A Man Can’t Be Praised For His Evil Deeds, Unless You’re Evil

Luther 5

We often hear “I don’t like Obama, I hate CNN, I don’t like George W. Bush etc. If you try to find out the reason of their hatred and dislike, they will  tell you why.

It is very easy to hate than showing or giving love to a person. Thus, probably if someone hates me, there must be a reason to that. But when I haven’t committed any crime, I would like to find out why someone hates me. Is it because of my probing articles?

I am an African writer living in Europe, reading every humiliating and degrading articles European and American journalists write about Africa. Do you expect me to join them when they have many problems to deal with on their shores but pretend everything is fine?

In Brussels, come daily European and other world leaders to talk about problems affecting the world, with the aim of finding solutions to tackle those problems. In the same Brussels stands a statue of Leopold II, a king who killed and maimed over ten million Africans, including women and children.

Belgium didn’t take the crime of this criminal into consideration. Instead, they built a statue to glorify and named streets after him throughout the country, when there is no statue of Adolf Hitler, for killing 6 million Jews. Would you hate me as an African writer, who values life, if I write that the Belgian government should pull down that statue?

The world leaders  and journalists converging at Brussels don’t care about any statue, because they are not Africans, moreover the life of an African to them is valueless. But since the Bible I read tells me that ‘God created man in His own image,’ I will write an article against this injustice and ignorance.

There is no one in his right mind who would praise someone who has committed such a heinous crime unless the person is sick himself or evil. Sometimes “Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed,”said Martin Luther King Jr. Yes, the sufferer has to scream for the oppressor to know what the oppressed is going through.

Terrorism

The selfishness, greed, hypocrisy and bad policies of European and American leaders have generated scores of hatred for the common citizens. Whatever terrorism has taken place in Europe and America, in the past and today were caused by Europe and America.

In Brussels, they sit behind a heavy security gate and take measures to combat terrorism. After that, they give those measures to the media for publication but the reasons which led to the killing of  the innocent citizens are never given to the media. Because they don’t want the public to know the truth and again aren’t ready to change their bad policies.

It’s unfortunate that people don’t realize the harm these politicians are causing in the society against ordinary citizens. Do we have to depend on such people/politicians for security or protection? They were there when 9/11 occurred. They were there when runners taking part in a marathon were murdered by unscrupulous terrorists. They were there when terrorist struck France and they were there when Africa was intentionally plagued with Aids, Ebola, Lassa fever and other diseases.

When they see victims of terrorism bodies scattered, before you’ll soldiers and the police with guns at every point of the street, disrupting public activities. These politicians have no protection for us today or tomorrow. In fact, they have  left us sitting on a time bomb, without knowing when the next terrorist act will strike.

Honestly, the public can take good care of themselves more than what politicians can do, if each becomes his brother’s keeper, giving love, doing away with racism, discrimination and living in peace and harmony. Love truly conquers everything.

Can Home Cooking Build A Happy Marriage?

Cooking 4

Falling in love is a wonderful and magical experience between two people. The chemistry is strange and sometimes very complicated. The experience differs in many ways but the commonest are happiness, restlessness and strong emotions. However; falling in love doesn’t always guarantee a successful marriage or living together. Frankly speaking, according to statistics many are getting divorce more than getting together.

To build and support successful marriage or relationships, many partners read books written as a guide to happy marriage. Despite hundreds of books counseling couples, lovers are constantly in pain, emotionally and psychologically, affected by painful love affairs. The causes of divorces or separations vary, lack of attention, sex, cheating, quarrels, financial matters and others. However; few things many never thought of as destroyer of marriages is the lack of cooking at home and lack of prevention of early sex in teenage relationship.

Many couples friendship began at school as teenagers before they settled. In principle, it is always good for people to study and know each other very well, before entering into relations or love affairs. But on moral issues entering into relationships as teenagers isn’t a wise thing to do. Children as young as thirteen and fourteen indulged in caressing and kissing. This is seen as normal in advanced countries but in Africa, it is not permitted.

Most of these early relationships end up in separate ways or settling together.When they finally get married, the love isn’t strong as before. That’s where the problems begin. In this case, the marriage doesn’t go far. Why? The reason is simple and logical. Both have seen their nakedness too much as teenagers to the extent that they no longer value their precious bodies as adults. No happiness and the essence of enjoying a happy relationship is completely ruined.

Here the dignity and the worthiness of the woman have been neglected and abused by the man. It is always the man that causes the breakup because he wants something new. Many start to cheat and stayed late at work in illicit love affairs. A woman or man may find the real happiness in life, marriage, living together or in relationships, when they enter into love affairs as adults than as teenagers.

Any man or woman who doesn’t know how to cook before getting into a relationship or marriage may not fully enjoy the relationship. There is always a guarantee for a happy marriage when one of the partners knows how to cook but if both can’t cook means the marriage have a bleak future. Imagine a family depending always on fast food or tin foods. How would a husband feel after a day’s hard work, comes home to sit behind the dining table and be served with can spaghetti, with that marshy tomato sauce? Many enjoy that but that’s health hazard.

A man facing such situation may never be happy. Some may speak against it but many hide the way they feel when upset. Since he can’t live with that any longer he starts to seek his interest in other places. That’s where the cheating starts. If the one he is seeing can’t provide him those delicious meals he is missing from his previous partner, the relationship automatically comes to an end.

It is therefore very essential for both men and women to learn or know how to cook before getting into a relationship or marriage. Getting familiar with cooking isn’t a difficult issue. There are thousands of books and adult schools for cooking. Time factor is always an issue. Many may not have the time to go to a cooking school after work. Here a cooking book is very useful.

Just follow the instructions on how to cook and next thing is the delicious meal on the dining table. You may not be perfect at your first attempt but remember practice makes man perfect. Besides, cultivating the habit of cooking at home saves a lot of money. I am happily married for the past twenty years. When my wife is busy at work, I do the cooking for the children. This is the only way to share the secrets of why our marriage is stronger than ever. I am a very good cook apart from my writing career.

Donald Trump: Has The PlayBoy Cover Issue Come Back To Haunt Him?

Playboy

Every decision we make and everything we do in our lives have an impact on our future. Whether we did it for fun, money or fame, sometimes, the past will come to haunt us.

Donald Trump doesn’t need an introduction. A well known television personality, Trump is the Republican presidential nominee. In March 1990, Trump was featured in the front cover of the “Playboy Magazine.”

Many agree that his association with the playboy magazine disqualified him to contest as a presidential aspirant. Trump has enjoyed his life in every circle, without much opposition or criticism, but now it seems  this ‘Playboy’ front page cover issue, has come back to haunt him.

Can he make it to the presidential seat? Time will tell.
