Fathers of Nations is a somewhat long novel.
As such, it has many themes which you can find on EasyElimu - Themes in Fathers of the Nations
The general premise of the novel is about a summit meeting that will be held at the Pinnacle Hotel in Banjul, The Gambia.
All African heads of states (fathers of nations) will be in attendance at the meeting to discuss a a document titled ‘Way Omega.’
However, others (AGDA) have come to disrupt the meeting and introduce their own document (Path Alpha) that they believe is way better than Way Omega.
The other document is called ‘Path Alpha’.
Way Omega is a document containing a way to develop Africa.
Way omega was developed and published by twenty Nobel laureates.
A laureate is a person who is honoured with an award for outstanding creative or intellectual achievement.
Africa’s ministers of planning had a look at Way Omega and liked it and now the Summit meeting is being held so that all countries can adopt it as a common development strategy.
One major idea of Way omega is changing the way politics are handled/conducted in Africa (pg.7).
Historically, African presidency have been won through military coups and rigged election.
These are illegal ways that presidents use to gain and keep power.
They are bad because they lead to the disenfranchisement of the people that they want to govern.
Disenfranchisement is taking away a people's right to vote. In essence, way Omega proposes that there be no more foul play when it comes to politics in Africa.
Way Omega is also a development strategy crafted to end Africa’s misery.
Africa has many problems including poverty, disease, ignorance, corruption and impunity (see page 40-41).
The first three according to Mr. Longway were the original problems that the elect leaders after gaining independence promised to eradicate.
The last two are problems created by the breed of leaders that we keep electing into office whereby the politicians are the ones who are the main beneficiaries of the two latter problems that have wrecked and keep wrecking the lives of the normal African.
However, politicians are not the only ones who are corrupt as we have police officers in The Gambia as illustrated in the incident of the Taxi Driver (see page).
Moreover, other problems afflicting Africa include insecurity, apathy and unemployment.
Path Alpha is a development strategy that AGDA believes is a superior alternative to Way Omega (pg.16).
They hope to slip it in to replace Way Omega with it during the summit.
