Does a repeated or ignored mistake turn to be a good thing?
Whereby you keep repeating a mistake previously made by someone else. Or choose to ignored it all together since no one seem to ask you about it. And when they eventually ask you about it, you work hard to justify your wrong doings.
What point am I trying to clear out here?
This is the exact scenario happening in most countries where people have encroached or grabbed wildlife land. Maybe its their relatives or someone else or even themselves that stole that land. Knowing very well that it doesn’t belong to them.
Years passed by and no one seem to question them. So they either stole more or started getting comfortable and brave about such land. They went ahead to turn this land to farms, ranch, built permanent structures and fenced it.
Basically, they offered themselves ownership rights. They decided for themselves to grab the wildlife land and turn it to be theirs.
The brilliant ones that knew something may happen someday. And they risk ‘losing’ the stolen land. They collaborated with corrupt officials, politicians or some people in power. And generated fake / ‘original’ papers to convince the rest of us that the land rightful belongs to them.
That being not enough, some went ahead and sold the land to other parties. Who may or may not have knowledge of the circumstances associated with this land.
How many mistakes do we have so far?
- Someone stole wildlife land hence misplaced the occupants (Wildlife).
- Human-wildlife conflict results. No living organisms gives up their space without a fight.
- The stolen land forced the culprits to forge ownership papers.
- An innocent person buys a stolen land unintentionally.
So how do they justify these mistakes?
