I would LIKE to agree with you, but unless a whole new thought process emerges among those who would lead there, I just don't know where I can derive a basis for a more hopeful belief.
I mean, here is a country (Rwanda) that saw some of the worst violence of my lifetime up to that point. The people against whom the violence was mainly perpetrated took back power... and do what with it? Initiate Africa's version of WWI. And not to seek justice, but to promote personal gain through the ongoing destruction of even more people. The idea that you wouldn't even insist on capturing your own attackers (the Interahamwe) is telling.
African leaders have got to embrace the position that black life is not cheap. Until that happens, the problem areas in Africa will continue to be lost causes. I appreciate your perspective, Oshun, and I hope history proves you right and me wrong.
