As the world braces for the World Aids Day on December 1, the recent confession by the UN that its HIV/Aids prevalence statistics were exaggerated was a bold move of accountability. The number of people infected globally plummets from nearly 40 million to 33 million.
The admission however reveals that the world is driven by agenda. Figures can be manipulated to accomplish premeditated schemes such as generating funds, influencing polls, locking out agricultural produce in the name of food miles; detering food sufficiency by proscribing technologies that boost food productivity and controlling population among others.
Africa must guard against falling prey to externally generated stereotypes meant to destroy its developmental immune system and render it vulnerable to all manner of manipulation. Such measurements as Africansí IQ being lower than that of other races; Africans living on less than 1USD per day and the continent needing a redoubling of foreign aid are all meant to kill African psyche and spur inactivity, dependency and passiveness as the continentís resources are plundered.
The reduction in HIV/Aids figures should however not lead to loose lifestyles in Africa. HIV/Aids is real and is fast backtracking economies. It must be prevented and managed at all costs.
