The late African Presidents such as Julius Kambarage Nyerere, Nelson Mandela, Kwame Nkrumah and others declared the devastating war against poverty, ignorance, and other miseries. Their wise words, visions, and actions paved a way for a new Africa.These poems portray their paramount wisdom and knowledge that enrich nowadays generations. They fought enemies of African development and prosperity; they believed Africa can shine more than the stars.

The following is an extract of the poem, 'Africa and Ignorance.'

Perhaps, Africa and ignorance,
Are enemies and best friends at once,

Many times, Africa acts in ignorance,
Its citizens get hurt in tolerance,

Maybe, Africa has a lifelong love affair with ignorance,
Because I don't see a serious severance,

Since then, my Africa fell asleep,
A sleepyhead land, who will wake it up?

Some Africans are far to the limit of ignorance,
Should they say no or be submissive to ignorance?

I hope you have enjoyed this description. Grab your copy and have fun.
