In this authoritative piece, Professor Kaluya castigates fellow Africans, especially the leaders and intellectuals of the African continent to understand how significant BACKWARDNESS has remained a major aspect in holding the continent in the dark. He traces the level of African backwardness from an African societal perspective that failed to inherit the fundamental truths, to enhance a creative and effective developmental scope started off by the Stone Age. The level of BACKWARDNESS in Africa is further stagnated by increased dependence of Africans on their former colonial masters and donors who today continue to hold the continent at ransom, through foreign aid offers and collaboration with African leaders to sustain their economies on mostly foreign aid. Above all, the fall of the Berlin wall in German to unite the east and west is the setting of this piece, and offers Africans and their leaders an opportunity to audaciously look forward and revolutionalize the continent back into the hands of the African people.
