Bill Gates finally open up saying that Africans should permit the testing the vaccine on them as they can’t come up with one.
This is what he said;
I was angry after i heard of the move to test vaccines on Africans but after much thoughts, my mind changed. There’s this African proverb that says “that a twine that grows out of the wood and start growing on the footpaths should expect to be matched upon.” Do you know that Sani Abacha’s loots alone can sponsor 40 researches in Africa. the whites have invested the money to produce the vaccine and now you expect them to test it out on their people, you must be joking. Station your anger to something else.
Just take a look at Congolese president, he has accepted that the vaccine be tested in his country and that is because he does not have a choice. If you can’t sing, you must be ready to dance but if you can’t dance as well, you should at least clap your hands or movr your head to the rhythm. If you can’t produce the vaccine, and you choose not to sponsor your people to produce one, then you must subdue yourself to have the vaccine tested in your country.
America have put out grants to aid their scientists carry out research on the virus to come up with a cure. Now ask yourself this, Have you ever seen or heard of any African billionaire sponsoring any research or scientific innovation in Africa without his own belle in front of everything? Never! But during election periods, they give fortunes to political parties. Which is more important, research and technology innovation or political parties? Be sincere in your answers. Will you test your vaccine on someone who is sponsoring your research? No way. These scientists value their people because their people value them.
the african people do not have value for their own scientists. When being funded properly, many African scientists will produce a better vaccine and cure for Corona virus more than their foreign counterparts but our leaders will never do that. They will rather want us to be slaves to foreign powers. That was why they killed Thomas Sankara. Read about that man and understand that Africans still have a long way to go.
What do you have to say about what billgates said of Africa?
Do you think he is right
