I can only commend you for what you have done and are still doing since you return home to the motherland. It would be a very good thing if you could continue to work with those farmers and share your ideas with them, and create unity with them based on what you are doing, then you can give them better prices for their products as you grow in your business. You can consider yourself a poineer, and nourish and cultivate that same idea, and make it a tremendous success, for you and your collective African family, right there in Kenya, and maybe spread it out to Ethiopia later. It is a ahame that our own African Governments cannot find resources to put our farmers to work on our own land, for the benefit of Mama Africa and her people everywhere.
We are really in a very bad state of mind when African leaders are at this time leasing our prime land to foriegn investors for 84 yeas or more. It is a recolonization of the African continent with the approval of our own African leaders. Land is the basis of liberation as well as the basis for slave trading activities. $1.50 per day for our farmers is really slave wages when you compare it with the cost of living which is always going up and never coming down. And to think that these foriegners have already estimated that they may make $100,oooo in a very short time. If our farmers can work for foriegners they can work for themselves if the resources are provided by our own African governments along with technical advisors. The journey of life continues.
Take the best care of yourselves and your people.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to African people everywhere.
ONE BLACK HEART ONE BLACK LOVE.
Baba Ras Marcus.
