Radical former Director of the Kenyan Anti-Corruption Agency, Prof. Patrick Lumumba, on Wednesday carpeted  African leadders for worsening insecurity and economic crisis in the region, lamenting that they have failed the masses.

While specifically accusing the leaders of discussing trivialities during the recent African Union summit in Addis-Ababa, Ethiopia, Lumumba blamed the challenges to Africa’s greatness on the problems of leadership structure and institutional corruption.

Lumumba stated these in his lecture titled: “Census 2022: Concerns for internally displaced persons and implications on the 2023 general elections”, during the 20th anniversary of Jos-based human rights organization, Stefanos Foundation.

The anti-corruption czar maintained that Nigeria was a missing link to Africa’s greatness.

Lumumba said, “During the two-day summit, I, like many Africans waited to hear our leaders talk about the conflict in Africa, especially Mali, Burkina Faso, about the insurgency in Nigeria, about the conflict in Central African Republic, Eastern Congo, Northern Mozambique, Southern Cameroon, Sudan and different part of Africa but I only listen to them talk about whether Israel should have observer status at the AU. Indeed they did not stop there, they constituted a team of African Heads of States where Israel will have observer status at AU. I was disappointed.”

He said that the proliferation of IDP camps in the region which should ordinarily serve as a temporary base but now permanent abode for many citizens was a result of a lack of empathy from the leaders.

According to the Professor of Law, the time had come for Africans to ask themselves painful and uncomfortable questions.
