It is good when a good thing happens. Icheoku hopes that President-elect Barack Obama will help to clubber these African leaders back into their sensibilities so that Africa can finally learn how to take care of its own instead of being the world's "down-syndrome" child with constant needs. It is about time Africa learns how to fish! Look at the other African despots in Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe -( Mugabe seeks new Obama relations ), Egyptian's Mubarak, Gabon's Omar Bongo or Libyan Moummer Qaddafi, who nobody really cares about , yet they cling to power, refusing to yield office for brighter young Obamas of Africa to take over the ship of the state. To hell with these decrepitude dictators in Africa and may their congratulatory messages not be well received or accepted or even acknowledged! They are not sincere and are worthless, coming from despots who trample upon democracy in their respective countries or fiefdoms! Enough of these African "leaders" bullshit! Icheoku says, it is about time change sweep through the African continent so that hope can be restored. Africans say, YES WE CAN!

KENYA'S KIBAKI IS A SHITLESS HYPOCRITE!
While declaring Thursday November 6th, 2008 a public holiday in Kenya to celebrate the election of Barack Obama to the US presidency, Mwai Kibaki said the Kenyan people are immensely proud of Barack Obama's Kenyan roots. According to him, Barack Obama's victory is not only an inspiration to millions of people all over the world, but it has special resonance with Kenyans. To this Icheoku fires back and says, were Mwai Kibaki's to have respected the wish of the Kenyan people in their last election, it would also have resonated with the Kenyan people; but instead he chose to steal a mandate which was denied him in the ballot. Now he is adumbrating and foaming in the mouth about another country where election results are respected. Shame on this shameless anti-democracy Kenyan Mwai Kibaki!
What an irony of fate that such a man as Mwai Kibaki, who does not have regard for real democracy is now wallowing in the euphoria of a President Barack Obama's election victory? Mwai Kibaki should understand that were President George Bush to be like him, there will be no Barack Obama's victory to celebrate as he, Bush would have usurped the presidency of America just like he, Kibaki did in Kenya. Mwai Kibaki refused to respect the Kenyan people's will to yield office despite evidently losing to Odinga. Icheoku therefore says that Mwai Kibaki has no moral standing to be beating his chest about a democracy which respects one of democracy's principal cannon - election results!
All these inveterate African 'leaders' should and must learn one thing from President-elect Barack Obama's election victory - that democracy is sweet if practised well! Can any of them quantify the amount of joy Barack Obama has brought to the world simply by winning the United States of America presidential election? To the Kibaki's of this world, particularly in Africa, Icheoku says, they should stuff their congratulatory messages up their arses until they learn how to respect the will of their own people. Except for Nelson Mandela who described Barack Obama's victory as a sign of hope for everyone; and until recently Mbeki, no other African leader has voluntarily yielded power or allowed an unfettered election to take place in their country; otherwise a lot of Barack Obamas would have risen in Africa to take Africa to its own promised land. But when tired and time-worn out senile old men perpetuate themselves in power, nothing moves forward as they continue to go round and round in a perpetual all motion and no movement Merry-go-round. And you wonder why Africa is the bottom-pot of all things negative in this world - wars, hunger, under-development, disease etc. These supposed leaders are out of ideas and their stage presence is since over! They have all overstayed and have since become boring. Their facial make-up not withstanding, their tired bones are manifest by the stale ideas which they propagate.
