Africa has developed in so manyways with the socio-economic sectors being frontiers tothe 21st century development of the continent. Certain parts of Africahave seen tremendous political developments where improved political discoursesare held each day.Inspite of the 21st century developments,civilization and globalization, one aspect of the lives of many Africanscontinue to live in the medieval era, untouched and uninfluenced by the beauty ofscience, the opened mindedness and free-thinking of this century.Fetteredby fears, lack of education and our inability to fully embrace science orquestion things, superstition remains a robust and unchallenging forcecontrolling the lives, minds and beliefs of many Africans.In Africa, superstitious beliefs are held by almost everyperson you will come across. Even the very educated elites to some extent areincarcerated in their dark days by these beliefs. There is a little bit of suchbeliefs engulfed in the minds of all.Youmay find it difficult to come to terms with the fact that, the religiousleaders of Africa are the strong holders ofthe many dogmatic superstitious beliefs.Thoughmany African religious leaders (Pastors, Mallams,Imans etc)  do not practice or positively portraysuperstitions, they work tirelessly, pray hard and put mechanisms in place tofight or conquer the deeds of those (witches flying on brooms, wizardsvanishing from end to another, dwarfs, fetish priests giving out black magic,etc)  who engage in superstitions.Thefact that religious leaders believe they have to fight, pray against or conquerthese superstitions in itself is a strong credence that, to them, these thingsare real, exist and have real power to do what we envisage they do. Otherwise,why will you pray against the activities of witchcraft if you do not believethey are in action?In Africa, nothing in life happens genuinely. No one dieswithout his or her death having been caused by another through some dubiousmeans.  Accidents are never attributed to faults or incompetence of thepeople in charge or machine failure, they are always orchestrated by certainsuperstitious powers.Holdingsolid superstitious beliefs and practicing them in the face of contradictoryevidence is not uncommon in Africa. Eventhough this baffles my thinking faculty, it is the unfortunate ordeals thatthese believers bring to bear on others that worry me most.Imaginea distressed mother who has just lost her pregnancy (miscarriage) having beenconfidently told that her aged grandmother or mother in the village bewitchedher, and used her unborn baby for the witchcraft annual party that was held somewhere in the bush in themiddle of the night.Themiscarriage may be devastating but the thought that your own mother or grandmother fried your innocentunborn child for a party is immensely diabolical.Itis not only the everyday people who buy into the several superstitious beliefsin Africa, many graduates attribute theirinability to find their dream jobs to the evil activities of their relatives orpeople who do not wish them good.Itmay shock you to know that, medical doctors who cannot help their patientsfrequently throw out sentences like ‘we cannot find what is wrong with you,your illness may be caused by some evil or dark powers so it is better to goand seek alternative help’.AndI am sure you know that, the help such patients are being encouraged to seek isfrom people who are deeply buried in superstitions.  I think it is safe tosay that, even some medical doctors refer the sick to these superstitious believers/practitioners…Whatdoes this tell you? They all believe in it too.Thereason why in the face of contemporary human development and civilization,dogmatic superstitions remain astronomically relevant in Africais that, it is a long connecting chain of beliefs held by both the illiteratesand the literates. Who then has the audacity to question or undermine suchdrivel beliefs?Ifanything has enslaved the minds of Africans beyond emancipation, then it is thecountless superstitions that have blocked our minds from tasting logicalreasoning, mental freedom and seeking the beauty ofopened mindedness and the excellence of today’s science.Thelast time I saw anyone fly on a broom stick for thousands of miles to causeharm or kill another was not in Harry Potter, but in the mind of a certainAfrican.
