USA Africa Dialogue Series - Re: Bandits in uniform, or a country of anything goes by Chido Onumah

In other words what you're saying is that the devil should be put on trial (by the courts) and if not found guilty, should be set free. You can call it "jungle justice " if you like and this is where I support Donald Trump:  when all else fails, we should start with a little waterboarding to begin to recover the loot.

Mazi Cornelius,
Thank God that you did not eventually become a military officer/ruler. The age long practice of an accused being presumed innocent untill proved guilty(by the courts) would have been abolished and the consequences would have been grave. Like my brother Chido Onumah, who is a good writer by the way, you would have been the accuser, the prosecutor and the judge.

One of the problems I have with the Chido Onumah well written narrative is that
 Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, who should be in trial with others for allegedly plundering the resources of his state as governor is now being subtly presented as a role model

I have no problems with anti-corruption campaigns, I have advocated them in my poems long before the current hysteria, but I have serious problems with President Buhari's one sided anti-corruption.

Finally, I am happy that I  joined this forum, otherwise, how would I have known that jungle justice is not peculiar to the motor parks.
