Forward Never, Backwards Ever: Pan-Africanism Of Dictators

-A +A

Kenya's Uhuru and Uganda's Museveni -- Nkrumah they are not

Pan-African Congress held in Nairobi preached Pan-Africanism of African sheep and African wolves to liberate Africa for both African dictators and their victims when what African people need most is liberation from poverty and African dictatorship.

When Pan-Africanism was first launched, its goal was first to liberate Africa from colonialism in Africa and capitalist slavery in African Diaspora in North America, West Indies, Latin America and United Kingdom.

Pan-Africanism sought unity of Africans both in Africa and African Diaspora upon conclusion that Black people all over the world had similar interests, similar enemies, similar vision and same independence that was impossible without unity.

After independence, Pan-Africanist movement split into two in Africa: Between progressive and socialist leaning African leaders like Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana, Julius Nyerere of Tanzania, Gamal Abdel Nasser of Egypt, Modibo Keita of Mali, Patrice Lumumba of Congo and Kenneth Kaunda of Zambia, and conservative African leaders like Presidents Jomo Kenyatta of Kenya, Mobutu Sese Seko of Zaire, Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia, Kamuzu Banda of Malawi and Felix Houphouet-Boigny of Ivory Coast whose main goal was to weaken and kill Pan-Africanism.

During the Cold War, the progressive wing of Pan-Africanism supported the socialist East while the right wing worked hard to kill socialism and Pan-Africanism.

Over the years the alliance of the West and right-wing African leaders succeeded to kill socialism and Pan-Africanism in Africa.

But as most Africa became completely submerged under right-wing one-party dictatorship, a new struggle for freedom and democracy took root in Africa, unfortunately without the support of the West.
