After 1976 Ebola Virus Outbreak, Americans Went Into Research, Africans Are Busy Praying

EBOLA 1976

August 7, 2014 – After 1976 Ebola Virus Outbreak, Americans Went Into Research, Africans Are Busy Praying Since – Global Africa

They say the colonialist conquered Africa by the means of gunpowder from Arabia/Asia and germs. Hygiene was not a virtue in Europe. The Queen of England is famed to have said she only had a bathe once a month, “whether she needed it or not.” King James’ custom was to have his bathe only once a year. [Ref] So it was in Europe.

A bathroom was not a natural property of a home and till date, we find in England that bathrooms are recent extensions of many homes, being added later. The relevance of this is the relationship between moral hygiene and disease. Europe had the worst plagues in recent human history. The Bubonic plagues… the plagues in the dark eras. These plagues wiped out much of the population of Europe, most especially its men; indeed it was plagues and wars that led to the feminist culture and women in the work environment, because with the death of so many workers, women were forced to work to assist the European economy. The plagues were directly related to filth in Europe. The colonialist picked up soap and bathing habits from his exploits to Africa, the Middle East and Asia.

Fast-forward to 2014. Africa is plagued by HIV and plagued today by Ebola…
Africa has become the bastion of sorry health problems in addition to other inabilities. What is the commonly attributed source of Ebola (if we deny any biological warfare intentional dissemination), it is from bush meat. In Africa many of us love to eat these wild animals. Baboons, Gorilla’s, snakes and what have you. Nothing will stop us from biting in to the juicy strands of these animals, spicily roasted. And these animals remain the reservoir of Ebola.

When we study HIV, we see similar simple cultural behaviors that can diminish HIV rates in Africa.

Circumcision which is not only a monotheistic habit in Judea-Christianity and Islam but dates back to Kemetic practices of ancient Nubian Egypt; this simple practice of cutting off the foreskin of the male penis reduces the risk of HIV infection by as much as 60% from scientific studies. The cheapest methods of eliminating health problems is prevention. And much invaluable prevention is in religious and cultural doctrine.

In the western world today, they have invested in perfecting expensive methods of curtailing outbreaks and treating diseases. To Africa’s shame, our leaders have been hopeless; hopelessly embezzling all the capital that African states should have used to advance its health-care system; and while they have spent time dancing and swallowing billions of dollars for the state, diseases, crime, terror and other crises have not waited but have advanced as much as modern innovation has permitted. While African leaders today do elaborate opening ceremonies when they build ordinary roads and establish train networks, the world has advanced in leaps and bounds in disease management and also in type of deadly germs.

Ebola has plagued Africa for 4 decades. Africa has no hope of dealing with it and waits for the west to look into our problem for us. Our leaders invest nothing into directing the proper healthcare preventive measures which are cheap to establish or in investing in and sponsoring appropriate research into more complex levels of disease management. We embrace the cultural dangers and advanced risk habits from Europe, but are denied the associated health and social wealth checks they have. African leaders and government cabal ‘business’ tycoons have the most private jets in the world, but the people have the least health-care expenditure per capita, per person – less than $100/year/person in Africa compared to more than $8000 in the US.

We call to Europe to help. We run to France, to America to set up regional collaborations among us to tackle terror; we run to them to decide how we must manage Ebola.

It is to our shame in Africa; and it’s not just our leaders whose heads should be in the ground, but us all.

  1. @ author even if africans want to do research where is the money.
    Ameirca is developing because politician do not loot money like in Africa.
    I agree with a commentator here, Africa is likely under a spell

  2. what is there to be ashamed of? .if we cant find the cure ,let those that can do it,,,please if they can get the cure for ebola they should ,we will gladly appericate it….instead of writing rubbish ,please write of the recent development for the cure of EBOLA.

  3. Nice one Dr Brimah it is quite painful that we have a blessed nation as Nigeria,but deadly minded people.They travel world wide,but make no impart in what the see out of the country,the most impartant thing i enjoy here in europe in 1 health care,2 eletricity,3 security name it…….we have much more to do in our country because we are really back ward.i pray that God in his infinity mercies rise men and women that will bring back Nigeria to its standed of leaving,cox we are blessed.

  4. Doc, is it praying that has delayed and derailed African development?
    America is where it is today because men prayed and paid the price.
    why not face your corrupt politicians rather than chanelling your energy to the least cause of worry?

  6. @****: You are to narrow-minded and very low in your thinking. Your reasoning is very shallow. The author has made some points. Ok. Start from 1976 when the first outbreak occurred, what did the African medical practitioners did? What about the government? Since that time, they did nothing. Can an outsider take care of your personal problems? Can’t doctors, medical professionals do research on diseases like this one? Most we wait for Americans and others to find the cure and at what cost? You are sick. You have no cure of your sickness. No clue at all. But you have doctors. Health workers who will watch you sick and die. Yet no cure. and Someone, somebody’s father, son, daughter, uncle, aunty, just someone, found the cure and soon will be become rich and all Africans can do is to buy. In your mind, you call that development? African is a disgrace!

  7. The first 2 comments to this article tells me that Africans will never get it. @pelumi n zikah missed the point completely. Very sad .

  8. I am happy to hear such news. i myself totally disappointed to be an Africa man. All Africa leaders are failure to all entire Africans nations. well God know why he made me to be… open your eyes and stop over religious and fight for yourself. God has given us power to deliver / solve our problems! Beside he give us dominion over all things on earth. stop listen those miracle fake pastors etc… they don’t have any better solution to our problems..!!!! You have power to heal yourself.. if your pastors can allow you to read bible well.
    Since 1976 to date.. none of them have sends medical experts unto research to find the solutions. Oh my God!! but they are busy buying $ millions/ billion cars and private jets. while other suffering in the name of bondage. Africa is home-land of religious bigot.. fake pastors etc. hence prayer without work is complete failure. please Africa wake up… night is coming… support your life with God & science so that we may live better life! hence without white people, no phone, car, airplane either superlative communications in these new world today etc. Africa where are you? buying private jet & expensive car and beside stop follow business fake preachers called themselves Prophets… Look some churches don’t take medications due to sheepish life of faith and gamble they life. While bible says that give you vegetable for food and herb to heal the nations… Ezekiel 47:12, Rev 22:1-7… But those fake prophets are not coming that chapters. May God and heaven help those who helps themselves. if you have ear hear my word either die in darkness of preachers of darkness. God bless Nigeria and entire Africa. Amen

  9. Thank you Mr Marley. You speak the truth. Africans are blinded. Fake pastors are everywhere. If they can heal why they go to hospitals and heal the sick. Why don’t they make the disabled person by the side of the road walk. Why is healing always taking place in church. Answer is simple. All those claiming to be sick are paid by pastors to pretend be healed. All of them are liars.
