What Is The Significance Of An African Politician In Belgium?

 

I don't think any African wants the help of Mr. Collins Nweke because he can't help himself

What is the significance of a black politician in Belgium when the country has a statue of a king that killed over 10 million Africans, including women and children? It’s a disgrace.

In a country like Belgium, that committed so much crime in Africa, both physically and medically in the colonial era, under the administration of the murderer King Leopold II, having a Black or an African politician in Belgium, should have given Africans in Belgium, a sigh of relief. Because all eyes are on him to make things easier and better for Africans living in Belgium.

Joel Savage playing the role of the African politician

Just like Africa, many Africans disappear when it comes to money matter in Europe. In this way, to fulfill financial obligations to ease the pain and suffering of many Africans, especially illegal immigrants, we rented an office, filled it with office equipment for the Africans to learn the language, while many come there to use the office equipment. With the dues from the members, we contributed regularly to see the office running. We continued doing this for two years, until financial mismanagement by one of the leaders running the center, led to permanent closing doors of the office.

All those tough and hard times, we were aware that there was an African politician in Belgium, but our efforts didn’t mean anything to him, until I joined the ‘Sierra Leone Welfare Association in Antwerp-SLAWA, to continue the help. Like before, I assisted many Sierra Leoneans with diverse problems, both materially and financially.

I wasn’t surprised when in 2005, on the behalf the Sierra Leone association, I was awarded ‘Certificate Of Merit’ by Mr. Abdul Kargbo, who was then the Chairman, for the selfless services I offered to SLAWA. Where was the African politician in Belgium then? He should have been the one to receive that certificate, not me.

The African politician in Belgium is not among those putting pressure on the Belgian government to pull down the statue of the butcher of Congo, Leopold II

Many African leaders, especially those from Congo are putting pressure on the Belgian government, to pull down the statue of Leopold. They also want Streets named after him changed because that man was a criminal, rapist and murderer. He doesn’t deserve such recognition in this modern times, after killing over 10 million Africans, including children.

If there is no statue of Adolf Hitler, because he killed 6 million Jews, then there shouldn’t be any statue of the criminal Leopold. I have written many articles about this issue and have requested African-Americans athletes and musicians to stop performing or participating in events in Belgium if they respect themselves. Believe me, I haven’t seen any article or heard the voice of the African politician in Belgium over this issue, like other leaders.

Investigating the high death rate of Africans at the notorious Stuivenberg Hospital in Antwerp

The African politician was still in Belgium, when the African community in Antwerp, who were scared to visit the Stuivenberg Hospital, call on me to find out the reason any African that goes to the hospital with a common leg injury, doesn’t come back alive. I investigated and found out that they were killing Africans for body organs.

After the publication of the book over this crime, Stuivenberg Hospital now remains one of the safest hospitals in Antwerp. Being an African, no media ever published this story, but the authorities know I published the truth, else Stuivenberg Hospital wouldn’t be as it is today.

African politician in Belgium clears his voice

Apart from reading his profile on social media, I haven’t really taken the trouble to know what the African politician does in Belgium because I am expecting him to know how Africans in Belgium, including Antwerp, are doing. Then couple of months ago, after writing an article captioned

‘Why Many Africans Are ‘Allergic’ To Reading?’

https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/why-many-africans-allergic-reading-joel-savage?trk=mp-reader-card

The African politician in Belgium, thought its the right time for Africans, Africans in the Diaspora, including those in Belgium, to feel his presence. As soon as the article was published, he came out with this:

“I sincerely have my doubts that Joel Savage has been reading balanced materials judging by the sort of one-sided views he expresses. I see a resolve in his writings to dangerously reinforce stereotypes and disrespect Africans in general, including himself. I suggest Joel Savage embarks on that self-abuse all by himself and show Africans some respect, please!”

Joel Savage’s remarks:

Thanks, Mr. Collins Nweke. I am very happy that this discussion has forced you to join. It’s necessary to let you that I don’t write articles with my own imagination. I make research before making a post.There are hundreds of similar articles online or the internet, the reason many foreign organizations, including non-profit organizations, helping African children to cultivate the desire to read, by supplying books. You suppose to know this better than me. 

I am neither the first nor the last writer who have written such article, so why are you against me alone? The great African-American writer late Maya Angelou, stood firmly and challenged those that wrote, “If you want to hide anything from a black man write it in a book.” So I think this is the right time to challenge those who have written similar articles years ago, before coming to me. You might be pleased over the standard of reading in Africa, but hundreds like me aren’t. Thank you.

African politician’s remark:

Research indeed! I true research would have thought you better than dishing out opportunistic, unbalanced pieces, rather unperturbed! You still don’t get the point, do you, Mr. Savage? It’s unproductive going into a long epistle on your decision to consciously make sweeping and generalized one-sided statements about a people. You have an obligation to use your creative license with decorum but you have obviously chosen to hide under the excuse that those before you have sinned and that it’s fine to continue where they stopped. Good luck to you but let me assure you that you have made the wrong decision.

Comments of other contributors:

Patricia Pitsel:

While I agree that it is important for everyone and anyone to read (the man who does not read is no better off than the man who cannot read), I do have a concern with the vast over generalization that Africans don’t read. There are some 54 countries in Africa – surely the author is not suggesting that the same “don’t read gene” is equally distributed equally over the continent.

Victor Ikoli: Copy Editor at Qatar Tribune Newspaper

Reading books is fantastic but the culture is practically on the decline not only among Africans. I think reading books comes with skill and some people just don’t have it. Their parents didn’t have the skills and can’t read, their partners don’t read. They just don’t see the point to read. It’s a shame, but it just really isn’t part of some people’s lives to read books but things get better with quality book covers and content to attract people.

