultural restoration and expansion, on the coast of Kenya. The next significant arrival was in the early 1900s, when about 60,000 Chinese miners worked on goldfields in South Africa. Later, Chairman Mao Zedong sent tens of thousands of agricultural and construction workers to Africa to enhance ties with countries emerging from colonialism.

Africa, taken as a continent of ignorance, attract Europeans and Asians, because many believe that without enough education, Africa is a place one can easily sets up a business and be a boss. Weak economy, influenced by rampant corruption, has allowed African leaders quickly welcoming Chinese business entrepreneurs to Africa. The Chinese have taken over the construction works in Africa, employing hundreds of Chinese and African nationals, becoming the most aggressive investor-nation in Africa.

Although China is playing a significant role in the construction and engineering sectors in Africa, not everything that glitters is gold. Chinese companies are cutting into Africa’s profits. Most African companies are losing jobs to the Chinese companies, because a lot of the African leaders have confidence in them and also they offer lower construction prices. Nevertheless; trade between China and Africa reached a new high last year, totaling US$198.5 billion. It is estimated that about 1 million Chinese people are engaged to different sectors in Africa.

The strong presence of Chinese in Africa, has sparked controversy, as America and Europe continue to accuse them of flooding the market with inferior or cheap quality products. Due to the rate of poverty, Africans rely on affordably products. It seems they have found solution and satisfaction in Chinese products. To build a good relationship with African leaders China continues to support and giving loan to Africa to enhance its developments.

In Ghana, crackdown on illegal miners exploiting the gold industry, led to the deportation of thousands of Chinese nationals from the country. The Immigration authorities say more than 4,500 Chinese nationals were repatriated after a series of swoops on illegal goldmines; souring the relationship between the governments of Ghana and China.

Many Ghanaians and local residents aren’t happy over the action of the Ghanaian government. “They were the ones that provided the mining equipment, most of the Ghanaians left behind can’t continue their operations,” said one of the local residents, but many Ghanaians concerned about health and environmental hazards, lauded the government’s efforts to curb illegal mining.

The question is: Why years after colonialism Africa still depend on foreign aid, despite economic growth in many parts of the continent significantly outpacing the global average?’ How is the money spent and how can Africa progress without foreign aid? What is the significance of independence when Africa is still crawling like a baby learning how to move around?

Science and technology provide the transformation of every developing and developed country, in this way, Africa have to build expertise in these areas for the economy to take off, but since corruption has affected every infrastructure, the continent has a long way to go and will always lack behind in development.

“Let Europe Keep Their Homosexual Nonsense There And Live With It”- Robert Mugabe

GAYS 8Is that what Europe and America want to teach Africa, when the continent hasn’t yet find solutions to its Aids, malaria, Ebola and other deadly diseases?

“Let Europe keep their homosexual nonsense there and live with it. We will never have it here.” This is a statement the Zimbabwean leader, Robert Mugabe made during a speech in July 2013.

Mugabe has reacted again  “I’ve just concluded, since President Obama endorses the same-sex marriage, advocates homosexual people and enjoys an attractive countenance – thus, if it becomes necessary, I shall travel to Washington, DC, get down on my knee and ask his hand, mocking the US Supreme Court’s decision.

Selfishness, greed, power and media’s hypocrisy, prevent people to understand Robert Mugabe. Africa is the least respected continent in the world, but when it comes to things the continent isn’t interested, why do world leaders and the stupid media fail to understand?

Homosexuality, is regarded as an abominable act in Africa. But this social vice which is less popular in the continent, is now becoming famous in many African countries, turning the countries into an unnerving place to live in, because church leaders and many organisations against this practice, wouldn’t like to embrace this type of culture to add to their own culture.

At times, I do ask my self over and over, do Europeans and Americans think Africa will accept what ever they are interested? Africa has nothing to do with Christianity, before the white missionaries ever went there. They thought Africans to follow the Bible teachings. Well, later the truth was discovered. The reason was not to let Africans know about Christ but to loot.

Fortunately, many parts of Africa, derived interest in the Bible and studied it thoroughly, therefore living by its teachings. An African Christian, explaining his point to defend his hate against homosexuality, would take one deep step into the Bible, to give you a reference. Two of such scriptures confirming that homosexuality is an evil act, can be read at  1st Timothy, chapter 10 and 1st Corinthians, chapter 6, verse 9.

Women 4They called it same sex marriage in Europe and America, but Africans are not used to this.

