Basona Lokondosocial issues, African politics
My dream has always been to give a dream to the People of the Democratic Republic of Congo, and to help them to wake up from this interminable long night that they are going through, while predators and scavengers are roaming within the compound. My dream has equally been to create a space or a platform where all African people and their diasporas made up of people of metaphysic vision and knowledge, intellectuals, leaders, entrepreneurs, scientists, strategists and political deciders - that they be descendants of African slaves of Americas or those who are living on the mother continent and their descendants scattered all over the world for survival reasons- could meet and strategise together as fingers of hands for our collective survival for a new rebirth on a planet which is naturally ours. My dream has forever been to lead our people and to take them off the beaten track of ignorance. When I was very young, I have often paid the price for such dreams, because, others were expecting me to dream the dream of the children of my age. I have often been ridiculed, belittled in many forms, chastised, and put in quarantine. I seized instead that opportunity to refine my nature, to hone spirituality and spiritual perspectives, to excel in self-discipline and to shield my soul against psychic violence and pains of conscious harm doers in my closest environment. I have been settled in Australia since 2002 and from 2003 to 20013, I earned diplomas in Business Legal Services and Management from Blacktown TAFE, and completed all the theoretical subjects in Property Conveyancing and Property Valuation from Ultimo TAFE. I also graduated from Charles Sturt University's Management School where I earned graduate diploma. Living a secluded life and having to survive in stressful and very combative and capitalist Australia did not dim down the inner light necessary to continue to sustain my initial and life vision for change in Congo and unification of our peoples from Americas via Europe to Africa. I'm publishing the present 'Tome 1: We must wake up' to give a notice to the whole Congolese Nation and national leadership and parachuted rulers that the prophetic time of change has come, and that chains have been severed. It is also an opportunity to give a clear notice to those who did not believe in these years that I and the vision are still alive, well and strong.
