US-AFRICA SUMMIT | INVESTING IN THE NEXT GENERATION



malabo2DM1603_468x313-e13238867431871US-AFRICA SUMMIT  | INVESTING IN THE NEXT GENERATION.

The US-Africa Summit was attended by nearly fifty African heads of state in Washington DC from August 6th through

August 8th.

I applaud the effort and hard work in bringing them all to the US to meet with the President of the United States, other

government officials and American businesses, for the first time in history.

” Invest in Africa’s next generation”.

That was the theme of this summit.

Was rolling out the red carpet for some heads of state, in power over 35 years, really investing in Africa’s next generation?

President Obama.

The Corporate Council of Africa is honoring a president who’s country has the fastest growing GDP in all of Africa, yet 70 %

of the people live in poverty!

EG is a small country of a little more then 700,000 citizens. Why in the world is there 70 percent poverty?

Is this the “New Africa” the CCA envisions for Africa? Is seems to reek of old Africa to me.

Pictured above are some of the cars in France and a home in Malibu CA owned by President Obiang’s son,  Manque .

Rich nations with presidents who have mansions in America, and a fleets of fancy million dollar super cars, in their estates

in France etc,  while their own people live in poverty, hunger and destitute, in corrugated metal or mud walled homes or

should I say shanties, huts and shacks?

For the New Africa to emerge, all despots, all corrupt politicians and complicit facilitators must be removed from the

equation.

Some of those folks siphoned  hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars from their natural resources and contracts with

multinational corps who are raping Africa bare.

And it’s not like you can just transfer these huge sums of cash via Paypal.  There are other facilitators involved.  A complex

web of corruption, that needs to be extinguished.

If u do the crime, u must do the time, so to speak.

 

THE LAND WILL BE RICH.

THE POLITICAL BARONS OF CORRUPTION WILL BE RICH.

THE WEST AND CHINA WILL BE RICH.

BUT THE PEOPLE WILL BE POOR.  ab14 copyright.

This world is a massive environment and our images and stories and concerns are spread to sparingly throughout the planet and digital terra. People of color comprise 4/5th of the world's population. Yet we have to Google search and channel surf and scour the event calendars to find ourselves, whether it be a person, place or thing. We should nevermore let oceans, languages, religions, cultures or man-made boundaries partition us. Our humanity is to powerful to remain fragmented, lets make it ONE again. Sincere thanks, Artikleblak