The question is: “Why are Europeans and other Gay Rights Organizations, now fighting for the practice of homosexuality to be recognized in Africa, when they have already been there with the Holy Bible, a book telling Christians how evil the practice of homosexuality is?” The teachings of the Holy Bible can’t be reversed, so I am afraid to say that Africa can never change its mind or opinion on the negative aspects of homosexuality.

Africa is already overwhelmed by many diseases, such as AIDS, Ebola and malaria, therefore it makes sense when they don’t want that practice. Europeans,  Americans and some organisations, are the first people that voices are heard, when ever there is any bad situation in Africa. But when ever there is an epidemic, the respond to contain the situation never comes or very slow.

Africa has learned a lot from their misfortunes, that is the reason it is fighting against homosexuality today. Unfortunately, the path Uganda has taken to deal with this issue is totally out of course. The proposal for death penalty for homosexuals is sheer madness. Violence against homosexuals is not an option or solution.

Why did Obama chose to endorse same-sex marriage through out America at the last moments in his office? That’s what is called ‘Politricks.’ He wants votes for his party, because to them, power matters, not restoration of the decayed society.

Could Africa Be The Toughest Continent In The World?

LIES 3Told over and over again are also called the media.

Journalism is the activity of news gathering, assessing, creating, and presenting the information to the general public. That’s the simplest way I can define this profession. But there is more involved in this profession. They are dishonesty, hypocrisy and blatant lies, which have caused lost of trust of viewers and readers.

The European and American media will let you understand that Africa is the most dangerous continent in the world, yet violence and the high rate of  crime in America exceed the crime rate in Africa. How many Africans keep pistol or guns in their homes, like Americans? Africa needs an answer.

The Western and America media will let you understand that Africa is a continent that lacks education, affected by corruption, poverty and plagued by diseases, such as malaria, Ebola, Aids, Lassa fever and other deadly diseases. But the teenage pregnancy threatening Europe, especially Britain alone, is overwhelming. Thus, if lack of education is one of the causes of teenage pregnancy, then are African teenagers more intelligent than British teenagers?

SLAVERY AND MEDICAL CRIMES

Throughout Europe and America, the only definition a child knows about Africa is: ‘A poor continent.’ But for ages, there is no European and American journalist intelligent enough to ask: How are we going to cope up, handle or survive, if the calamities which had fallen on Africa in the past and present fall on us? In this way we need to learn from Africa how we can survive in times of adversity. Americans were scared to death when a Liberian was diagnosed with Ebola on American soil, while Africa is painstakingly dealing with this medical crime in West Africa with courage.

The Africa continent has suffered slavery and all kinds of terrorism and persecutions during the colonial era, shaping the pattern of  lives of its citizens, both psychologically and physically, making Africans one of the strongest and toughest creatures living on the planet today. On National Geography are documentary films showing how to survive when lost in the desert and mountains, but Africans already live on the desert and in mountains.

In some villages in Africa, many haven’t seen electricity before, yet they are happy and each day, they follow their normal activities. Which European or American can live a normal life without electricity in his or her entire life? Endurance, pain and experience have structured the African continent in a way that they could stand the hardest conditions. This is the reason Africa is still standing on its feet despite every evil thing they’ve experienced in the hands of Europeans and Americans.

Europe and America knew long time ago, the incredible strength of Africa, but they are scared and find it embarrassing and a sort of disgrace to learn how Africans survive on that harsh continent. Instead they planned to cause confusion, depopulate and destroy the continent to make its citizens unhealthy.

SUICIDE RATE IN EUROPE AND AMERICA

Despite all the problems that Africans face daily, only few commit suicide. This should be something to inspire Europe and America to find out: How and why only few people take their lives in Africa, so that we could learn something from them? Europe and America politicians and the media will never do that, instead they always try to find a way to inflict pain and destruction against Africans.

Below is the ‘World Suicide Rate’ per country published by The Washington Post. 

Suicide rates per 100,000 people
Austria 13.8
Belgium 18.4
Britain 6
Canada 10.2
Czech Republic 12.7
Denmark 11.3
Finland 16.5
France 14.6
Germany 10.3
Greece 2.9
Hungary 21.0
Iceland 10.4
Italy 5.5
Japan 19.4
Luxembourg 9.5
Mexico 4.4
Netherlands 7.9
New Zealand 11.9
Norway 10.9
Poland 13.8
Portugal 8.7
Slovak Republic 10.9
South Korea 24.7
Spain 6.3
Sweden 11.1
United States 10.1
 Notes: Data is for 2005.
Readers you can see that there is no African country mentioned in this suicide list. It is time for the European and America media to respect Africa, and stop underestimating the continent. Africa may not have powerful weapons and ammunition like Europe and America, Africa may be poorer than Europe and America, Africa may have weak and fragile health-care systems, yet Africans are hundred percent physically and psychologically strong than Europeans and Americans. The world should know this, because the bias European and American media won’t tell you.

