“My decision to destroy the authority of the blacks in Saint Domingue (Haiti) is not so much based on considerations of commerce and money, as on the need to block forever the march of the blacks in the world.” — Napoleon Bonaparte
We start by understanding what a puppet is. We can describe a puppet as an animated object that can resemble various figures and is manipulated by a person called a puppeteer. A puppet can be fun because it appears as though it can move on its own, however in reality it’s movements are being controlled and manipulated by the puppeteer. A puppet can be highly influenced by a person, an organization or government and will always do what it is told to do and how to do it.
As of 2015, most of the global poor live in sub-Saharan Africa where the average poverty rate for sub-Saharan Africa stands at about 41% and out of the world’s 28 poorest countries, 27 are in sub-Saharan Africa with poverty rates that are above 30 %. The largest reserves of cobalt, diamond, platinum, and uranium in the world are in Africa. According to the United Nation Environment Program, Africa holds 65% of the world’s arable land, and 10% of internal renewable freshwater sources. When you take a closer look at the statistics given by the United Nations, isn’t it strange that after Independence, the continent Africa is still wallowing in poverty? Poverty still prevails in a continent with the largest natural resources in the world.
Before this colonial masters support your push into power, they have their four point agenda you must fulfill when in power, they are as follows:
- Keep the African people poor by deliberately impoverishing them by creating instability especially in rural areas. With this, they will engage in so many criminal activities which will make the young African men engage in criminal doings and the young women engage in widespread prostitution benefiting a few European pedophiles.
- Keep them underdeveloped through holding back on building basic amenities such as good roads, lack of clean water, non-existent healthcare system and expensive educational system aimed at discouraging the poor from attaining a basic education.
- Keep stolen proceeds in the colonial host countries, so that in turn, it can generate interest rates which will benefit the colonial countries. Wonder why they never raise an alarm when these African leaders stash this money in their banks?
- Create political instability through the divide and control rule. The aim is to create distractions among the Africans so that they will forget the real issue at hand by going after the wrong enemy. While this is going on, arms sales generate money and the proceeds benefit Europeans since they are the major arms manufacturers. Don’t get me wrong we have had genuine leaders who defied this agenda and attempted to create wealth and growth in the continent, prominent names such as Patrice Lumumba and Thomas Sankara of Congo and Burkina Faso respectively were used as a warning to those who will renegade on their agenda. These men tried all they could in removing the interference of the colonial power in Africa but they died mercilessly. To add more to this, haven’t you noticed that when these useless summits such as China-Africa, Japan-Africa, Britain-Africa, France- Africa, United States-Africa and most recently Russia-Africa summits come up, the puppet are always in attendance? Just think of this, how do these summits benefit you and me? What astonishes me the most is that they always display their loyalty to their colonial masters by going on medical tourism, holiday tourism and they send their kids to their respective colonial masters country for a better education, meanwhile ignoring the ones they left in dilapidated state back home. They use their media to show Africa in a poor state indirectly pointing at us as savages who cannot govern themselves. They laugh at us knowing fully well that the leaders who govern each African country are their puppets. They have visas free to Africa but Africans go through long processes in attaining visas to their countries. Think about this, why is it that when one African president wants to try and eradicate poverty by ignoring western interference then they create human rights propaganda through the media to discredit him or her which will then lead to either invasions or coup? Africans live to survive but we have no idea what our future has been mortgaged by people who we don’t even see.
We control nothing, some of us were born in poverty that we don’t even know our rights to demand good governance but because we know our leaders based on his or her tribal affiliation to us, we fail to know their real plans for us. The colonial masters are aware of the leaders you like, he comes from your tribe, they reach out to him to strike a partnership of promoting this big four agenda in exchange for media coverage and support during elections. When this new puppet president wins, why is it that they never deliver on their mandate or promises? Think about this after reading this article. Stop blaming leadership as our woes. When not interfered or tampered with, Africa is blessed with intelligent men and women who can remove us from this mess we are in. The revolution must be to purge Africa off any western colonial interference. At the moment we are still fighting the wrong battles. During independence, the colonial masters had companies they owned and this companies were used to steal the resources of the people, which is then sent back to their countries. These companies still exist today using another name under the disguise of “Multinational Company”. Their presence can be seen in African countries with vast natural resources. Part of the independence agreement was to retain the presence of these companies in Africa. On paper, they are supposed to pay taxes and loyalties back to the host government but do they pay those taxes which will benefit the people? They simply use that money to pay their puppets for a job well done. Ever wondered why Europe is developed and Africa is either still developing or under-developed? As always, it’s my opinion.
