Under the heading “Constipated Thoughts”, the magazine muses and moans about the myriad of problems that have made Africa the “sorry continent” despite all its unequalled riches in natural resources.
Hypothetical Africa is a yearning for the transformation of the continent. It is a cry for a brighter future for Africa’s children and grandchildren; for posterity. When Africans get to Hypothetical Africa, there will be no need for publications like the Hypothetical Africa Magazine. There, in Hypothetical Africa, abject poverty will not be the norm, corruption will not be the order of the day, repression and brutalisation of Africans in their own homes enabled by their own inactions, connivance and worst of all perpetuated by their own governments will be but a distant memory. In Hypothetical Africa, basic human rights will not be afterthoughts in national discourses … these will be integral to the African’s whole being. In Hypothetical Africa, the African refrain will be equality and respect for the individual, minorities, the down-trodden, the weak, the sick, the rich and the poor… and even the powerful but clean and upright… not the kleptomaniacs! It will be the awakening and invigoration of a disrespected, down-trodden and long comatose giant. It will be Africa the beautiful!