“I’m Not Afraid To Die: Save The World Or Perish In It”-Joel Savage

Malcolm 3

The destroying of our environment, the violence erupting daily in our society, the domestic violence robbing the peace of women, the constant rape of women around the world, the killing of innocent people with biological processed diseases etc, aren’t issues of concern to many people, because they don’t care.

A victim of terrorist attack, tsunami, violence, Aids, Ebola,Ziga virus etc, has a story to tell you more than one who hasn’t experienced anything. I am an African, from a continent that has suffered all kinds of aggression, persecution, invasion, looting, diseases, depopulation and biological terrorism, in the hands of Europe and America. How do you expect me to react?

Whatever happens to an African, isn’t an issue of concern to many Europeans and Americans. Aids, Ebola, Lassa fever, Zika virus etc, were laboratory manufactured or man-made diseases by Europe and America and inflicted on Africans and Latin-Americans as bio-weapons. The media has covered up the crime in favour of those responsible for the medical crimes, yet their voices are heard anytime terrorism hits Europe or America.

Genetically modified mosquitoes are spreading Zika virus,yet the media and the American government want people to understand it’s just a normal disease. What kind of a normal mosquito that when it bites, your head shrinks? Why is America causing suffering to others? Why can’t they test the disease they invent on their own people, but they choose the poor and the underprivileged? Is that the true meaning of super-power or democracy? What kind of God America claims in him they trust?

No one cares about Africa, but I do, because that’s where I was born. If the leaders are corrupt and can’t do anything about the using of Africans as Guinea pigs for drugs testing, I will speak out, because I’m not afraid to die. If Africans and Africans in the Diaspora fear to die, then they should by the books about Malcolm X, Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr, to read and learn something about them.

If those black leaders: Steve Biko, Kwame Nkrumah, Marcus Garvey, Nelson Mandela etc, were coward and fear to die, African-Americans or black people wouldn’t have reached this far. The reason I’m not afraid to die, because I am imitating them. You need to be sincere, honest or faithful person, before you can understand me, but I am not going to beg anyone to understand me, because such qualities are hard to find in people.

Many do ask me if I’m not afraid to speak against people: What a stupid question? It’s because of fear Africans can’t move forward or progress. Many don’t even have the ambition to try something in life to be successful or fail. It’s because of fear the White man leads the Black in everything today, but not because the Black man is stupid.

It’s because of fear Europe and America treat Africa bad. It’s because of fear instead of African leaders to confront Europe and America over those medical crimes, they polish the White man’s shoes to get gifts into their pockets. It’s because of fear, many Africans claim Aids and Ebola are curses from God. It’s because fear an African can’t scream or react if a White man is maltreating him.

It’s because of fear and love of  money, many Africans are pastors, yet their deeds don’t show that they are servant of God. It’s because of fear, the statue of Leopold, a king who killed over ten million Africans, including women and children, still stands in Brussels, when there is no statue of Adolf Hitler, yet there is a Black politician in Belgium. What’s his significance?

Fear, is an enemy that kills the coward million times before his real death. I want to die just once, when my time comes, so I don’t have any room in my life for fear to occupy.

Why America Killed Ghaddafi And Saddam Hussein?

SaddamFormer Iraqi and Libyan leaders: Saddam Hussein and Muammar Ghaddafi

By Joel Savage and Johan Van Dongen

Everyone fears something in this world. Many white people claim blacks are criminals, the reason they fear them. That’s not true, after all there are also White criminals. In Belgium for the past fifteen years, I quickly realized Belgians try to keep away from Black people, not because they are criminals, but scared that the Black man will let them pay for the horrible crimes they committed against them in Africa.

Africa is a big continent with diverse people and languages. Even though they lack powerful and sophisticated weapons to defend themselves in time of war, in terms of its size, Europe and America fear the African continent more than anything on earth. Even in Europe, many Europeans fear the presence of black people, especially when speaking a language they don’t understand.

