      true my brother it needs patriots ..these aptriots must not avoid the economic discourse after being exposed to a modicum of political freedom it is right that the podium should also be a platform to preach wealthshare and equal distribution the people should be involved in the debate of how it should be done..

  2. Africa must resolve it issue without european intereference africa 4 africans

  3. To me the entire quote you have referenced above adds more depth to what he is trying to say:

    “To take part in the African revolution it is not enough to write a revolutionary song; you must fashion the revolution with the people. And if you fashion it with the people, the songs will come by themselves, and of themselves.

    In order to achieve real action, you must yourself be a living part of Africa and of her thought; you must be an element of that popular energy which is entirely called forth for the freeing, the progress and happiness of Africa. There is no place outside that fight for the artist or for the intellectual who is himself not concerned with and completely at one with the people in the great battle of Africa and of suffering humanity.”

  4. First we need to free ourselves from the mental slavery , and begin to liberate ourselves then African , without having any interference from Europe
