Testing the Corona Vaccine in Africa is Africa’s contribution to curbing the pandemic
Our God’s( The Whites) are making a headway in the fight against the pandemic corona virus and the need us to contribute our quota as has always been the case and people are making noise here and there. I advise you to shut up if you are one of them.
See, It is even possible that the people in the labs developing the so called vaccines are from Africa. We have the finest brains but we don’t have the systems and support in place to harness it for our development. They put scholarship packages in place to rope away our intelligent brothers and sisters, tie them down with employment opportunities to work for them the rest of their lives. The Modern day slavery.
We are always waiting on them to invent everything and then we would start building prototypes or copycat and be hailing ourselves as talented. The likes of Kantanka, producing comic toys that are very embarrassing. Not producing things to solve real time problems. I feel ashamed anytime I see Africans designing prototypes of things that has been in existence for ages and people are applauding it. When at all are we also going to be the first invent anything new and meaningful?
Now we have an outbreak on our hand. Countries with thinking Leaders are puting their virologist together and resourcing them to find a vaccine and a cure to it. We are here, busy organizing fasting and prayer parties and ignorantly looking for hairs in Bible because we claim to be more catholic than the Pope. Our pastors and mallams who claim to have healing powers (TB Joshua, Obinim, Obofour…) are missing in action. Others are disgracing themselves with fake prophesies that are not coming true. They think it’s Ghana’s election.
Now our God’s have managed to come out with some alo vaccine, and it needs to be tested somewhere and they point fingers at us and we are complaining. Shut the fuck up! Is this the first time of testing a vaccine here? Was a malaria vaccine not tested in Ghana just recently? Have we learned anything from the previous experiences?
Since we refuse to think and be independent, what else do we expect than being use as guinea pigs for experiment? Are we not also going to benefit from the vaccine? What contribution are we also bringing to the table? We are always at the receiving end? We behave as if without the west, we are nothing. It’s yet another time to receive, why the hullabaloo?
See, I know the ingredients needed for the mass production of that vaccine would be harvested from our continent here or a more potent treatment can be gotten from our herbs here in Africa but all our herbalist know and can produce is penis enlargement medicine and how to last long during sex medicine. Aside that, maybe koko or Odepua medicine.
Oh Africans, hmm, In the abundance of waters, the fool is still thirsty ampa.
This one too shall pass. Hope we would learn this time.
