I have decided that I shall write a lot more about Africa this year and not just the traditional war rally cries but well thought out articles too about current affairs, social matters and everything else in between. I passionately think that Africa must begin to tell her story and not look to others to do that for them. It is a crying shame when that happens! And each of us, originally from here and the others who have since taken up home here, must begin to do that. Stories of a diverse nature that reflect the heartbeat of the continent, stories that beat with the pulse of the land and that reflect the varied colours that make me proud to be African and to live in Africa. Motherland oyeeeeeeeeeee!
Yesterday was 50 years since the assassination of Patrice Lumumba, he would have been 85 this year!
