For ages, Africa existed in harmony with herself; with her flora and fauna. So natural was the relationship that some visitors conveniently assumed the people to be a part of it.
They, experiencing the pangs and pains of over-exploited homelands were easily taken by the continents grandeur. Unable to help themselves, they charmed their way into the hearts of their welcoming hosts. They would, unfortunately, overstay their welcome. Charm soon gave way to sly that was soon overun by a forceful takeover. Worse, they managed to instill a culture of individualism over the sustainable extended family.
Any proud warrior who resisted this insane incursion was mowed down the very same way Mama was stripped of her beauty and resource. As fate would have it, however, the monster Greed, simply refused to be contained.
Soon, the sport hunters were fighting over crumbs. Thankfully, the 'fools' also realised their folly and reclaimed their dignity and rightful inheritance-it was not without the spill of blood, sweat, and tears.
That age is long gone and Africa is gradually and painstakingly regaining her majesty. Even as she claws for her spot at the global table, the old yet sustainable practices must be re-employed. She must, for starters, tell her own story. This page is the pioneer declaration of undying love of Africa by a black African. The tale begins in East Africa, Kenya. You are all welcome in the walk!
