Source: starrfmonline.com - The Director at the Kenya School of Law, Professor P.L.O Lumumba has taken a swipe at think tanks in Africa, describing them as institutions that do not think.
According to the pan-Africanist, African think tanks are merely interested in the prestige that comes with the name and association but rarely do any serious thinking for the continent.
“In ?Africa?, we have think tanks...they are tanks, they don't think,” he stated at a public lecture in Accra Friday.
In his view, Africans must begin to take themselves seriously in order to be taken serious by the West.
“We must change our state of mental development if ??Africa? will realize it's full potential. We have been pregnant with hope for too long. Pregnancy must end.
“It is time to deliver. And we are the midwives. ??Africa? likes new things and we don't have the staying power. “Today in ?Africa?, we hang the goat thieves and elect the big thieves into office,” he fumed.
