Could Ebola be a biological weapon?

07 August 2014, 22:51 Miraclos Benjy

I am very worried that for some time now, all we hear on television and read in news papers is "Ebola virus". My questions are how did the ebola virus come about and why must Africa always be the victim?

The whites who always play God when it concerns Africa, told us that the Ebola virus emerged from baths and other bush animals. They said that any contact with the infected animals transmits the virus, now it is being campaigned across Africa to avoid contacts with bush meat. But my confusion is " if the virus emerged from the so-called listed animals, why did it wait for so long before the outbreak?" of course these animals have been in existence long ago.

Could this virus not be a biological weapon? I believe that the intention is to prove that they have the ability to destroy the wold.

Why in Africa? Oh yes, it is in Africa because Africa is the only place where its inhabitant are careless, Africa is a place where people don't ask questions, Africa is the only place where anything is allowed, and a place where leaders only concerns themselves with their safety in the expense of the continent.I believe that Ebola virus is deliberately created as a weapon of mass destruction and I know that Africa won't create that.

My advice to Africans is to lay aside your differences and personal interests and unite against Ebola. Don't depend on Europeans or Americans for help. They will only send you financial aids to divert your attention from seeking for the antivirus

I wish to say to whoever is responsible to this Ebola virus that it doesn't make sense to experiment with human life. God is watching.
