Why is Africa Still Held in Contempt? african presidents 1 Top story

The meddling has not stopped. During the Libyan crisis, a plane carrying African Heads of States on the AU mission in that crisis, was stopped by NATO planes over African soil!! The African input in the Libyan crisis was totally ignored. Up to now, Libya is in crisis. There are even attempts to attack the core African values on the family in, for instance, the matter of homosexuals. Indeed, in the West, they, for instance, criminalize polygamy by law. In Africa it is and has always been part of our way of life. Yet we do not complain. When, however, we legislate against homosexuals, in response to the provocation by Western sponsored NGOs vis a vis our traditional values, we are threatened with sanctions. This is all “tharawu” – “contempt” as we say in Swahili.