Africans were living in that remote deadly continent for ages, before the first White missionaries ever set their feet and the vaccine for malaria was found. After many Europeans died of malaria, hence the ‘The White Man’s Grave’ was given as Africa’s second name. Their next goal was to find out how Africans were able to survive on that harsh tough continent.

Europeans were not happy over the way Africans were stronger than them. Instead of learning how they survive on that harsh continent, they decided to invade it, loot the continent, capture the people into slavery and depopulate it with deadly diseases including Aids, Ebola, Lassa fever, Ziga virus and other deadly diseases.

That wasn’t enough for Europe and America. They made sure to kill every powerful African leader that poses a threat to them. In South Africa Steve Biko was brutally murdered. After Kwame Nkrumah survived coup attempts, including the Kulungugu bomb in the Northern region of Ghana, in another coup orchestrated by the CIA, Nkrumah was overthrown-ed and died in exile. Another powerful African leader is off the list of America.

Libyan leader Muammar Ghaddafi

The next powerful African head of state Europe and America targeted was Patrice Lumumba of Congo. Belgium couldn’t stand the pain, when the country attained its independence, despite all the riches stolen from the country. In a coup master-minded by Europe and America, Lumumba was brutally murdered by Belgium. Belgium has since apologized for this horrible crime they committed, but Africans can forgive but they can’t forget.

After those two powerful great African leaders, no African head of state posed a threat to Europe and America, more than Libyan leader Muammar Ghaddafi. The oil rich country leader was strong, stubborn and had no respect for America and Europe. He usually called them ‘Dogs, uncircumcised or infidels.’

The hatred of Ghaddafi towards Europe and America was so intense that he started to wage war of terror and sponsoring terrorism against them. Ronald Reagan knew the only way calm down Ghaddafi was to be assassinated. Under operation code-named ‘Operation El Dorado Canyon, United States attacked Libya on Tuesday, 15 April 1986. The attack was carried out by the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps via air strikes, in response to the 1986 in Berlin discotheque bombing.

There were 40 reported Libyan casualties, and one US plane was shot down, resulting in the death of two airmen, but Ghaddafi survived the attack. Ghaddafi denied terrorism actions against Europe and America, but he couldn’t continue denying over his involvement in the bombing of flight Pan Am 103 which killed 270 passengers, crew and townspeople over and in the Scottish town of Lockerbie in December 1988, because two Libyans were identified as official suspects.

Even though Libya compensated the victims of the Lockerbie bombing by handing $1.5bn to the families of those killed on the Pan Am flight, his presence as a powerful leader in Africa , gave Europe and America sleepless nights. Whatever events which led to the capture and assassination of the leader on October 20, 2011, leading to his death, were plans orchestrated by Europe and America. Now that Libya is in ruins and powerless, Europe and America can now sleep very well. Why should the mouse get worried when the cat is trapped high on the tree?
                   Saddam Hussein: The Iraqi leader with iron fist
Saddam Hussein believed to be a successful leader, the needs to be ruthless, merciless, wicked and unfriendly with Europe and America are necessary. In fact, he was one of the evil men in political history followed by Idi Amin of Uganda. Holding on to power for 30 years, Saddam launched two attacks on the neighboring states of Iran and Kuwait.
                   Was Saddam once America’s best friend? The United States once supported Saddam, in curbing the export of a radical theocratic revolution, cooperated with the Iraqi government by supplying Saddam with economic assistance, weapon sales, the assistance of the US naval battle group, and satellite and other intelligence information in regard to the placement of Iranian troops.

This favour came back haunting America. It was no surprise that President Bush used the excuse that Saddam was habouring weapons of mass destruction to invade the country. “The dictator who is assembling the world’s most dangerous weapons has already used them on whole villages, leaving thousands of his own citizens dead, blind or disfigured,” said George Bush.

The accusation that Iraq has used chemical weapons against its citizens is a familiar part of the debate. The piece of hard evidence most frequently brought up concerns the gassing of Iraqi Kurds at the town of Halabja in March 1988, near the end of the eight-year Iran-Iraq war. President Bush himself has cited Iraq’s “gassing its own people,” specifically at Halabja, as a reason to topple Saddam Hussein.

But the truth is, all we know for certain is that Kurds were bombarded with poison gas that day at Halabja. We cannot say with any certainty that Iraqi chemical weapons killed the Kurds. This is not the only distortion in the Halabja story.

