Help Africans or leave them alone!

Africa continent.

“Even though the porcupine’s breasts are surrounded by pokes the baby porcupine still goes there to suck.”

It is on record that sub-Saharan Africa is greatly infected by HIV/AIDS and some people even say that it is the centre of death and misery? Yes, that maybe the outside viewpoint, but the inside viewpoint is not as horrible as the outsiders paint the picture. In the first place death is for everyone and so to die is just to answer the call of God. In the second place we believe that every person’s cause of death has already been predetermined and so to die is just to answer the call of God and to join the world of ancestors. Should we run away from staying in sub- Saharan in order for us to escape HIV/AIDS deaths!

Whichever, the situation in sub- Saharan Africa about AIDS is, we the dwellers of sub- Sahara Africa know that we are the owners of this part of the continent and our bodies and spirits shall rest in this land. If sub- Saharan Africa is to be filled up with graves; let it be so since that will be a good testimony to the entire world that the sub- Saharan Africans died on their land. Where are the true friends of Africa? Let them speak, let them give and let them assist the HIV/AIDS sub- Saharan with a vaccine and food and not to leave them for death.

Though there is HIV in sub-Saharan Africa, it is fascinating to note that life still goes on. People are building houses; some are buying expensive cars, others are running big multimillion business and some are employed by either the government or private sectors. People are still marrying and being given into marriage, children are being born and people are living their lives in full. Miracles are taking place as it were, in the dying environment. Yes, there are many problems in Africa and the picture may be gloomy but we the owners of Africa can see light at the end of the tunnel. It is like a diamond shinning amidst darkness.

About the author or the publisher
What is true love if one may ask? Is it only about kissing each other in public places, is it holding each other’s hand when walking, is it about opening doors of the car to each other, is it about sitting next to each other and patting each other’s back (even if you are in church where you are required to concentrate on God!), is it all about expressing one’s feelings by giving flowers and those cards full words that one hardly means (in a long term relationship at least)? Should we limit true love to these things only?

No! Of course not. Though some of these things earlier mentioned may be some expressions of love, true love resides in the heart of an individual. My argument is if you check the divorce rate for these countries where the so called “true love” is, you will be shocked to learn that there is no love at all. Marriages are contracts not permanent institutions any longer. Some may argue that African women don’t enjoy marriage life but they just endure in there (shipikisha club). Whichever the case could be, for them (African women) to endure in those marriages, it means they have learned over the years good conflict resolution skills.

However, let us look at the HIV/AIDS situation in marriages. Should couples file in for divorce because his/her spouse is HIV/AIDS positive or they should continue living together when we know that the risk of contracting HIC virus even by using the condom is quite high? It is interesting to note that many Africans especially women have hanged in there on the basis of “for better for worse vow”. Yes, lovers ought to share a Nsole in all situations
