Last week, some French doctors drew outrage when they suggested that a Coronavirus vaccine should be tested in Africa first.
For a rebuttal, Didier Drogba and Samuel Eto would speak up. Therein lies the problem with the entire issue.
Africans are always the ones who go into a gunfight with a knife. We choose feelings over intellect and then complain rather than reflect when we lose.
The rest of the world focuses on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) while Africans are focussed on Religion, Entertainment, Sports and Tradition (REST).
As a result of this, the whole world keeps making progress while we Africans remain behind but demand to be treated with respect.
If anyone should have answered, it should have been an African doctor, not men whose only contribution to the universe was the chasing of a round ball for 90 minutes.
Since we are all going to fool around, please let me present my own vaccine.
