Ok, We’ve Proven Our Worth in Music and Arts Now Let’s go into the Sciences

After almost 5 years I pulled out my Sankomota CD which I have stowed away and when I played it I was re-introduced to the soothing sounds of a music group which I believe, together with Stimela, are ahead of many if not all musicians this side on the southern Africa. Sankomota music was composed by music geniuses in the mould of Frank Mooki Leepa and Tshepo Tshola. Franks’s lead guitar proffers the balance and melodic arrangement that the group’s music is renowned for and it is just simply top drawer.

Ray Phiri (affectionately known as Bra Ray) together with his band of astute musicians, his lead guitar also titillates my listening taste and makes me beg for more. Who can forget Jimmy Dludlu with his George Benson-esque strumming of the musical piece, just makes me sit and take seriously the talent that our musicians have and many of whom the instruments they play were self-taught.

The Jews, the most celebrated nation in the world.

The Israelites or Jews are excitedly overjoyed to see other nations praising and magnifying their achievements. It is even more exciting and indeed a remarkable feat for Jews to learn that a rural pastor or priest from Cofimvaba in the Eastern Cape or Ravhele in Limpopo, another one from Harare or Lagos or Malawi, are singing praises about Abraham and Moses and even encouraging their congregations to ‘march to Jerusalem’.

In any form of communication there has to be the sender of the message, the medium over which the message is relayed and the receiver or recipient. This is a simple principle of communication.

The form of communication between the universe and The Executive Authority is a spiritual communication. This is an intricate and often misunderstood concept. How can a planet communicate or does it communicate at all? If we agree that planets were created, then it should follow that some sort of communication must exist  and should be maintained with its creator.

What if?

I believe by now the liberation of black people from white rule and attainment of political freedom (independence) since the late 1950’s in Africa should by now have prepared African people to rule and effectively take charge of their lives.

South Africa’s political freedom in 1994 also should have made it possible for majority of blacks to enjoy liberation from poverty, economic strife and led to prosperity. Yet we see the attainment of independence in Africa and freedom in South Africa having brought more challenges to the incumbent leadership, past and present. Wasn’t liberation from slavery, colonialism and apartheid expected to have brought victory and prosperity to Africans? What if it didn’t?
