While prevarications prevail among Africans who always wait for everything to be done and handed to them on platter of gold by the western worlds, some African leaders have taken some initiative of thinking outside the box and acting upon reality to salvage and handle challenges rather than wait in vein for solution that may never come from people who are also fighting their own demons.
From experience and assessment of the average African and the way our head is wired, our challenge is not always that we cannot do anything for ourselves, but the major problem is that our minds is so configured to believe that we cannot do anything for ourselves except it is approved from certain quarters of the Globe.
But somehow, the outbreak of Coronavirus has taught the world that idea is not a commodity of monopoly as wisdom transcends all over the world in quantum.
With Madagascar to be the first to produce herbs that not only cure Coronavirus, but also prevent people from contracting it, they have proven that Africa can do more for herself when she start believing more in herself.
Meanwhile, while many Africa countries are waiting for vaccine to be created by the western world so that it will become another money making venture for themselves and their cronies, few leaders that believe in ingenuity of Africa like Umaro Sissoco Embalo of Guiné-Bissau and leaders of Ghana, DRC, Senegal, etc had taken initiative and endorsed the herb.
To prove that a good leader thinks about his people first, General Umaro Sissoco Embalo has taken it a step further by sending The Minister of Defense and Freedom Fighters of the Fatherland, Guinea Bissau, General Sandji Fati, to Antananarivo capital of Madagascar as Special Envoy of the Guinean Head of State to among other engagements, meet with his Malagasy counterpart, Andrey Ranjoelina. The mission is simple, to get the order of medicine produced in that African country of the Indian Ocean that has been a success in the treatment of COVID-19 Pandemic.
President Umaro Sissoco Embaló has asked for the Malagasy medicines for the prevention and treatment of COVID-19 for several West African countries in the name of true regional integration.
Meanwhile, Several African countries have already ordered COVID ORGANICS TAMBAVY and the Malagasy state has distributed the medicine free of charge to her population.
The arrival of the shipment of COVID ORGANICS TAMBAVY to Bissau is scheduled for Friday.
This is how true leader are tested.
