Happenings In North Africa - Return of Colonialists

The reconstituted Council of Kwame Nkrumah Ideological Institute (KNII) has asked African Leaders to be on the look out for the return of the Colonialists in the light of what was happening in North Africa. A statement signed by Mr Ben Anyagre, Secretary to the Council of the newly re-registered KNII, said Western nations were acting as good Samaritans, who were out to protect civilians but their main aim was to re-colonise independent African nations. It said: “Colonel Moamar Gardafi of Libya and Laurent Gbagbo of Cote d’Ivoire are victims of the neo-colonialists because they are seen to be inclined to Osagyefo’s ideologies,” and stressed the need to perpetuate the ideology through the training of the youth both in Africa and the Diaspora. The statement said Osagyefo warned about the return of the Colonialists 40 years ago so what was happening in North Africa should be seen in that context. It urged African Leaders to be careful in their dealings with imperialist countries and said it was in anticipation of these developments, that Osagyefo called for the Union of African States and establishment of an African High Command, but these were rejected. KNII asked the African Union “to wake up from its slumber” and stop the Western world from their “shameful deeds”.
