The truth is indefensible. It will always stand out. Africans have no solidarity and national pride. As soon as leaders are elected into power, they look else where for their salvation. Instead of all African leaders uniting to become a powerful economic hub, Africans are busy making ten commandments to kill each other supported by imperialist forces. I agree with Putin. Africans should start taking heed of the truth and start moving forward. What a disgrace that all that African nations do is enrich the wise West .


What Vladin is saying here is why is it that us Africans use our motherland only for our dead bodies? Instead of developing it we opt to take our money to Europe. We can’t even buy hospital equipment for our countries intead we opt to be treated from Europe. We have Victoria Falls but Zambians people go to watch london bridge.
I agree with President Putin analysis of African leadership. Yes Africa cannot develop because money for developing the continent is siphoned out.
This reminds me of professor Mubanga Kashoki’s book; ‘An African Scholar.’ he said some thing similar to this only that it concerns intellectuals. His view was that an African Scholar can be the best at any given university in the world but cannot create or invent anything. Reason-give him a good job, wife, house, money and car that marks the end of intellectualism.
Africans those with resources should wake up from their slumber and develop the continent.
I don't think he is the first one to tell what's wrong with Africans.

i answered this question million time ,,,, i am expert economist... here is my answer once again..

let take Example

PM Meles make 3000 birr salary monthly.... we all know this is Bs so we all know Meles is 3 billion dollar rich.. but if someone said let us increased our PM salary everyone would say no Ethiopia is poor country she cant afford to pay PM million of dollar .. but we r okay when PM meles stolen 3 billion behind our back..

our EAL CEO make 10,000 birr as salary monthly but we r okay if he took million of dollar as kickback to buy for plane and other equipment.. the same here if someone said let us increase our EAL CEO WE CRY HEAVEN..

I TOOK THIS TWO EXAMPLE and by answering this two example u get the idea...

Meles run 100 billion birr economy .. his salary must be besed on that he will get 1% of 100 billion dollar if i am not mistken this mean PM meles will get one billion birr per year .. so PM meles will have interest developing Ethiopia economy without thinking how much birbe he is going to get why the system by it self give him insintive .. if he make Ethiopian economy 200 billion then he will get two billion so he will hire the most qualifed people to make Ethiopian economy 300 billion birr instead of looking for birbe...

the same with EAL CEO if he make EAL ONE billion dollar airlines he must get one % of that ten million dollar if i am not mistaken then EAL CEO WILL HARD at work making EAL a two billion airlines this solve many of African problem

if African leader what they took under their rule legit money out of power they will invest in Africa to make more money instead of hiding their loot in Swiss bank..

what funny is those buda Amhara telling us TPLF looted 30 billion dollar so we have to hunt them down and arrest them... this means the Amhara want us to start civil war...

tplf royal family where not caught they left the empire ... they give up their empire for free that is the most expensive gift one government can give us .. to top of it they elected PM Abiy too.. this means who would have stop them if they just pack and left without electing PM for us ..we would have been in civil war... sometime we should say thanks and grateful when ever it is due.. instead of saying thanks to TPLF royal family we hunt them down.. so do u think it is wrong to loot their safety money while in power.. if they did not loot when they were in power today they would have lived homeless with government salary.. but they r smart they stash away their retirement fund ... now not only they should have money to live in Golden state.. if nothing happened they should have money to live in USA .. SO HAVING GOOD amount of money is required and they took that money in good time

let even so about queen Azab .. she was queen and first lady .. in fact the Ethiopia the only first lady who r first... but everyone hunted her to arrest her so if she doesnt stash away million dollar even billion dollar how on earth she would have lived after the power.. if we African or Ethiopia if we ask honest from our leader then we should be honest to them when they lose power.. if we r not honest to them for example queen Azab must live like queen to rest of her life if we cant do that for her dont ask her why she loot.. otherwise it become idiot question

Hi there

I think it is time to face the truth. Africans have a syndrome that makes us believe, as Putin puts it, to wait for the hand out of europian or Americans but i will say worship foreign powers.

This kind of belief can be traced back to the colonial era. If you see most of Africa was a wild or virgin place and its development of infrastructures and industries started to show up at the same time as the colonial era. The harsh colonialists claimed that they brought all the development and there was no leader of African nations that refute that idea because they are appointed or supported by the west in order to protect their interest and quash the peoples' movement against colonialism. It was the only Ethiopian kings Atse tewodros, atse Menilik and Hilesselasie and Probably the late Dr. Robert Mugabe who refute that instance but it was not with out flow.

On top of that with the continuous propaganda of the west and the established education system that glorifies the west and diminishes African value was perpetuated for a very long time without any challenging truth.
This same tactic has been used to hold back the Asian, the Indians, and the Chinese. However through strong nationalist policy and socialism they able to break that colonial yoke and started to believe in themselves as a result we can see the economic success they have. Are they completely out of the woods yes it looks like but the west never stops to stop them?
We can see the current situation of the coronavirus case that is aimed to slow down the Chinese economy.

The main thing the west developed, their unity under the so-called first world nations, g20, who , interpole, un, world bank and NATO they can keep their differences aside and unit for their interest and they do not stop to destroy completely the treat they face brutally diplomatically and through subversive actions.

It is true through brutality they instill fear in some African countries and destroy their values and continue to destroy it. for example an african nation leader still and saves the money in the bank in Europe they know from the very beginning the money is illegal and comes from the people but they deliberately facilitate the situation. Let say Hossni mobarek the former Egypt president he had about 70 billion dollars in the European private account
no who will get that money. he was arrested and threatened to sign off most of his money and let him out of the prison so he die quickely.

My point is we shouldn't be angry at Putin, actually, he is making us see clearly this problem. since we worship the west,for that matter any foreigner, as he puts or listens it is a good idea he spoke about it.I think it is the main reason that you opened this trade here. we don't have the moral ground to be angry at him. we should feel the same way as he said it and then we may change. It is no surprise the past government in Ethiopia puts the nation back another century by installing federalism without any real economic policy. They planed their annual budget by taking about 36% in to consider getting help from the west. Every time we have an ignorant leader favored by the west took power the west will win further. now the Chinese groomed Theodros adahanom and abyi to power now we are seeing chneese dominace in any aspect of the econmy.

Their priority is not in line with the people's needs because their financer interest is different. for example during covid 19 the adiss ababa mayor continued dimolishing houses and building parks at meskel square can'tr that wait till the country opened up again for the business?
