Prof. PLO Lumumba was the key speaker at the Awards night 2018 in Lowell MA where he also received his own award honoring his outstanding work in addressing the African problems. “Make Africa Great again” was the title of his speech at the annual event organized by the African cultural association which attracts diaspora Africans from countries across Africa as well as many Americans.
“Professor Lumumba, it’s truly an honor to be in your presence. I know for sure through all what you have shared with us this evening that all you ever wanted is to realize how special Africa is. I am deeply touched by that,” said Mom before presenting the citation from the Massachusetts House of Representatives, recognizing Lumumba’s “contributions in fighting corruption and selflessly working to promote Africa’s empowerment.”
Prof. Lumumba addresses the importance to focus on finding workable solutions to the contemporary problems facing Africa like Corruption and bad governance instead of blaming history. The African heads of state have declared corruption the major focus in 2018 which reflects positive progress towards the collective war against corruption in entire Africa.
