That aside, and looking at the traditional African society, we had systems that were predominantly matriarchal and that was the norm.Many villages were led by women officially and this was not even something new or strange. When the europeans came over and started plundering our resources they also stole our culture and replaced it with their backward ideologies.The idea of equality did not exist in Africa before because there was a power balance that considered each and every member of society. It actually did not matter what gender you are, the responsibilities were clearly spelt out and he core interest was always the community at large.Today, that may not be the case. The west still controls most parts of the Africa and the people in power are just puppets who take advantage of the situation and rob from the people. Selfishness and greed has taken over and that is what we should start fighting before we can talk of equality.We could have every African country led by women but if the core selfishness and greed exists, there will be no change.1Reply Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on WhatsAppManser Thelua Kenya 9 Questions 138 Answers 2 Best Answers 4,227 Points View Profile Manser Thelua East Africa Added an answer on January 13, 2019 at 1:53 pm Africa is not even ready for a poor president, we are still stuck in tribalism and classism. If you are not rich and you don’t come form the right family, you are wasting your time. Unless people decide to think about real development, we will continue being victims of the political class.0Reply Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on WhatsAppLeave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Notify me of new posts by email.
