Dr. Arikana Chihombori was dismissed from her position as African Union Ambassador to the United States of America under unclear conditions. Since this unexpected dismissal, a persistent theory has emerged: it would be dismissed for its very critical positions towards Western politics in Africa in general, and French in particular. One might be tempted to say that this is based on conspiracy theory, but other past examples (the case of Togolese Kakpo Nubukpo) lead us to take a serious look at the latter case. Did Dr. Chihombori fail in his duty? Is what she denounced defamation? Is the answer simply “no”! Then why did the AU fire her? Answer: A certain African elite at the head of our institutions have bat syndrome. Like this attytic animal, this elite constantly urinates on itself, it sees the world from the perspective of the bat. Let’s see Dr. Chihombori’s sins.
1st sin: the denunciation of the Berlin conference
The Berlin conference was held from 15 November 1884 to 26 February 1885. It was in the name of God that the conference was held. In the general act, it read: “In the name of Almighty God, His Majesty the Emperor of Germany, King of Prussia, His Majesty the Emperor of Austria, King of Bohemia, etc.., and Apostolic King of Hungary, His Majesty the King of Belgium, His Majesty the King of Denmark, His Majesty the King of Denmark, His Majesty the King of Spain, the President of the United States of America, the President of the French Republic, His Majesty the Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, Empress of India, His Majesty the King of Italy, His Majesty the King of the Netherlands, Grand Duke of Luxembourg, etc, His Majesty the King of Portugal and the Algarves, etc., His Majesty the Emperor of all Russias, His Majesty the King of Sweden and Norway, etc., and His Majesty the Emperor of the Ottomans”. As you can see, no African country, empire or kingdom is included. And yet, Africa was the exclusive focus of the conference. It is to this conference that we owe the continent raped, torn and torn apart like a corpse after the passage of hundreds of hungry vultures. The Berlin conference divided families, villages, cities, countries, kingdoms, empires, nations in Africa. Colonization ended what the Berlin conference began.
2nd sin: the denunciation of colonization
When reading the items on the agenda during the Berlin conference, the second item on the agenda was: “Declaration on the slave trade”. One might think that the powers gathered in Berlin at the time were concerned about the well-being of the peoples of Africa who became slaves. In reality, this chapter is a sex mask, which unfortunately barely masks the true purpose of vultures around the table in Berlin. The proof: a laconic article salt is devoted to this major issue for the peoples of Africa. Let’s read together: “Article 9. In accordance with the principles of international law, as recognized by the Signatory Powers, the slave trade being prohibited, and operations which, on land or at sea, supply slaves to the trade to be also considered prohibited, the Powers exercising or to be exercising sovereignty or influence in the territories forming the conventional basin of the Congo declare that these territories may not serve as a market or transit route for the slave trade, of any race whatsoever. Each of these Powers undertakes to use all the means in its power to put an end to this trade and to punish those who deal with it. “What looks like an act of humanity is in fact an act of capitalist economy and extreme right-wing racism. First of all, economic, because the industrialization of Europe and America has made men’s work less profitable in both parts of the world. The West no longer needed the labour power and know-how of Blacks at home, but rather the raw materials and labour power of Blacks in Africa. Africans were thus made slaves at home. They will work under the beating of whips, boots and spit. Racism then, because the West did not want too many blacks on its territory. Since their muscles and skills were not important, too many blacks would pose a problem for white supremacy. What was a fact in 1885 in the West, is still a fact today. One only has to look at the treatment of African migrants in Europe to see this.
The life of the populations, the well-being of the African peoples were the least of the Western conqueror’s concerns. The most prominent example is the Kongo. In this region, the central object of the Berlin conference, women and men were mutilated, children kidnapped, women raped, women and men beheaded to install terror and force people to produce rubber free of charge for Western industry in the name of the civilizing mission. In southern Africa, more precisely in Namibia, the Germans experienced the first concentration camps of humanity there. The Herero people have lost their essence there. All over Africa, people have been burned, killed and looted. Everything has been razed to the ground.
The real issue was the sharing of Africa and its conquest by the powers gathered in Berlin by all means. Denouncing colonization is a sign of mental balance.
3rd sin: the denunciation of neo colonization
Elites affected by bat syndrome are shouting from the rooftops that Africa has been decolonized and that it would be in control of its destiny. When a healthy mind, such as Dr. Arikana Chihombori, tries to straighten them up, to put them upright, so that they stop urinating on them, the elite bats pull up and deliver them to the wolves. “Everything is fine. We drive luxury cars. We have several villas. We have accounts in Switzerland. We go abroad for treatment when we are sick. Our children are in private schools and universities. So what’s the problem? What is this evil witch talking about? “wonders the African bat-elect perplexed. And yet, if the elite bat looked upright, she would understand that her perspective allows her to see the top of the pyramid. She sees herself and others. The major part is the one Dr. Arikana Chihombori sees. From this perspective, she sees before her eyes the misdeeds of neocolonization symbolized by the CFA franc and an area formed by the former French colonies. These countries are all classified as countries with a low Human Development Index. Also, Niger, Central African Republic, Mali, Burkina Faso are among the lowest ranked countries. Niger closes the podium. Why is this index indicative of France’s disaster in Africa? The countries mentioned are countries with very strong mining potential. Unfortunately, the exploitation of these resources benefits exclusively France and the bat elite. France’s incestuous ally. Africans are led to believe that mining resources are a curse. Yet Norway, at the top of the ranking, owes its abundance to its natural resources. But the elite bat is unable to draw inspiration from positive examples. She fights and kills herself over the crumbs of her own cake instead of getting together to pull the cake out of the thief’s clutches.
Criticizing French neo-colonialism, Dr. Arikana Chihombori urges the African elite to stand up, to emerge from its prolonged lethargy in order to change the situation. Countries like France, big profiteers of African sleep, do not like people like Dr. Arikana Chihombori too much. This great lady’s criticisms are well-founded. The situation in the former colonies of France is enough to shut the door on any elite bat. Unfortunately, it is underestimating the depth of evil.
4th sin: the call for the return of the black diaspora to Africa
Dr. Arikana Chihombori’s appeal to the black diaspora to return and take its place in Africa is a major sin. After centuries of brainwashing scientifically planned by the West to oppose Africa to its diaspora victim of the tragedy of slavery, the AU ambassador to the USA doing her job is trying to break this evil work. She tries to explain to black Americans that their parents who stayed in Africa did not sell them; that those who stayed in Africa suffered under colonization and/or are still suffering under neocolonization today from slavery or economic repression by the West. Thanks to this speech, more and more blacks from the diaspora are taking the step of returning their ancestors to the land. If the African ruling elite had a perspective on the place, Dr. Arikana Chihombori would deserve a very special decoration. This would be done in a normal world. But the African Union seems to have a bat perspective.
