Africans Need to Wake up - OPINION

According to independent research, Africa as a whole will spend $1,7tillion to access vaccines, distribute, and achieve the targeted vaccination population. Thats more than 35% of the continent's GDP. (Side note, total AU GDP is about $2.3trillion and Denmark GDP is also $2.3trillion. Denmark has 6 milion people and Africa has 1.5billion people. Credit to uneven WTO policies)


So what it means is the few countries who have managed to come up with this vaccines will make trillions of dollars from us. Africa is ranked last in world trade with a paltry 5% in total gross trade value. Meaning that the biggest chunk of money and trade is being exchanged amoungst those same countries, who are going to rob us by selling us these vaccinesDo we not have medical researchers of our own who can come up with an African vaccine? Do we not have labs and qualified people to do this? Why must we pay so much money when infact we dont have resources that these people have? Or rather dont we have alternative solutions that are less costly to deal with covid? They are running us dry and what I can guarantee you is China, EU, USA will loan us this money to buy the vaccines from the same people who are loaning us money. Guess who will pay back those loans, our children. We are setting up future generations to be under the burden of debt from these countries, all because our leaders are not bold enough to say we dont need the vaccines we will find solutions on our own.


Africans need to wake up seriously. Whats the use of waiting for solutions from these countries? Do you think they love and care for us? Or its about them making money. They just want to use us, exploit us and make us their slaves through debts. This makes me so angry!
