It’s the root cause for the crisis of leadership in Africa, our culture of dependency, and our beggar mentality. It’s the reason we willingly allow others to use us to advance their personal, political, ideological, theological, economic and racial agendas; it’s we who allow them to chew our food for us and spit it into our mouths to swallow. Our mental chains are the reason we shamefully sell our own selves, our people, and our nations for the truthful lies, vain flatteries, and cheap bribes of opportunists and adversaries who pretend to seek our interest; and why we then stupidly & hypocritically claim we’re victims! Our mental chains are the reason for the new slavery, colonization, and scramble for Africa. It’s the reason we vilify our true heroes when they are alive, and then build monuments for them with the very stones we use to stone them to death! We’re our own problem. Let’s stop the denials, excuses, and blame game. Let’s quit the self-pity syndrome, the “they-did-this-to-me” or “I-have-suffered-this” excuses. Let’s start taking full responsibility for our destiny. “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed” (John 8:36). Let’s unchain the Elephant! Our Mindset! Yes, Africa must think!—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
