Browsing: Genocide

I got it from the title of a poem I wrote, called: “I Will Be Silent.” This was a poem I wrote concerning the genocide which happened in Darfur, Sudan, many years ago. I wrote it in response to the then international media blackout that occurred during that period and how men and young male children were systematically slaughtered by government supported Janjaweed militia.

It is disheartening that my friend Femi is scared to visit Kaduna and it seems we can’t guarantee Ali’s safety in Enugu; some sons of anarchy are making life uneasy for travellers on the highway while entire families are being wiped out up North, and yes!…there is the new trend: clashes between herders and host communities; all these happening for reasons best known to only the perpetrators of this evil.
