A highly respected medic and activist, Her Excellence Dr Arikana Chihombori Quao MD, who is also a noted speaker, educator, diplomat, entrepreneur and C.E.I and founder of the Bell Farm Medical Centre, in the US – where she now lives - is, if nothing else, consistently shifting the narrative of Africa as she, unabashed, exposes the continent’s current affairs and free its bondage to Europe and China.
As she remains unapologetic in her pursuit of reshaping global African history, her call for unity - as one across the continent - she is on a mission to free it – all on her own!
The Zimbabwe-born worldly mover-and-shaker, Her Excellence Dr Chihombori Quao, has gone so far as to put her job on the line for what she believes in – and she was sacked in the process.
She was sacked by the African Union’s envoy to the United States allegedly due to her criticism of “sustained colonisation by France”.
Having gained a First Degree in General Chemistry and a Masters Degree in Organic Chemistry, she was appointed to the position in 2016 and it put her in a position to be able to galvanize the support of people of African descent, especially throughout the United States – and beyond.
During a TV conversation at the time, she talked of; “the pact for the continuation of colonization”.
The African bloc has never actually sanctioned, or received, any complaints about her views.
Despite the knock-back, though, she tells the truth about the state of affairs and remains truly and sincerely supportive of Mother Africa. “Africa is in the driving seat”, she says, “So it must steer itself currently – as one voice, one movement and a desire to free its people!
Dr Chihombori Quao is very outspoken and has also become a leading voice for Pan-Africanism.
She said: “And then, we must acknowledge Africa’s true worth”.
“And” she continues, “Take charge of its own economy”.
Married to the equally highly respected Dr Nii Saban Quao, her book; ‘Africa 101: The Wake-Up Call’ tells the story about the “hunters” (Africa’s explorers, slavers, colonizers and neo-colonizers) and the “hunted” (African people who survived against severe odds).
In it, in her usual ‘in-your-face’ style, H.E. Dr Arikana Chihombori Quao MD’s tells the story of Africa – “Wake up from your slumber of 400 years, free yourself from the mental shackles of slavery and colonization”, is the quote that welcomes you to its compelling read.
“What bothers me”, she continually ponders, “is the realization that the richest continent on Earth is the poorest on Earth”.
