More recently, roughly 6 days ago, the great leader of Uganda also took to his platform and national TV to apologize to the African American community for the sinful participation of some African kingdoms. Over the period of the Atlantic Slave Trade, from approximately 1526 to 1867, some 12.5 million captured men, women, and children were put on ships in Africa, and 10.7 million arrived in the Americas. The Atlantic Slave Trade was likely the most costly in human life of all long-distance global migrations. Not many African governments have taken accountability nor proposed any retribution or offers in return. However, it seems the tides are turning and the trend is growing. Watch and read Museveni and his wife’s speech below. Read the speech here… “We come in humility and brokenness to repent for the sins of the leaders in Africa, and in particular, the sin of sending our own brothers and sisters into slavery. This great sin brought untold pain and misery to millions of people of African descent and judgment to the African people who remained on the continent. The grave sin of slavery scattered our people all over the face of the earth, where they have suffered great deprivations and loss. If it were not for the part that our African kings and chiefs played in the slave trade, this evil trade could not have survived. Therefore, on behalf of all the African leaders, past and present, all of them, I acknowledge the part that we played in this tragedy, and today we ask for forgiveness. We seek forgiveness for the great pain and loss that the myopic and selfish decisions of our leaders caused our brothers and sisters of African descent around the world, and we ask their forgiveness.” – Yoweri Museveni Janet Kataaha Museveni – “We plead the blood of Jesus to cleanse us all from this great sin and release us from the spiritual, mental, emotional, and economic bondage it brought. Today we reopen the door to our brothers and sisters of African descent to return home to the continent of Africa, the land of their ancestry, and the spiritual homeland of all African people. We welcome you home with open arms as brothers and sisters, and pray that we can close the door to the dark past and work towards a better future. In Jesus’ mighty name we pray. Amen. Amen. Amen. You are going to declare to us that we’ve forgiven you, represent whatever word you want to say, to declare forgiveness to us.
