The Bassa Model Of African Governance
Accepting Africa's past is the beginning of its liberation
Nyanyan Ghon-Manan: History, Migration and Government of the Bassa
For a culture bombarded by discrimination from those ignorant of the past and ravaged by modernity, Somah explains that it is important that customs be preserved and handed down to the next generation. He writes, "For decades, foreign correspondents have done Africa a disservice, purposely presenting African people and their leadership at their worst moment and too rarely presenting these aspects of the people in their full blossom."
Dr. Syrulwa Somah
Ruling heads of state can learn a few pointers from Somah, especially when it comes to overcoming the political troubles of this world. As Somah put it: "By choice, Europeans at their mother's knees have learned to hate Africa and never had to respond to them as people with a legitimate leadership, especially apart from slave history. Such a perception must be confronted if humankind is to humanize politics. For Africans to expose the mindset of those who de-humanize them they must fly as the Sankofa bird. Accepting African past is the beginning to our liberation."
