Dim Chukwu Emeka Ojukwu stood & fought for equity, Justice and fairness for a better society where no one is left behind. Born with silver spoon, well groomed, educated and far ahead of his peers, he foresaw the looming scourge and danger of barbaric, corrupt, uncivilized, illiterate, feudal & blood thirsty elite controlling the levers of power and he challenged the manipulative and unjust system. A rare gem then, and even now.

But the tragedy of Kawu Ishaq Modibbo in public domain and discuss are that he is anthropologically to poor & deficient to discern the concept of an ideal society & time. A clear symptom of Almajiri syndrome as a result of genetic mutation from generations of beggars and lepers.

But let us tolerate Kawu Ishaq Modibbo's views & ranting for at least, we have an Almajiri in our midst that can read, write and express his feudal ideology without bombing us.

Psychologically, people that are far behind in every sphere of human endevour in any society tend to be hostile, aggressive, critical & negative. So we should have better understanding of Modibbo's behavioral pattern and sympathize with him. In fact, Vanguard and other southern media should encourage these Almajiri writers so that we can gauge and study their mindset.

To say Dim Chukwu Emaka Ojukwu is a rebel is the right word after all Jesus Christ, Mohammed, Martin Luther King jnr, Hindra Ghandi, other upright and notable figures rebelled against feudal and manipulative elite.

But for me & my household. Dim Chukwu Emeka Ojukwu is a formidable ICON then, now and forever. Adieu Ikemba!

Torture In Libya What Are African Leaders Doing About This?
News Sources posted on 03-03-2012, 21:10:05 PM
A shocking video has appeared on the Internet showing Libyan rebels torturing a group of black Africans. People with their hands bound are shown being locked in a zoo-like cage and allegedly forced to eat the old Libyan flag.

├é┬ş"Eat the flag, you dog. Patience you dog, patience. God is Great," screams a voice off-camera in the video uploaded to YouTube last week, which also made its way onto LiveLeak.com.

The torturers are also shown making the group of captive black Africans stand up with pieces of green cloth still in their mouths and apparently forcing them start jumping. Â

A number of people are shown standing outside the cage watching the atrocity. Â

In the course of the fighting to topple Gaddafi last year, sub-Saharan African migrants and refugees "became targets of stigma, discrimination and violence," the human rights group Amnesty International said last month.

"At the beginning of the crisis, there was vastly exaggerated propaganda for which the highest level of the National Transitional Council should take some responsibility because they largely contributed to that unfounded propaganda," said Donatella Rovera, Amnesty's senior crisis response advisor.

Some of the black migrants managed to flee into neighboring Mali and Niger, but more than 5,000 were detained. They face mass execution, beatings, and revenge killings, according to an Al Jazeera report published back in September.

Before the Libyan uprising broke out, the country hosted about a million black African workers, many of them employed in domestic work, construction, trash collection and other low-wage jobs.

Human Rights Investigations (HRI) suspect Libyan rebels of ethnic cleansing of the black population of the country, particularly in the city of Tawergha.

The majority of African emigrants abroad are the direct result of people in Africa having more children than they can sustain, if people in Africa had better family planning and population control they will not have to be dehumanized in other parts of the world.

Ojukwu's burial is the greatest ever in Nigeria! Enough said...

@ Eire
what a simplistic view. I believe/hope you know it's a bit more complicated than that. If not I am happy to help

@ Aguabata,
it is that simple, but of course to africans it is not. Majority of poverty and starvation in africa is caused by poor family planning and over population not natural disasters, leaders. government, the west, politics, land and all that rubbish view that most africans like you want to blame it on.

My visit to India and China attest to the fact that no matter how wealthy you are if you do not match your population with immediate available resources poverty and hunger will kick in.

My visit to eastern Europe during and post communism shows that the people suffered just as much corrupt leadership and bad government but were able to avoid an African-style catastrophe due to their responsible behaviour to have between 1-2 kids and none at all if they cannot afford it.

research shows that black people (african, Caribbean, American, European) are likely to have children first before deciding how to cater for the kids. while white people are likely to consider their financial circumstances before producing children.

Japan needs more children but are not having. On the average, it's declining yearly. Here, we are looking at a situation where robots would replace most of human functions.
I personally do not support bringing humans to this world, anywhere.
