Nigerian Priest Slams Western Celebrities

Madonna & baby DavidNigerian priest Boniface Duru is in Malta to raise money and seek volunteers. He says that Africa doesn’t need used materials…it needs money and people. “We need to equip the people of Africa with the necessary resources to be able to address the problems in their countries. The time has come for people to really know what Africa needs. They no longer need to send used materials and bread,” he said.

He says that the only way to bring about change is to allow children to go to school and receive an education. He started an organization a few years ago, Opera don Bonifacio, to help accomplish this.

So, what’s he think of Madonna‘s recent adoption of baby David? The organization is opposed to adoption of African children. “When they are taken away from their country, they find it hard to return. We cannot always depend on Europeans and Americans to come in and bring a change. We need the Africans themselves to be able to do that. That is why they have to know the needs of the place. The only way to bring about change is if they are brought up there,” said Fr Duru.

In a final “slam” against our celebrities, the article states:

Asked whether celebrities who were trying to raise awareness of the problems in Africa were bringing about any change, Fr Duru said they were just using Africa to help them in their quest for fame.

Ouch.
