Most African fathers are going through a lot of prejudicial treatment from their children. The children get moved by the food that their mothers offer them, by the tears they see on their mothers' faces or because of the enormous time that they share with their mothers. They forget that their fathers spent huge amount to have their mothers and pay most of the bills. And it wouldn't be an over statement to say that most African women still feel contented in being married by a man ( not the other way ) , in living a house solely owned by the man ( not thinking about owning theirs), in being lured to have sex by their husbands ( not initiating or taking it as an obligation). African women have been fooled by the Bible to remain "second class humans" . Unfortunately the children have not been objective enough in manifesting their love.

Bob Bristol,

So the Bible is the sole reason why African women are treated as sub-humans right? wow! don't be a hypocrite my friend. The marginalization of African women is predominantly caused by sexism. Sexism in Africa is alarming and it's no secrets that African men are sexist. The society is male-dominated and women are not given the opportunity to compete on an equal platform. A lot of these women (like most marginalized Africans) turn to religion for solace.

Mr. Ndienla,
Father's Day is not a day for me to be playing around with the kids! Father's Day is a day for me to rest, sit back and enjoy the benefits of my sufferings. It is a day reserved for kids to show their appreciation for Daddy's boundless love wherever he might be! A card, a silly tie, a telephone call/e-mail/text, or just a simple hug will do.
It is a day too for re-building bridges between father and children, amongst all else!
Had I read the offerings above in a newspaper I would be tempted to go back to the shop to ask for my money back. This writer has not got a clue!

Ras Tuge

This piece of writing is simply dedicated to my father, the man with a savage poetry and brilliance who basically taught me how to lead a righteous life.

As an exceptionally curious child, my mind was mostly shaped by my father; his words of wisdom and encouragement, his multiplicity of books including countless magazines like Africa Now, his cheerfulness, his benevolence, and ofcourse his diligence.

Though my sweet mother played an extraordinary role in making me the man that i am today, my father remains the backbone of my assertiveness by always reminding me to never let my friends leave me behind. And this is the very essence of this irritating poem.

Therefore, this poem shall speak of my good father, the man who saw nothing else in me but a champion. The man who taught me to be strong for there are scarcely any beds of roses in this life.

With this piece of writing, i proclaim my father's worth as the man with the mighty heart. The man who embraced hordes of the less fortunate, and under whose virtuous tutelage
many more found relative glory.

This poem deserves to be written; for my father's goodness needs to be told, and people like my father really donot exist. There's nobody who would not read this piece of writing, for it is there to be read by everybody.

I don't know if i shall ever be able to give to my children just as much measure as i received from my good old man. I am not sure that i can teach and inspire them just like my father inspired me with celestial knowledge.

This poem shall reveal my shortcomings, for i am not certain that my progeny shall have the zeal and reverence to speak of me as i gleefully speak of my father; the man who basically knew the answers to everything that i wanted to know as a curious and annoying child.

This piece of writing is great, because it speaks of the greatness of a meek man who is a patient father not just to me, but to many frail and helpless children, some of whose names he cannot even remember any more owing to approaching senility.

This poem is frankly for everybody to read and hate the joy of knowing my father. It is to awaken a spirit of utter nostalgia for that which was, and for that which still is in my good and virile old man who never really grows old, eventhough he is that old.

Papa, the road has been long and bumpy but we have come a long way. I know you will always be proud of me, but if you could see me right now, then you will be very glad that i always listened to you, eventhough i was stubborn and often pretended not to. This piece of wrting is about my father.

Rat Tuge,
go and write that crap in your diary...not on a public forum. You will do whatever you can to call attention to yourself won't you? SMH.

Danny Boy

US of Africa,
what is eating you up? Ras Tuge is simply paying hommage to his Dad! What did you do or say to your Dad on Father's Day? No one on this forum will begrudge you, should you want to share this love for your father, deceased or living!
There are times one has taken you serious, but to tell you the truth, your uncouth utterings abase this.
Abuse me if you wish!
