In the year 2014, it was a dialogue between about 50 African leaders with the United States. In 2017, it was a dialogue of put down by US-African leaders. How are the times and the actors changing!
It was as if the former Nigerian president anticipated Donald Trump by opening fire on him in South Africa where he said, inter alia:
“The fact that America can produce a Trump in this day and age, it means Americans are as human as we are. I am not justifying what African leaders are doing. If our leaders are doing wrong, we should say that they are doing wrong. Trump has come so that America can be humbled, and we can also learn that lesson”
As if Donald Trump were on cue, he fired at African leaders, saying: It is shameful for African leaders to seek exit from ICC. In my view, these leaders want to have all the freedom to oppress their poor people without anyone asking them a question. I think there is no shortcut to maturity and in my view, Africa should be recolonized because Africans are still under slavery. Look at how those African leaders change constitutions in their favour so that they can be live presidents. They are all greedy and do not care about the common people.
When I saw them gang up against ICC yet they can’t even find an amicable solution for the ongoing quandary in Burundi, I thought to myself these people lack discipline and humane heart. They can’t lead by example. The only thing they are interested in is accumulating wealth from poor tax payers. Before they think of exiting from ICC, they should first restore peace in Burundi and other war-tone countries rather than gathering like hyenas with the aim of finishing the poor people