Toyin Adewunmi: Reporter at The Guardian Newspaper

I agree with you reading habit is fading off, and in order for this country to move forward, we need to bring the habit back to the grass root.

Joel Savage’s final comment:

Hello, Mr. Collins, I respect all those who comment on my articles, I will, therefore, like to discontinue arguing with you. I’m very glad that you live in Belgium yourself, during your leisure hours, please do visit the new library at the Connick Plein in Antwerp, from Monday to Saturday and count the number of Africans in the Library and those you will see at the nearby coffee shops drinking beer. We shall always remain friends on social platforms, but now I’m sorry I need to quit this argument and finally nothing changes my style of writing.

The writer’s opinion: All the seven continents have one goal, to reach the top of Mount Everest. Some have reached, some are in the middle but Africa is still at the place it started. The reason is simple and logical because we hate to learn, yet we don’t like corrections. We don’t even try to do something to realize achievement or failure when failures would have given us the experience to do better.

As for me, I write and my  passion as a writer doesn’t change my attitude or the tone of my articles, because, I don’t depend on either hate or love from readers, so if you hate me, you are just wasting your precious mind. That will rather encourage me to write something that would hurt you more, because “I write what I like.” Tribute to Steve Biko.

Ryszard Kapuscinski’s ‘The Shadow Of The Sun’: The Reason I like This Book

When one looks at a bird in a cage, flying, hopping and whistling, you may think the bird is very happy. You will only know how happy the bird is when you open the cage. With tremendous force, the bird flies away without looking back. That is the real taste of freedom. It’s the same taste of freedom in a democratic society, which enhances me to write the truth, without looking back or thinking of any consequences.

Many times society calls someone who isn’t contributing anything positive for the benefit of the society, a lazy or useless person, yet your efforts and hard work, would not always give you friends or lovers, but an empire of deceitful enemies and people who wish you will never make it in life. The more one makes someone life miserable, the more the victim learns and creates a better future for himself.

African adventures

The shadow of the sun reveals Polish writer, Ryszard Kapucinski’s adventures in Africa

http://www.amazon.com/Shadow-Sun-My-African-Life-ebook/dp/B002RI934M

African leaders in some ways have betrayed Africans like the whites. When a white man comes to Africa, he knows the reason he came, reasons that are never known. A lot of dangerous vaccines have been inoculated to cause sicknesses and to generate diseases in the continent, without the knowledge of our leaders, because they are only interested in the money and corned beef the white used as bait. Africa is like a dumping ground for all unwanted stuff from Advanced Countries.

Belgian freelance journalist, writer, and author Joel Savage, shares his life story as an immigrant in Belgium, a country that has no value for the black man

It isn’t an exaggeration to say that almost all Africa’s woes, wars, and diseases were caused by the West and America at the same time, even though many still believe Africa blames the West and America blindly. In one of my books, ‘Little Boygium-Wonderful Experience’ I wrote about the crime of Europeans in Africa until I read about the same atrocities caused by the Europeans in Ryszard Kapunciski’s ‘The Shadow of The Sun.’

The Polish author reveals in his book, the most shocking atrocities committed by Europeans against Africans, including the role of the Belgians in the Rwanda’s Genocide and Africa’s underdevelopment. Being a white writer, who has been able to give such accounts in his book, makes ‘The Shadow Of The Sun’ a worthy book to read.

King Leopoldchadnezzar Of Belgium: Don’t Do Unto Others, What You Don’t Want Others To Do Unto You

Belgium supports crime with the murderer King Leopold's statue

The murderer King Leopoldchadnezzer of Belgium

There is no sane person or country on earth which can erect a statue of Adolf Hitler, because he murdered six million Jews, thus; when Belgium erects statue of a king who killed over ten million Africans in their own country because of greed, and named many streets after the same murderer, what does Belgium wants to tell the world or tell the black man?

The Black man is worthless, isn’t it? We don’t feel that way Belgium because the Bible says “God created man in his own image.” Like every human being, the Black man was also in his mother’s belly for nine months, before he was born. The Bible didn’t say that the Whitman was born by a woman and the Black man was pulled out of the stem of a tree.

There is so much indelible blood stain in your hand Belgium, after brutally killing Patrice Lumumba, for fighting for the independence of his country. Innocent children, mothers, fathers were savagely hacked to death under the reign of the lunatic King Leopold II. Instead of saying sorry, you put more salt in Black man’s injury and built statues in honor of such a murderer.

Statue of King Leopoldchadnezzer of Belgium: A  sick society.

There is something terribly wrong Belgium. I thought the Whitman is extremely intelligent, unfortunately, I don’t see that in the government of Belgium and also in the Media. There are many questions than answers Belgium. I would like you to answer these questions. Why such a small country like Belgium, remains one of the most difficult country to rule in this world? Why Belgium such a small country, yet too much suicide? Why Belgium such a small country but one can’t see any progress?

Innocent blood can’t be shed and the dead can’t be mocked Belgium. All the statues of the murderer King Leopold must come down. Your heart can be stubborn and pride overshadow you to ignore the breakdown of the statue of that murderer. I am not one of the coward Africans who think of food, and therefore afraid to speak against injustice. Sometimes the whole day, I forget I haven’t eaten, because I think of how those statues will come down.

Let’s turn back the clock. If an African king had killed 10 million Belgians in Europe or Africa and a statue of that king is built in his honor and streets named after him, would you be happy?

“Belgium Don’t do unto others what you don’t want others to do unto you.”
