Did  Lord Macaulay uttered these words

Controversy! Nevertheless here is what I have to say.

Borrowing the supposed words of British Historian and whig politician Lord Macaulay, Africa is a wealthy continent rid of thieves and beggars. Interestingly only a few Africans are conscious of this. Indeed, we have sat down for oppressors and evil rulers to define and reshape our destinies. They erased our history and diluted our culture while we watched helplessly. Maybe we can’t get back the history that was taken away from us through western education but we can certainly revisit the roots of our culture and safeguard it against western ideologies and principles. Hopefully, the future generation of Africa would have no option than to narrate the history and exhibit the culture written by Africans.

    It is very sad to view the constant efforts of reducing Africans to mediocracy. Despite all their hard work, studies and determination. White people always focus on the goal. To take everything Africans are and have. It si indeed spirit breaking.
