This site is an aperture in a slowly sailing vessel towards the unknown past, known in history as pre-history. In traversing that expansive past moment hoping to encounter chaos of ignorance before coming to the breaking point, one realizes our present discoveries are not new but a rediscovery of an already discovered phenomena. The breaking point corresponds with the appearance of man on the face of the earth. In studying his new environment, primogenitor realized there were patterns of natural laws that remained constant without changing in time and condition. These laws, mastered in a pristine way through naked eye observation gave man two pertinent components that were recipe of civilization; God and culture.
The concept of deity was admissible through man’s weakness in comprehending the natural laws but was rescued by culture, the intelligence that was developed by his environment. The interplay of nature and culture commenced when man appeared in the scene. From then, discoveries were made spontaneously and intermittently while others were lost or covered in the long history of man. But with certainty, societies kept and preserved the most vital information for their own use and their prosperity. The community was not ready to open up to people of different stock hence sentiments expressed by Fredrick Hegel in 1880’s “Africa was not a historical continent; it shows neither change nor development”, and the black people he said “As we see them today so they have always been”. A similar opinion was captured by Sir Richard Francis Burton in his adventures in Africa about the Negro thus “He seems to belong to one of these childish races which never rising to the men’s estate, fall like worn out links from great chain of animated nature” and his religion “a vague and nameless awe”
It is no wonder the two men and others who belong to their school of thought missed the point because they opinionated within a policy frame work based on racism, Christian denominational mentality and disfranchisement. Considering time and place in the scramble of Africa, their opinion was very much sought by the empire builders to justify colonialism in the take all situation. But on the other hand we have rare and unique stock of the English breed in Dr Louis Seymour Bazel Leakey who was born among the Gikuyu people. He lived among them as one of them and earned himself a Gikuyu name Karuigi, the eagle for his sharp wittedness and agility. He was a kikuyu in white English skin. The kikuyu in him compiled three volumes “The Southern Kikuyu” at the height of British colonization of Kenya. The three volumes speak for themselves.
In the last 500 years prejudice and malice have been conspicuously engrained in all major treatises coming from Europe on the subject of African native. The opinion that man give, is a reflection of his inner thought or our complexity. It does not result from one’s authoritative position in any of the fields of learning because education is a component that widens the scope of the mind but has no role in shaping ones feelings. On the part of Africans the diverse and extreme unpredictable climatic conditions have influenced her philosophy. African philosophy has given him solace in creating a resilient society. The African philosophy has taught the natives not to over react over prejudice and malice because like famine and other calamities will wither away by themselves. Human civilization right from first time long time ago, at every point is determined by the ability to sustain tensions and control their release. The extravagant assertion of Adolf Hitler narrowed and concluded Fredrich Hegel and Richard Burton’s mission. This time round as would have been expected to take place in Africa it took place in Europe, the Hegel and Burton’s back yard. Europe fell back to the Second World War 1939-1945, to pay the price. That is history.
