I wonder whether this article could possibly provide the basis for Affirmative Action and BBBE in South Africa? Living through war leads to in-group solidarity Date: November 7, 2013 Source: Association for Psychological Science _ War experiences have a long-term effect on human psychology, shifting people's motivations toward greater equality for members of their own group, according to research forthcoming in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science. According to study co-author Joseph Heinrich of the University of British Columbia, "these effects have the potential to explain both why conflict sometimes leads to cycles of war and sometimes stimulates nation-building in its wake." "Our research shows that exposure to war affects human psychology in specific ways," says psychological scientist and economist Michal Bauer of Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic. "These 'war effects' emerge in the short-term and, importantly, they have long-term impact on psychol ...

The head of Africa's continental body did not get to an Ebola-hit country until last week — months after alarm bells first rang and nearly 5,000 deaths later. Pledges to deploy 2,000 African health workers have remained largely that — promises. No African countries are on the United Nations list of contributors to fight the epidemic. The E-word did not even figure on the agenda of a session on peace and security at the Pan-African Parliament in South Africa last week — more than a month after the U.N. Security Council declared the Ebola outbreak a "threat to international peace and security." Angry legislators from Sierra Leone and Liberia got up to protest. "They said as far as they are concerned, nobody wants to talk about Ebola," said Jeggan Grey-Johnson, a governance expert who watched the session. "They said countries like Liberia feel totally abandoned by the rest of Africa and shut off from the rest of the continent," he told The Associated Press. With few exceptions, African governments and ...
MSBSD dispelling rumors--there is a teacher at Houston Middle School who is just returning from visiting her daughter in Johannesburg, South Africa. There is a Center for Disease Control ban on non-essential travel to Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone, which are in Western Africa due to Ebola outbreaks in those countries. There is currently no ban on travel to Johannesburg, South Africa, because there have been no known outbreaks in that country. We are going to follow the recommendations that have been provided by the CDC regarding travel to Africa.
Ebola May Compromise Morocco’s AFCON 2015 Hosting The rapid spread of the Ebola Virus in West Africa has forced Morocco to back-pedal from her initial decision to host the 2015 African Cup of Nations. The country fears that hosting the African soccer jamboree will slam open the country’s doors to the ravaging Ebola Virus. For fear of contamination, the Moroccan Football Federation, in a formal letter addressed to the Confederation of African Football, CAF, expressed her disinterest in hosting the tournament. However, CAF has issued a statement reassuring the country that everything will continue as scheduled and that all necessary measures will be taken to contain the importation of the Virus. With the current action by Morocco, CAF is considering South Africa and Ghana as possible hosts of the tournament, if Morocco should disappoints. Although the duo is favourites to take over the bid, CAF has not issued any categorical statement approving that Morocco would not host the competition. Morocco on her ...
Land of the Rising Sun Biafra, officially the Republic of Biafra, was a secessionist state in south-eastern Nigeria that existed from 30 May 1967 to 15 January 1970, taking its name from the Bight of Biafra (the Atlantic bay to its south). The inhabitants were mostly the Igbo people who led the secession due to economic, ethnic, cultural and religious tensions among the various peoples of Nigeria. The creation of the new state that was pushing for recognition was among the causes of the Nigerian Civil War, also known as the Nigerian-Biafran War. The state was formally recognised by Gabon, Haiti, Côte d'Ivoire, Tanzania and Zambia. Other nations which did not give official recognition but which did provide support and assistance to Biafra included Israel, France, Portugal, Rhodesia, South Africa and Vatican City.[3] Biafra also received aid from non-state actors, including Joint Church Aid, Holy Ghost Fathers of Ireland, Caritas International, MarkPress and U.S. Catholic Relief Services.After two-and-a-ha ...
Cape Town - As the world panics over the Ebola outbreak, West Africans are reportedly fleeing their countries in a bid to outrun the virus - some even headed overland for South Africa.According to the Sunday Independent, this could place South Africa at considerable risk.Johannesburg-based members of the immigrant communities from Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, told the newspaper that there is a considerable number of people attempting to reach SA, most trying to reach it overland - a 5 000km trek.One man said he alone knew of at least five people who were on their way.The newspaper reports that it would just take one carrier to change the situation in SA - particularly in a community that is largely housed in the densely populated city centre of Johannesburg - an ideal breeding ground for a communicable virus such as Ebola.In addition, these often undocumented migrants also enter the country through the porous border at Beitbridge in northern Limpopo - an entry point that has no measures such as tempe ...
South African Airways is continuing to operate flights to West Africa, and at this point there are no route changes or cancellations expected due to the current Ebola outbreak. The decision to continue to operate into West Africa is consistent with the position adopted by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Air Transport Association (IATA). However, the South African Department of Health (DOH) has issued a travel advisory banning all non-citizens travelling from high-risk countries, ie, Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, to South Africa, except if absolutely essential. All non-citizens travelling from medium-risk countries, ie, Nigeria, Kenya, Ethiopia; and low-risk countries, ie, all other countries except those mentioned above, will be subjected to extensive medical scrutiny, which will include health questionnaires, thermal scanning and examinations if necessary. South African citizens who wish to travel to these high-risk countries, as stated above, are not prevented to do so, but ...

