Ref: BBC News, London, Tuesday 15 July 2014, “Man claims African land for daughter to become princess”


Not as outlandish as it may appear! That’s indeed how the European World often conquered and occupied African territory  in the past – until about a hundred years to the day, as it embarked on its 1914-1918 war. Nations, peoples and states in Africa were targeted and seized by all sorts from Europe to plunder in the name of the monarch and the crown or the republic (France!) back home. The outcome? The genocidist inchoate assemblages strewn around presently tagged Nigeria, Niger, Chad, the Sudan, the Central African Republic, Zaïre/the Democratic Republic of the Congo, etc., etc. History, it seems, continues to project itself almost inexorably...
