AFRICA DAY



By

John Moono

Africa a continent seen as a benighted continent by the developed world. Is it Uhuru yet for Africa. No it is not yet Uhuru because we are not authors of our own well-being. It is not yet Uhuru because Africa is not yet born in us. It is not yet Uhuru because African Unity and Solidarity are still our dreams. It is not yet Uhuru because our ambitions always end. It is not yet Uhuru because we allow to be disregarded and humiliated. It is not yet Uhuru because we always Pull Ourselves Down under the Pull Him/Her Down syndrome. It is not yet Uhuru because guns are always being heard across the African continent.
Africa day has once again dawned upon us. This is stark reminder of the work that is before the Youths of this sleeping giant. Uhuru will only come when the Youths raise to the occasion and take up the mantle of the African Dream. The dream of a United Africa and shaping and telling the history of the African continent and the people of the continent.

It will only be Uhuru when we silence the guns, it will only be Uhuru when we become authors of our own well-being, it will only be Uhuru when our independence is accompanied by rapid economic and social development, it will only be Uhuru when African Unity and Solidarity are expressed in our decisions, it will only be Uhuru when we are respected and regarded around the world, it will only be Uhuru when we support one another as a people of the continent, it will only be Uhuru when our ambitions stop seeing their end.

It will only be Uhuru when Africa is finally born in us.