Kenya Airways will suspend flights to Liberia's capital Monrovia and Sierra Leone's capital Freetown due to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, the company said on Saturday. The suspension of the flights will start at midnight on Tuesday Aug. 19, Kenya Airways said in a statement. The carrier, which is part-owned by Air France-KLM, flies a total of seven times a week to the two cities through Accra.

Peace and Conflict Resolution Studies GST 222 Introduction Conflict, as a social reality has been part and parcel of human existence. Whether it is in the "State of Nature" as described by Thomas Hobbes, or the history of ancient or modern empires, or even in contemporary history, marked by the emergence of the modern nation-state, all have witnessed one form of conflict or the other. Africa, like other continents of the world has witnessed series of conflicts. Some of the conflicts witnessed by the continent are the anti-colonial and anti-apartheid struggles in Angola, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa; the civil wars in Nigeria, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Sudan, Rwanda, Burundi, and Democratic Republic of Congo, among others; and communal *** ethno- religious conflicts such as those experienced in Nigeria – the Tiv-Jukun, Ife-Modakeke, Pan-Gamai, and Hausa/ Fulani-Birom, Afizere and Anaguta, among several others.It is due to the effects of conflict in terms of either moving a society forward or b ...

Science Can Help Solve Sierra Leones’s Problems The biggest problems facing Sierra Leone can be understood, addressed and solved through science. Science is instrumental in finding answers to the biggest issues of our times-from global warming and climate change to the health and socio-economic problems. The 2012 Nobel Laureate for Physic, Professor Serge Haroche from the College de France during his visit to the University of the Western Cape in South Africa said, “The world needs new technology, but it can’t simply ask for new devices. New technology is born from blue sky research, and time and trust is needed for this.” The country is growing. Every day, more people, homes, vehicles and factories are driving an ever- increasing demand for energy. Today, Sierra Leone is second among the top economics in the world. How the private sector can help the government to invest in the human resource of Sierra Leoneans and learning institutions through science and technology? A question yet unanswered. . ...

100 years of amalgamation Amalgamation is a big error. It was in the interest of the British. It has happened and so we should not cry over split milk. We should not celebrate it. We should not honour it. It should be a sober reflection. We should say look, ‘here is what the British did to us, what can we do to overcome it and move forward because we want to be part of the comity of nations that expresses Nigeria’s greatness to be at the peak. So, I do not lament it, I am sad about it, not just Nigeria but also how they sat at their Berlin Conference and tore the whole of Africa apart. Part of what you see in DRC, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Zimbabwe, etc is all down to that conference. But I am not going to lament it because those men are dead. The issue is how do we put the disastrous consequences behind us and move forward...Olisa Agbakoba discussing perspectives, new learnings and promoting debate BBM 22008C73

Where is Thabo Mbeki and Robert Gabriel Mugabe? Tony Blair AND Thabo Mbeki CLASHED OVER ROBERT MUGABE Tony Blair and former South African president Thabo Mbeki clashed on Wednesday over claims that Britain had been prepared to use military force to overthrow Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe. Mbeki alleged that the former British prime minister pressured him to join a "regime change scheme" as Zimbabwe plunged into a political and economic crisis in the early 2000s. But the claim was strongly denied by Blair's office. Both the UK as its former colonial power, and South Africa, its most powerful neighbour, have long played an intimate role in Zimbabwean affairs. But their leaders were divided on how to act when it descended into chaos following the violent seizures of white-owned farms. Blair, who had made a triumphant military intervention in Sierra Leone, was determined that Mugabe should step down whereas Mbeki was ready to accommodate him. "The problem was, we were speaking from different positions," ...

