The Director at the Kenya School of Law, Professor P.L.O Lumumba has remarked that Africa’s poor management of its transportation system has driven the continent’s airlines to “the museum of history”.

“Every African country had an airline… As I speak to you, they have all been consigned into the museum of history. Even our Kenyan Airways is about to collapse… We lost it out. We said we wanted railways and we threw out our colonizers. Today, our railway lines have died,” he said at the PAV Ansah Memorial Lecture in Accra on Friday.

Professor Lumumba indicated that Africans have lost faith in themselves, a situation that has led to the continent not being a significant player in the affairs of the world.

“Whenever we are invited to the dinner table of civilised nations, it is only as a favour. When we have been given the opportunity to govern ourselves, we have demonstrated to be incapable… And we who have been given the opportunity to create systems that can run our countries, we have the penchant of bastardising and making the absurd normal. That is the African tragedy,” he said.

According to the Pan-Africanist and law Professor, it was high time Africans asked critical questions as to what has led to that and revert in order to develop.
