Powerful quotes by Patrick L.O. Lumumba About Africa

Patrick Lumumba is a Kenyan based eloquent Lawyer known for advocating for good leadership in Africa. He praised the late Tanzanian president John Pombe Magufuli for his good governance. The following are most powerful quotes from him.

"I believe that we have reached a stage in life in the economic development of Africa where moving forward is perilous, moving backward is cowardice and standing still is suicidal but must persevere because winners do not quit and quitter never win"

"When I look Africa many questions come to mind, many times I have asked myself what would happen if Dr Kwame Nkrumah were to rise up and see what is happening, many times I have asked myself what would happen if Nelson Mandela were to rise up and see what is happening, because what the will be confronted with is an African where the Democratic Republic of Congo is unsettled, there is war going on there but it is not on the front page of our newspaper because we don't even control our newspaper and the media."

"We are the third world not because the sun rises on the west and sets on the east but because we are engaged in a reverse gear and we are moving in a jet like speed in the wrong direction. We must change this by rolling up our sleeves and working for the growth of our country."

"Third world is a state of the mind and untill we change our attitude as Africans, if there is a fourth , fifth and the sixth world, we will be in it."

The above are some of the sayings of the eloquent Lawyer who is known for his tough English terms. He exposes bad leadership without any equivocation.