June is a significant advocacy month for the protection of children from abuse, violence exploitation and neglect. In June 2002, ILO published its first global report on Child Labour and established 12 June as World Day against Child Labour. Since then, this day is remembered each year with different themes gearing towards strengthening progress towards the 2016 target and the ratification and implementation of Conventions 138 and 182. This year’s theme says: “No to Domestic Child Labour”. Similarly June 16th is recognized in Africa as the Day of the African Child used to remember the children that were massacred in protest for their right to education in 1976 in Soweto, South Africa during the apartheid era. As in other parts of Africa, this day is usually commemorated in Sierra Leone by children, CSOs and community members. This day is usually celebrated in collaboration with the MSWGCA, UNICEF, line ministries and other NGOs with a specific theme that comes from the committee of experts based i . ...
FIFA World Cup Qualifying Wrap: Ethopia, Egypt top groups 17 June 2013 00:17 Ethiopia topped Group A of the CAF section of FIFA World Cup Qualifying, but will have to wait to see if they can play in the final round. They secured a 2-1 success at home to South Africa on Sunday, however, their place in the last phase is under threat following an announcement from FIFA that they are face an investigation for allegedly fielding an ineligible player in a fixture with Botswana on June 9. Bernard Parker had put South Africa ahead in the 33rd minute, but Getaneh Kebede equalised just before half-time and Parker then scored past his own goalkeeper with 20 minutes remaining, as Ethiopia claimed the points in Addis Ababa. In Group B, Tunisia affirmed their position as group leaders with a 1-1 draw in Equatorial Guinea. Their position in the last round was already confirmed by second- placed Cape Verde loss to Sierra Leone on Saturday, and Oussama Darragi's 64th minute penalty cancelled out Juvenal's first-half spot- ...
EDITORIAL= Fourah Bay College: How Much Lower...? We are saddened over the fact that the first institution of higher learning in sub-Saharan Africa, established in 18th February, 1827, in Freetown, Sierra Leone, is fast reducing itself to obscurity after being responsible for giving the honorable title: ‘Athens of West Africa’ to the country then, by virtue of its enviable academic prowess and significance among its neighbors as the place to go in search of higher education. In those formative years and for decades to follow, people came from as far as Britain, South Africa, Namibia, Nigeria and Ghana to name a few countries to enroll at the FBC as students. The college has and still continues to benefit from the experiences and knowledge of foreign lecturers as well. Despite these fine overtures, Fourah Bay College (FBC), we dare say, has had its toll of violent activities, riots, protests and what-have-you in the years under review. However, instead of things getting better, they seem to be getting ...

Patrick Olusegun Odegbami Born in Lagos but brought up in the northern city of Jos, the right winger rose to fame with IICC Shooting Stars of Ibadan (now known as 3SC of Ibadan). Odegbami was a part of the club's golden era and played a key role when they became the first Nigerian outfit to win a continental title - the 1976 African Cup Winners Cup. After some brilliant performances with Shooting Stars he got his first cap for the Green Eagles (as the national team was known then) against Sierra Leone on 16 October 1976. Apart from Odegbami, the side also included current Nigeria coach Christian Chukwu and was expected to make a strong showing at the 1976 Olympics in Montreal. But a mass boycott by African countries, in protest against white-ruled South Africa's presence in the Canadian city, put paid to those lofty ambitions.

I was then serving with the now disbanded London District Provost Company, in Rochester Row, close to Victoria Station. A friend of mine from the Royal Military Police (RMP) unit at Colchester, Chris, had already decided to leave after 18yrs service and throw himself in to this work, after being approached by a company then known as ‘Olive’, now Olive Group. One or two others were also considering this option with other Private Security Companies (PSCs). I’d been serving for nineteen years at that point; fifteen of those years had been spent as an RMP Close Protection (CP) Operator, following the successful completion of the CP Course at Longmoor in early 1989. A year earlier I’d returned from my second operational tour to Sierra Leone, where I’d been the Team Leader for the RMP Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) Team in Freetown. Twelve months on and I was already warned off ...

