Rant of the week is a new segment of AFRIKAJUMP where we basically bring you constructive rants by mostly Africans on Africa and the rest of the World as concerns the ranters. Phew.

rant

This segment will be unending, we predict.

Today’s rant is amply supplied by Maburuzo, a Nigerian in disapora. Enjoy…?

“One of the pleasant surprises I had when I first came to Brazil was meeting a woman president, seeing a woman poet on their money and finding out all their passports and documents first had your mother’s family name before finally your fathers.
I immediately knew nobody will call me ASHAWO! No matter what I wear here.

As someone from a region in Africa that has sworn to uphold and carry patriarchy on it’s head perpetually I was impressed.

Recently me and some friends were talking and they couldn’t believe in Nigeria, mothers’ family name didn’t appear on any of our sh/t. When you think about it, it really is incredulous, because there are many cases when the man doesn’t know if he is the father of the child, but WITHOUT ANY DOUBT, the mother is the mother.

So I am not shocked when our senior Naija men cannot pass ordinary gender equality bill. It seems they have 200 more years to go in their imbecility and lack of vision, and we the Nigerian people ALWAYS help them.”
