By Mammo Muchie, DSI/NRF Rated SARChI Professor, TUT, Pretoria, South Africa (www.sarchi.org) Inspiration Mathematics may not teach us how to add happiness or how to minus sadness. But it does teach one important thing. Every Problem has a solution” (Anonymous)
“Ethiopia as Africa has a unique distinction in the universe for empowering those that were disempowered, for humanising those that were dehumanised, spiritualising those that were denied their right to worship God and inspiring and strengthening those oppressed to resist oppression”. Mammo Muchie
II Appeal to All Africans to Value and Cherish Unity
Who is an African was discussed at the 50th year anniversary of the OAU, and the 10th anniversary of the African Union, AU. There is no such thing as an essential African identity that has been frozen in time. African identity should be expressed through a rejection of racism, ethnicity, parochialism, exclusivity and barbarism. African identity must be inclusive, non-essentialist and emancipatory without any fracturing of Africans with language, gender, race, color, region, district, religion, clan, caste and any and all other differences. Let us all be African and human to reject all these divisions. Africa of all places in the universe is the exemplary model for developing the value for all to appreciate one humanity to live in one world universal community in spite of any differences.
Let the human consciousness of a person determine who is an African, not ethnicity, tribe, language, religion and all other difference that must be appreciated but to celebrate our one humanity by not using any differences to divide, to fight and kill. The human consciousness of all must be acknowledged, valued and celebrated to promote all to live as one humanity in one world community with full peace, safety and security.
Let us all agree to put Africa first to make humanity first.
The following are required to make African unity and humanity to prevail over all the fracturing ethnic and tribal divisions that have still not been resolved to shape the free, independent and secure African future and destiny.
Quality leadership for creating, planning, managing and performing effective public service founded on workable and agreed principles of governance, moral, emotional, social, psychological and intellectual intelligence with full honesty, sincerity, integrity and humility to fix the destiny of Africa
Re-develop development and re-innovate innovation and revivie Indigenous Knowledge from the exclusion of the education system from kindergareten to tertiary university levels all over Africa without any exception.
Do not call some Africans as relatives and others as aliens
Make Africa-philia (love) replace all- the divide and rule saga that turn the African to live with conflict rather than full peace and security s
Africans are the original creators of humans, knowledge and spirituality. Let all Africans learn and know they are the originators and bring back the excluded and rejected knowledge, humanity and spirituality to make all Africans value the treasures to live decent lives with full pride, grace, kindness and dignity
Africa must reject totally others imposing their superiority making our people to feel inferior.
Africa can reject it by showing there is no justification to continue any form of inferiority by all Africans coming together showing the necessity to recognize full equality
To build with the cherished rich African value of Ubuntu ’one in all and all in one’ African humanity to live as family
All Africans must put above all else safety, security, peace and togethernes as the priority and not be side –tracked with self-interest and money
Let all Africans stop pricing everything and valuing nothing by removing division and classifications on religion, gender, race, ethnicity, caste, class and any differences
Let all Africans learn how to care and share with full collaboration and trust with one another by knowing how to agree even when they disagree without any conflict and fight
Let all Africans learn to apply the relativity with the speed of Light Square their African Humanity-philia by removing ever the gravity burden of war, disunity, divisions, misusing differences and all conflicts entirely all over Africa.
Let All Africans end the problems of unending poverty, inequality and unemployment with additive and multiplicative wellbeing for all the people.
Let Africa revive indigenous knowledge to deal with climate change by creating social innovation and social entrepreneurship to achieve sustainable development with human wellbeing and nature safety (https://sarchi.org/jcise/
Let all Africans unite the to contribute ending the global COVID-19 Pandemic
Let Africans handle surveillance capitalism which is connected to cybercrime and awash with social media using digitalisation in the current time.
Many conflicts still exist in Africa when there should be no war if we value killing humans is hurting the creator who brought them to this world and should take them when the time comes. To kill them is also to hurt the creator. Let no African be killed by anyone.
There must be an All Africa Humanity, One Africa Community Day (AAHOACD) that the over 1.7 billion African people must respect: No More wars, no army, no theft, and no killing of any human-being anywhere in Africa for the pursuit of power and self- interest at the expense of human wellbeing and planet earth safety.
Let us create the All One African Humanity in One Africa Community Education Commission with the inclusion of the excluded indigenous knowledge, spiritually, tradition and struggle heritages and all generated from the origin of humanity by our African ancestors.
Africa must create a development and innovation pathway by unifying the health, wellbeing, the social, economic, knowledge production value chain process to sustain both people and nature wellbeing
Re-design the education of Science, Technology, Innovation, Mathematics and Engineering (STEM) with the rich traditional knowledge invented by our ancestors like the genius of geniuses Imhotep, whom I recognise as the Einstein of Einstein.
Let us also use traditional medicine and knowledge to deal with the current pandemic to find advanced solutions to prevent rather than now running all over to find vaccines to cure endemics, epidemics and pandemics created by the economic system that de-values our rich African associational human relations and values individualistic and self-interested money seekers. Let us learn how the Chinese use traditional medicine and managed one of them to achieve Nobel Prize for curing malaria with traditional medicine.
People empowering public service performers and reformers and not public masters is what leadership Africa must replace all the corruption that bamboozles all in Africa
Leadership, governance, institutions and systems must make the wellbeing and the health of the people and nature to become the priority of priorities
Africa must have Systems, governance, institutions and leadership to be managed with honesty, sincerity, humility and integrity
Let Africa have sustainable, fully integrated innovative development with the One Africa Humanity day, the Pan-African Education commission and celebrating the coming 60 years from the OAU founded in 1963 to the OAU/AU in 2023.
A brand New an All African Humanity Serving Philosophy Modules to re-educate all in the world to value humans to be treated not as strangers but as one human family with no more war, military and all needless costly livelihood forever to save people and the planet earth.
Let us develop the indigenous knowledge courses and the courses that bring total unity with modules of Mama Africa Humanity Philosophy Module, I, II, II, IV, V by starting from kindergarten to tertiary=y level by using as many languages as possible.
All languages can be included for indigenous knowledge training with the Inclusive African Indigenous Language Technology Institute working on it
Indigenous knowledge inclusion must be done in all schools all over Africa. https://www.aflits.instiute/com
III: Concluding Remarks
Finally let humanity move from the physical world to the digital exponential world and enter into the knowledge social economy with a smart, integrated and sustainable innovative world with full justice, peace and security entirely freed from any war anywhere. Let making the one humanity family creation become the grand job for all to be done with commitment and inspiration with universally inclusive sustainable development to build the one and only one all humanity in one and only one united world universal community. Let all those who are in the United Nations value ‘One Humanity in one united World Community’ and remove all wars and conflicts forever to make the United Nations truly united and not distracted as it has been going on since its foundations the different members in it continuing going to war. Let the United Nation members all understand if they are members of the United Nations, they must never go to war. They must learn to resolve any difference with peaceful direct engagement with no hurt and damage to anyone. Let all countries in the world create the required science to make the future to be anchored by drawing lessons from the mistakes of the past and the present to develop human life with full decent wellbeing and nature with full and sustainable safety and security. Science requires the production and application of much needed relevant and novel knowledge and imagination to end all wars and conflicts to bring peace, reconciliation, social justice, safety, health and security without excluding all people from any part of the world. A humane universal world is much needed urgently for bringing the full inclusion of all humans and nature without using any exclusion by using geography, climate, language, religion, clan, caste, race, language, gender, age and all other differences including the unresolved inequalities, poverty, unemployment, conflicts, wars, marginalization and environmental degradations.