Saddam Hussein was eventually toppled and executed, but no weapons of mass destruction were found in Iraq, making George Bush one of the greatest liars in America’s political history. Everything is completely wrong in America yesterday and today, as they keep on showing their prowess through the destruction of other people.

Why America is now using Genetically Modified Mosquitoes Spreading Zika Virus As Bio-warfare?

It will be recalled that on September 18, 2014, Guinean government officials visited the village of Womme in the country’s southeast, they planned to educate people about Ebola and show them how to avoid it — in a region where many still believe the virus doesn’t exist. But it all went disastrously wrong. Villagers responded furiously, pelting the delegation with stones and beating the visitors with clubs, according to Guinean radio.

The delegation, which included doctors and journalists, fled into the bush after the attack Tuesday. The Guinean government said Thursday that eight delegation members had been killed, including several journalists, news agencies reported. There also were reports that 21 people had been injured.

“It’s very sad and hard to believe, but they were killed in cold blood by the villagers,” government spokesman Albert Damantang Camara said, according to Agence France-Presse. A local police officer, Richard Haba, said the villagers believed that Ebola “is nothing more than an invention of white people to kill black people.”

EUROPE AND AMERICA ARE NOW AWARE THAT AFRICANS KNOW AIDS, EBOLA AND LASSA FEVER ETC; WERE MEDICAL CRIMES AGAINST THE CONTINENT

Since after this deadly incidence in Guinea, Europe and America are very cautious and aren’t prepared to lose any of their nationals from the health sector on African soil, so they planned a new strategy to inflict pain and destruction by testing the created bio-weapons on poor people, hence the genetically modified mosquitoes now spreading Zika virus through out Latin-America.

Yes! America want to prove that if the medical crime can’t be done by touching down in countries or where ever they wanted, it can be done as bio-weapon through the air, but let us just wait and see, because what’s coming tomorrow is hidden from the wise and the prudent.

African Politics Is Like A Man Answering Nature’s Call Without Toilet Paper

MerkelGerman’s Angela Merkel and Ghana’s Nana Akofo-Addo: Do African politicians know how European and American politicians underestimate them?

Have you ever been to the toilet and after easing yourself you found out that you have no toilet paper in the roll set? The lost hope, uncertainty, and hopelessness, not knowing exactly what to do, is exactly the situation of Africans under corrupt and greedy politicians in Africa.

My heart aches when I see Africans queuing in those hot temperatures to cast their votes for corrupt, greedy and useless politicians. For a very long time, Africa has been a caricature, a puppet and a laughing stock in the eyes of Europeans. You will know the disrespect Europeans and Americans give to Africa when you live in Europe, you will never know that when you live in Africa.

Africans are considered sub-human beings or the least important people on this planet. The reason  Europeans invaded the continent. After decades of slavery, suffering, and colonization, African leaders are still considered stupid by Europe and America, because they still repeat the same mistakes they did.

How many countries make Africa? If out of all the head of states in Africa, only South Africa’s Thabo Mbeki; Nelson Mandela and Zimbabwe’s Robert Mugabe, are the only presidents to tell Europe and America that Aids and Ebola are medical crimes against Africa, what are the rest of African head of states doing or saying?

There is no continent which has suffered more than Africa, yet African leaders don’t take the suffering masses into consideration to improve the standard of living because all that they are interested is to steal from the government coffers to Switzerland.

Let’s assume Africans can’t read, so we don’t know that Aids and Ebola are medical crimes, but help has come close to us when a European scientist, Johan Van Dongen, after four decades of research revealed the diseases weren’ natural. They were manufactured in the laboratory for bio-warfare purpose and tested on Africans, yet African leaders still haven’t reacted. Is that stupidity or intelligence.

Professor Johan Van Dongen could have remained silence like other scientists, after discovering that Aids and Ebola were medical crimes against Africa, but because of the love he has for the continent, he published his findings, which cost him dearly. He lost his job as a university lecturer because the government(Holland) was angry with him. How would the world view African leaders? Stupid or intelligent?

African leaders attend conferences and seminars overseas. They feel so fortunate and happy to take pictures with advanced countries leaders, but they don’t feel that way. They feel they are standing with morons, incompetent and corrupt politicians, that years after colonization can’t help fellow Africans or develop their countries.

In Ghana, there is a proverb which says, “If one washes his hands well, he will end up eating with the king on the same dining table.” If African leaders want to be respected by the outside world, they should show a little intelligence and patriotism, because they have disappointed Africans for too long.