We are prepared to face Tunisian - Julius Woobay By Sigismond Nicol Sierra Leone international and Neftchi FC midfielder, Julius Woobay, yesterday intimated FDP that they are well motivated and that Leone Stars will go to Tunisia in a positive mood to meet the Corthage Eagles of Tunisia, in the 2014 World Cup Qualifying. He said the 2-2 home draw with the Tunisian side was disappointing as it denied his side the opportunity to participate in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa. ‘”it was painful when we conceded a late goal at home though we played well in the away fixture but the centre man deprived us from qualifying after denying Sheriff Suma’s goal ‘’he noted, adding that it would be a difficult match considering the fact that they have played with Tunisia twice in the 2013 African Nations Cup qualifying and that they are now prepared. “We will correct our mistakes and will make Sierra Leone proud,” he said. “Having seen their recent performance and current form in the Afr ...
South Africa face Morocco in Durban on Sunday knowing a win or draw secures an Africa Cup of Nations last-eight slot and even a loss will not necessarily end their title dreams. Victory for the 2013 hosts guarantees they stay top of the Group A table and a draw would also keep them in first place unless Cape Verde defeat Angola and finish with a superior goal difference. However, if Angola win the first clash of two Portuguese-speaking countries in the 56-year Cup of Nations, Bafana Bafana (The Boys) will go through on the head-to-head rule even if they are beaten by the Atlas Lions. It is a safe bet that South Africa coach Gordon Igesund is fully acquainted with these scenarios given the embarrassing bungle that cost the team a chance of competing at the 2012 tournament in Gabon/Equatorial Guinea. No South African Football Association official, nor then-coach Pitso Mosimane, nor anyone in the team understood the head-to-head rule, and played for a draw at home to Sierra Leone when they needed a win to qu ...
I was watching a movie tonight about Nigeria. I have been there many times and cannot associate with what they were showing. This could be about Cambodia during Pol Pot days but then maybe they will say it was worse or better, I don’t know. I am a firm believer of the term ‘go see for yourself’ but the mainstream Hollywood movies give us the ‘wonderful’ view of the world. The Nigeria portrayed in Tears of the Sun is not the Nigeria I know. The Nigeria I know is very vibrant and peaceful to the people who have never been there. We constantly see main stream movies like (Black Hawk Down which happens to be on my top list) about Somalia, Sudan, Angola, Libya, Sierra Leone and South Africa, but to name a few, not forgetting The Congo or as is now know the DRC. Rwanda made its mark too as did Uganda. It got me thinking? When will they ever produce movies based of false facts and acts of savagery about countries such as Zimbabwe, Zambia, Kenya, and Mozambique! I am not an advocate of violenc ...

THIS IS NOT A GUN PROBLEM, IT'S A PEOPLE PROBLEM Daniel Greenfield wrote this week: "Chicago, where Obama delivered his victory speech, has homicide numbers that match all of Japan and are higher than Spain, Poland and pre-war Syria. Chicago’s murder rate of 15.65 per 100,000 people looks nothing like the American 4.2 rate, the Midwestern 4.5 or the Illinois’ 5.6 rates, but it does look like the murder rates in failed countries like Rwanda, Sierra Leone and Zimbabwe. New Orleans' murder rate is ten times higher than the national average. If New Orleans were a country, it would have the 2nd highest murder rate in the world, beating out El Salvador. Louisiana went red for Romney 58 to 40, but Orleans Parish went blue for Obama 80 to 17. St. Louis has a murder rate just a little lower than Belize. Baltimore has a worse murder rate than South Africa and Detroit has a worse murder rate than Colombia. Obama won both St. Louis and Baltimore by comfortable margins. He won Detroit’s Wayne County 73 to 26. H ...
DR ORJI UZOR KALU - A QUINTESSENTIAL LEADER Before he became governor in 1999, he had already built one of the most forward-looking companies in Nigeria with branches all over the world. SLOK has grown into a formidable conglomerate controlling equity holdings in diverse multinationals within and outside Nigeria. The company owns the fast-growing First International Bank (The Gambia, Sierra Leone, Guinea, South Africa, Liberia and Botswana), SLOK Airlines registered in 1994, and the SUN Publishing Limited, publishers of the Sun and Soccer Star Newspapers. It has also managed the fastest-growing shipping outfit in the past 10 years. In politics, he is a household name.

