The Preamble

My dear followers. This is to notify you that I will be presenting a ground-breaking scholarly paper Africography: Metaphysics, Historiography and Decolonisation at the College of Human Sciences’ Decolonisation Conference at Unisa (University of South Africa) in Pretoria on Tuesday August 7, 2018 (see Decoloniality Conference Prog V02 university programme of the conference). Let me give you an analytical sense of appreciation about Africography.

About Africography

Africography is a revolutionary methodology of knowledge production and validation that I began developing at the laboratories of the School of Computer Science of Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada. This is a metascientific knowledge producing and analytical system based on the value systems of ancient African cosmology which infused me with endless effervescence as a logical negation of the Canadian WASP (White Anglo Saxon Protestant) and Eurocentric ontic (ontology) and epistemic (epistemology) systems…

In his book The Philosophy of History, the German philosopher George Hegel says that the Africans did not contribute and are not capable of contributing to world civilisation. George Hegel is the greatest source of influence in the Western intellectual tradition having influenced intellectual giants like Karl Marx.

The idea that the African descendants have not contributed anything to World civilisation is a dangerous one because the African child will grow up thinking that the African ancestors were consumers of other people’s ideas instead of being producers of new knowledge. This status quo, if left unchallenged, perpetuates the myth that an African has not and cannot contribute novel ideas to the scientific body of knowledge…

From Heroism to the great betrayals: Southern Africa is still a colony

Angazi nokuthi ngiqalephi … the rage one feels regarding the Zulu King’s recent statements and his decision to join hands with a right leaning racist white political formation called AfriForum is palpable. Yet, if one understand the history of Southern Africa and how apartheid was established and how colonialism installed its own loyal people to oversee the land and its people, it is easy to rationally conclude that the king is still being used, whether he knows it or not. South Africa is a strange place of multifarious paradoxes.

I don’t even know where to begin …the sheer betrayal of trust that Afrikan leaders, including kings have exhibited towards us is beyond my ability to contemplate. While I am aware of how white supremacy uses folks against each other,employing all kinds of devices to turn governments against their own people, states against traditional leaders as well as customary leaders against their “subjects”; the things that are happening in South Afrika right now are just too much to bear.

Let us briefly examine a few key players in the land, farming and socio-political climate of  the entity called South Africa. We shall begin with the roles of traditional leaders, then and now. We shall then analyse just what purpose they serve in the so called developmental state, as the Republic of South Africa purports to be one.
