Instancing the holocaust on the back of corruption
Under the heading ‘QUO VADIS AFRICA’ we observed that as a result of neo-colonialistic isometric corruption inroads into African continent, in contradiction to CAADP and AfCFTA protocols that seek to keep Africa united, among other African Union-related protocols, we have still not set our parliaments focused on continental image and integrity, including developmental counterpoise. Are our parliaments irrelevant against hunger-stricken masses of Africa? If so, whose fault is it? We need to exercise self-introspection. Africans are driven out of their continent by hunger and poverty, all because we are failing to develop our own agricultural resources towards productivity; instead we let neo-colonialists to feed us out of our own resources. Our people are drowning like flies in the Mediterranean Sea-Off the coast of Libya, which has become our main cemetery. Some of us have lost count over the recent past. Africans are prepared to risk their lives and perish in the sea over home turf starvation and hunger, to eke out a living in Europe. Na hase eona holocaust ee? Mona Lesotho re bona Basotho ba khetha ho nkoa ke noka ea Mohokare. Ho neng? Lebaka ke tlala ea `ma-boomo. Ha motho a sa sebetse o hloka chelete ea ho reka lijo. Empa eona mesebetsi e ka tlisoa ke ho lokisetsa maraka ea lijo. LENAFU has to become an effective platform for efficacious dialogue around agro-industrial value-chain. We have enunciated CAADP protocol pillars of thematic areas: Extending the area under sustainable land management and reliable water management systems. Improving rural infrastructure and trade related capacities for improved market access. Increasing food supply, reducing hunger, and improving responses to food emergency. Improving agricultural research, technology dissemination and adoption. Over and above the four pillars we have to dialogue around my suggested extra pillar within LENAFU. Installing resolute remedialisation of cross-cutting corruption-concatenation against developmentresource use through regulatory framework. I sincerely believe that African countries must review the thematic pillars, functionalise them through the above suggested addition in order to curb ongoing holocaust and intra-Africa destabilising emigration from one country to the next. Le kajeno ke lumela hore “Sera sa motho ke bobolu, eseng tlala”. Tlala ke semela sa leshokhoa le bitsoang bobolu.
