Who’s fault is it that an American ‘wannabee’ President as Donald Trump would boldly talk down on African presidents? His or the continent’s? The 69-year old Republican candidate for President of the United States 2016, is known for his loud mouth, however, he has spoken some facts which are not far from the truth about Nigerian leadership and that of Kenya, although he said them without adding a touch of diplomacy to it.
During one of his unedited speeches, Donald Trump said leaders of African countries steal money from the country’s purse and invest them in foreign countries for their personal gain. He then cited Nigeria and Kenya as practical examples. Donald also thinks that some of these African countries lack civilization and leadership skills, and in his opinion, deserve to be recolonized, maybe this time by him.
“Look at African countries like Nigeria or Kenya for instance, those people are stealing from their own government and go to invest the money in foreign countries. From the government to the opposition, they only qualify to be used as a case study whenever bad examples are required.
How do you trust even those who have run away to hide here in the United States, hiding behind education? I hear they abuse me in their blogs but I don’t care because even the internet they are using is ours and we can decide to switch it off from this side. These are people who import everything including matchsticks.
In my opinion, most of these African countries (like Nigeria) ought to be recolonized again for another 100 years because they know nothing about leadership and self-governance.”

The world has heard more than enough from this determined wannabee president of the United States, who finds pleasure bad-mouthing everyone except himself. He has rained several abusive words on his opponent from the Democratic nomination, Hilary Clinton, calling her all sorts of names, while President Barrack Obama has had a trailer load full of Donald’s disrespectful and indicting statements.
If he can do all that to his president, who stands as a template for him, calling African leaders thieves is not the least expected of him. After 56 years of independence, Nigerian leaders still can’t boast of providing basic amenities such as power supply, water, home-refined petroleum products, good roads, rail, etc, yet the country is among the highest producer of crude oil in Africa. Leaders have become selfish and would rather gather self-wealth than build the country. African leaders do not need more insults from Donald Trump before they give up on the idea of accumulating wealth for their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
