The Collapse of a Titan by Rais Neza Boneza

Lumumba

Near madness,
Strangled in the North, the Equator– Ngbadolite, Ngemena, to the Ubangui border– In the center, Tetela land–
Kisangani, Bunia–
In the south, the land of copper, Katanga, Cornered on all sides, deprived country, Following the indomitable flows of its destiny.

Screams are so deep,
Yet the silence around, so guilty. Today, his ride is clothed
With the shameful read more

Therapy Strategy to Remedy African Instability By Rais Neza Boneza

 

Diagnosis: Negative Leadership

In the 60s, most of the African countries snatched precipitately their independences from the colonialists.

Lyrics: We’ve Had Enough By Michael Jackson

Lies a poor boy with his broken toy
Too young to understand
