Civil Wars

Yesterday, we,… some of us, Malagasy people voted for a new Constitutional Referendum for a 4th Republic, YES or NO. We don’t have yet the final result, but so far, the YES win … I’ve never been interested in politics, but in everything you do or want to do, policital power have a significant impact on your activity which makes you, involotary, involved in politics.

It just happened that yesterday also, there were a documentary about Africa on one of our national TV channel, it was about Africa’s History during the 40’s till the 70’s. How disappointed and sad I was  when I discovered that just after each fight for independancy of each country, there were civil wars. African were so proud to be independant, changed their country names, but then for what? a civil war ? Let’s say they didn’t foresee that it made many civil victims, caused famine that killed many innocents, traumatised families due to tortures and witnessing extrem violences, and the worst,  stole kids childhood with their “child soldier”. Those  so called “people’s leader”, “country lovers” praise democracy and liberty. In fact, all they care is how to maintain their power and how to steal money from their country, no matter the consequences for the population and the future generation.

CIVIL WARS

Then, I realize that all movies about Africa such as 

  • Blood Diamond (Leonardo DiCaprio, Djimon Hounsou) nominated for 5 Oscars – based on Civil War in Sierra Leone (1996-1999),
  • Hotel Rwanda” (Don Cheadle) nominated for 3 oscars – based on Civil War (1990-1993) and Genocide 1994,
  • Tears of the sun” (Bruce Willis, Monica Bellucci) – based on Civil War in Nigeria (1967-1970),  … those are still far from reality.

I am ashamed. Why ask for independancy if it is to kill each others after ?

    Compare to other countries Madagascar is very different. I am not from Madagascar but during my work I come across some facts of Madagascar. People here are really democratic and leaders also. Yes there are many mis-understandings but I feel the solution will come out peacefully.
