Jomo Kenyatta, First President of Kenya, said - with a lot of truth and a dose of sarcasm:
"When the missionaries came to Africa,
they had the Bible and we had the land.
They taught us to pray with our eyes closed.
When we opened them,
we had the Bible in our hand,
and they had the land."
"From the cowardice that dare not face new truth,
From the laziness that is contended with half truth,
From the arrogance that thinks it knows all truth,
Good Lord, deliver me".
(A Kenyan Prayer)
