Ebola Virus Disease: The Core Weakness Of West Africa Exposed By Perry Brimah

August 11, 2014 – Ebola Virus Disease: The Core Weakness Of West Africa Exposed By Perry Brimah

Any excuse that was floated to justify the provision of ZMapp Ebola cure to Americans only and not any single Africans, went out the window when a Spaniard priest who came down with the virus received his own doses as is in headlines today.

There is nothing left for Africans to figure out. We are monkeys. Late Dr. Sheikh Umar Khan, a most respected, altruistic specialist who was globally cherished for his forefront battle against Ebola was not given the drug. African nations keep pleading for the drug to be given to their victims, but not a single African has yet merited it; but the American Caucasians did and so do the Spanish Caucasians.

It therefore comes as no surprise that it took five days of Ebola affecting Americans for this cure to emerge, but no cure was ever ‘found’ or revealed for the four decades that Ebola killed only Africans.

But we as Africans cannot blame the west. We cannot be mad. This only tells us that we are at war, or well, the West is at war with us; that the West does not value or respect us. This only reminds us that we as a continent are no better viewed by the West than we were 100 years ago when one of our sons, Ota Benga was locked up for viewing in the Bronx, New York zoo – till he took his own life.

This only tells us that the rumors of depopulation intentions and programs; that the rumors of Caucasian billionaires and world richest men sponsoring programs to depopulate Africa through medical interventions have high level of truth in them.

But more importantly, this reminds us that it is time; time to kick out our hopeless administrations. There is no reason why we should beg for simple remedies that we can produce ourselves and that were made from antibodies harvested from our own sons, from the West. Absolutely no reason. As a molecular scientist and physician, I am confident that with very little funds I can purify ‘ZMapp’ serum monoclonal antibodies for public use within 3 months. Therefore this crises tells us that with leaders who are intoxicated with buying the most private jets from Europe and who believe in subservience to Europe and Europe-tailored development, we have lost our dignity, hope and life. We are nothing more than rats being led for the slaughter and a shameful death at that, by our leaders and the West. The West does not even hear whispers from our leaders’ pleas for the drug. They scoff at our #GiveAfricaZMapp and #GiveThemExperimentalDrugs campaigns.

Ebola is a pestilence here to disgrace us Africans and stimulate us. This is our curse of hopeless leadership. This is our reward for shameless followership. Ebola is to our shame. Ebola is our name.

    Perry Brimah your article brought tears to my eyes because it was so true.
    The worst part of it is we still will not learn. Our leaders keep destroying the country there is no reason why we cannot find a cure for Ebola. We have the talent. We rather wait for the western world to help us out while our leaders continue to squander our wealth.

    This is the same inferiority complex we have suffered over the ages, mental slavery and mind control, the west feels like the elites, they claimed to be the transparent ones and African must see through them, they have totally subjected the minds of African leaders to lack of ego and low self esteem. we have been defeated ever-since the time of slave trade when our able and reasonable men were forcefully dragged into captivity…the question now is our going to be enslaved forever

      your leaders will NOT hand out to cheque even if a nigerian scientist can come up with a drug. they will rather travel abroad in their private jets to recieve medical attention. Also, leaders are partly to be blamed because u will barely hear them discussing funding for medical research. if they dont, who will? me? you? They are the so called “leaders” so they must play the role of a leader. But just like the writer said, i doubt if they will. Africa is under a major curse. Believe that.

    Obviously, this Perry does not understand how drugs are made. These companies spend millions of dollars in the research under supervision of the FDA and Human trials are not easily done. We do not companies to sponsor these researches and even when they do, will it be in our underfunded university labs? University faculties have their own labs funded by companies. We should not blame the Americans! The Zmapp took 15years the WHO is revisiting it’s policy. Until then, the government must act. My 2 cents

      How many million? Think about that. Will we (our government purses in Africa) really not pay? Why don’t we pay? in the first instance, why don’t we pay companies even if not local to develop this for us? Can we not afford to sponsor this research locally or abroad? The problem is there is no government honest support for research and advancement. All they buy is private jets and build roads and throw parties after mere roads are built. So we beg America.

    If africans don’t wake up. they will be gone like the native americans and tasmanians. Africa must learn how to solve their own problems and stoop relying on others. they must stop ngo’s they are spreading diseases and molesting african children. why are ngo’s always coming to africa but not europe,america,china and japan?
