Why oh Why...

.
"...do I love Africa?
.

.
Because we are all related.

All Africans are brothers and sisters

Biologically,

wherever you are from in Africa, we are related.

In Africa if you are from the same house

- you are related,

from the same village
.
- you are related;

from the same country

- you are related.

Even from the same regional grouping like west,
.
east, north and southern Africa

- we are related

- as long as you are an African,

we are all related.

We refer to each other as brother and sister in Africa.

We do not have cousin or nieces

- all we have are brothers and sisters.

That is why I love Africa..."
