AFRICAN RENAISSANCE

Here are the youths again

Chief spirit of African renaissance

They are at the cross-roads of destiny

Speak the words master

Their hearts will be blessed

The mission

Empowered

Evils identified

Destroyed

Challenges overcome

Opportunities maximized

Innovations hatched

Threats neutralized

Tolerance embraced

Rights restored

Impunities punished

Corruption exorcized

Nepotism nailed

Dictatorship axed

War warred

With dialogue

Dialogue kills

No one

Democracy in blood

Democracy lived

Deserting voices

Respected

Deserting voices

Listened to

Rigging history

Family dynasty

Myopic

Uprooted

And

Burned

Society absolutely free

Society empowered

Society unified

Society at peace

Society happy

Education for all

Health for all

Food for all

Shelter for all

Resources for all

Internet and Information

For all

Equity for all

Justice for all

Keep the network opened

Spirit of Africa

In you

We are

Chiefly Indomitable

African renaissance.
