SIR — I would like to share an interesting discourse I came across in a book entitled Triple, by Ken Follett. The story goes thus: There was a captain in the KGB whose stupid son had great difficulty understanding the concepts of the Communist Party, the Motherland, the Unions and the People. The captain told the boy to think of his father as the Party, his mother as the Motherland, his grandmother as the Unions and himself as the People. Still, the boy did not understand. In a rage, the father locked the boy in a wardrobe in the parental bedroom. That night, the boy, watching through the wardrobe keyhole, said, “Now I understand! The Party rapes the Motherland while the Unions sleep and the People have to stand and suffer”. This is a joke about the then Communist Russia but has a moral for us. most African leaders seem to have perfected the bankruptcy and hypocrisy of the KGB captain!
