#AfricanLivesMatter I think like you all ,as a child I never enjoyed or wanted to take bitter medicine. I suspect that you - like me- loved all the deadly stuff like sweets & fizzy drinks ,especially Coke. You may have loved fast food & adding salt to your food too. That's life!
#AfricanLivesMatter As you grow and mature as well as study , you quickly realise the cost of sugar & salt to your health and quality of life. BUT there are a lot more people in fast-food shops than there are in health shops & vegan restaurants. Fast food& fizzy still rules
#AfricanLivesMatter Life is like that . The moral, ethical, intellectual and substantive stuff ( healthy food) is never going to be as popular as social, political or economic fast food & fizzy . The love of life lived fast ,easy & showy is always going to be more popular
#AfricanLivesMatter The paradox of poverty ,deprivation & underdevelopment is that - without critical consciousness- it embraces a false consciousness that views redemption in having "THINGS" as opposed to transformation of systems that produce poverty, inequality & exclusion
#AfricanLivesMatter The reason why Prophets & Celebrities are more appealing is conversely related to two factors :
1. The mistaking of having THINGS for BEING fully human,and
2. The failure of society to address INHUMANE conditions of poverty& inequality in practical ways
#AfricanLivesMatter Crowds are fickle and masses also suffer from FOMO(fear of missing out).Crowds have a LOTTO psyche "One day is One Day",the potential for a lucky break. Hence the Fake it until you Make it culture.Those who lack try hard to associate with those who have things
#AfricanLivesMatter Life is modelled , as is leadership, power, riches and happiness. Ask yourself why villagers in rural areas wake up everyday and wear suits or jackets in all that sweltering heat ? And a tie on a torn collar ? The appearance of wellbeing and success consumes
#AfricanLivesMatter You can be deceived and also deceive yourself by believing that crowds love you . No , they love you in a particular position and in possession of particular things . If you lose your THINGS, power&position, you'll also lose the crowds .Simple ,it won't work
#AfricanLivesMatter Ultimately in life ,a fool with THINGS or POWER will be respected and listened to more than a wise man with NOTHING and no POWER. The genius of our time is he or she that can marry CELEBRITY, COURAGE, POWER, WEALTH, WISDOM, INTEGRITY & INTELLECT.
#AfricanLivesMatter He or she that owns a lot of cattle&a farm can feed the hungry ,grow food ,get milk & meat, pay lolobolo and do many other things . But he or she that studied agriculture, vet science or animal husbandry knows the science about cropping,dairy & cattle ranching

#AfricanLivesMatter I see a lot of people downtown, in the townships and on social media pictures of protests, parties , club outings and rallies without masks or social distancing . Stop this Foolishness! COVID-19 is real and do not invite the angel of death into your life
#AfricanLivesMatter If - as an African- you have had to deal with any funeral of a COVID-19 victim under the existing COVID-19 protocols ...then you know that this thing is real , emotionally tortuous, psychologically traumatic and simply unfair to friends, family&loved ones
#AfricanLivesMatter Stop acting immortal or playing immune god or goddess . You are human and very much vulnerable to COVID-19.Stop being selfish by having fun at your family, friends, workers & neighbour's expense .Behave wisely & be considerate .No COVID-19 gift for Christmas

#AfricanLivesMatter Before you post anything on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter ,especially of a visual nature ,do think of the longterm consequences for yourself, your children and loved ones. What makes you popular and happy may bring them lifelong shame, pain & ridicule
#AfricanLivesMatter What we decide for ourselves, we -in reality- decide for everyone else in our lives . If you steal from public coffers, engage in corruption, murder ,invoke juju or other spiritual force(good or malevolent) , you set in motion consequences for your loved ones
#AfricanLivesMatter A chap once boasted of having many children by different mothers. He could & had wealth. He died from a freak accident and a third world war erupted amongst his children and the women for what turned out to be- in substance-an average& poorly planned estate

#AfricanLivesMatter If you refer to my tweets since August 2017, I have cautioned friends & foes alike against the lure of overkill ; the danger of uniting men & women that despise each other.I have warned too that "He or she that sins for &with you ,will one day sin against you"
#AfricanLivesMatter Read too when I severally cautioned intellectuals , professionals ,clergy and businessmen against talking more than the stockholders .I repeatedly cautioned against defending stuff that you least understand or don't know .I cautioned against power drunkenness
#AfricanLivesMatter It is true that to truly transform any country you need to assemble teams of often strong personalities that may disagree on many things . But the importance of being principled, honest enough to own your errors and humble enough to receive criticism
