Today we celebrate Africa Day. It's the day of fiery speeches, African cuisines and attire. We'll be romanticizing the past and glorifying the unknown future because we are fearful to face the monsters terrifying us today. We are afraid to say Africa is a captive of foreigners.
“I am proudly African.I couldn’t be prouder to be from such a beautiful and enriched continent. Being able to represent our continent on the world stage is something I don’t take lightly. To all my Africans around the world, Happy Africa Day” said Al Ahly head coach Pitso Mosimane.
The leader of the Citizens Coalition For Change Party in Zimbabwe Mr Nelson Chamisa said“The legacy of Our founding fathers and the liberation generation in Africa is at risk without the effort of Africa’s young and new generation of leaders. Africa will be saved by two things; leadership and entrepreneurship. Happy Africa day”
The Economic Freedom Fighters Twitter page posted:”EFF marks the 59th Anniversary of Africa Day.Let us remain unrepentant in fighting for the removal of all colonial borders, for free movement, trade and access to African markets by Africans, and for true emancipation from those who seek to keep Africa in a state of juniority”
