This is news. Reminder: Thomas Sankara was known as the Che Guevara of Africa—he was a Marxist revolutionary who liberated Burkina Faso from imperial rule & embarked on a radical program to uplift millions of Africans in his country...until he was murdered by his no.2, this guy..
The highest level of HYPOCRISY: When Brits wanted to leave the EU🇪🇺 the UK government 🇬🇧 held a #Referendum Now the Biafrans want to leave Nigeria 🇳🇬 & the same UK gov supply weapons & training their footsoldiers to kill biafrans. pic.twitter.com/KqnPIA4cHl
Legend has it that the late Ghana's president J. Rawlings having sniffed whims of a coupe warned Sankara but he said Blaise was his friend n if he chose to kill him, so be it. On the D day, he told the rest,"Don't panic, I know they've come for me,"
My daughter is named for Sankara. I cant wait to make a pilgrimage to Burkina Faso with her to visit his hometown and grave site. As for Compaoré, his stolen wealth must be recuperated and his influenced neutralized. Im not confidant that the current system will lead to justice.
سانكارا كان عدو فرنسا الكولونيالية فعمل على استصلاح الأراضي وتحقيق الاكتفاء الذاتي للتحرر من الاستعمار. وكان عدو النظام القبلي فمنع ختان الإناث وتعدد الزوجات. وكان عدو الجهل فبنى المدارس والمراكز الصحية وأطلق حملات تلقيح. فرنسا مسؤولة عن قتل سانكارا وعن قتل شعب وعن قتل قارّة.
Skeptics have argued that most successful African leaders are often stooges to foreign powers. Historical antecedents and confessions by former CIA agents have often corroborated this assertion. Leaders who refuse to be used by these powers are one way or the other ‘removed’ 1/3
Imagine what Burkina Faso could have achieved if Thomas Sankara had lived! Socialist Revolutions need to be tough because the west will always hire parasites like Blaise to kill progressives and therefore hope.