ACE (cable system) From Wikipedia the free encyclopedia African Coast to Europe (ACE) Cable type Submarine communications cable The ACE (African Coast to Europe) submarine communications cable is a cable system undergoing construction along the West Coast of Africa between France and South Africa, planned by the ACE consortium which was initiated on June 5, 2010. The first phase of the 17,000 km-long fiber optic cable will be operational by end 2012. It will eventually connect 23 countries, either directly for coastal countries or through land links for landlocked countries, like Mali and Niger.

Leone Stars home-based head coach has said that he’s satisfied with his team’s preparation for their Orange African Nations Championship (CHAN) match against Guinea despite there is no league taking place at the moment in Sierra Leone. The match is one of several CHAN Preliminary round first leg qualifying matches slated for next weekend in some parts of the continent and it’s scheduled for the 28th September Stadium in Conakry on December 2. The CHAN is restricted to only locally based players to expose them at the international scene as senior national 'A' teams in the continent most times use overseas based players in international competitions. The CHAN was introduced by Africa’s football governing body, CAF in 2009. South Africa are hosting the third edition in 2014 and the two previous editions were hosted by Ivory Coast in 2009 and Sudan in 2011. Coach Keister, the former England based Sierra Leonean international said: “The league not playing is not an issue for me because we started tra ...
Great news on the Sierra Leone elections results from media technocrats and friends at home! so far; Hope has won over prejudice. I want to congratulate Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma on the confidence of my Countrymen in him as we hope that he will stay the course and would continue on his Agenda for change towards a more sustainable economic growth and development in Sierra Leone. 'Arn pa an pohn'. Greetings from South Africa.
Few seem to joke any more. Indeed, the last time anyone laughed out there was over the memorable head-line “BANANA CHARGED WITH SODOMY” (relating to the Reverend Canaan Banana and his alleged proclivities). Zimbabwe was just the latest African state to squander its potential, to swap civil society for civil strife and pile high its corpses. Then the wrecking virus moves on and a fresh spasm of violence erupts elsewhere. Congo, Ivory Coast, Sudan, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, even Kenya. Take your pick, for it is the essence of Africa, the recurring A-Z of horror. Therefore, as surely as Nelson Mandela took those steps from captivity to freedom, his own country will doubtless shuffle into chaos and ruin. Mark my words. One day it will be the turn of South Africa to revert to type, its farms that lie wasted and its towns that are battle zones, its dreams and expectations that lie rotting on the veld. That is the way of things. Africa rarely surprises, it simply continues to appall. When interviewed on BBC Radi ...
Happy Sunday to All my Friends In the USA, Canada,Nigeria, Ghana, South Africa, Cameroon, Benin Republic, United Kingdom, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Kenya, Sierra Leone, Philippines, South America, Pakistan, Greece, Mauritius Islands of Africa.and Everyone of the World! I love YOU!
Although Sierra Leone is one of the poorest countries in the world, its president ( Ernest Bai Koroma) is one of the richest in Africa. He is ranked amongst presidents of richer African countries like South Africa, Egypt, Nigeria, Ghana etc. May God guide Sierra Leoneans 2 vote him out on Nov. 17th this year. God help this poor nation called Sierra Leone. COMMENT.

Tunisia have announced a 27-man provisional squad to take on Leone Stars in a 2013 Africa Cup of Nations final round return leg match schedule for Monastir in Tunisia on October 13 at 18:15GMT. Most of the invited players by Coach Sami Trabelsi made the trip to Freetown last month for the first leg encounter at the National Stadium in Freetown which finished 2-2 to the jubilation of the Tunisians. Leone Stars on the other hand have named a 20-man squad including 17 foreign-based players to travel to Monastir via Tunis. The players will fly straight to Tunisia from their respectively locations. Tunisia's Carthage Eagles go into the return leg tie as favourites to qualify for the African Cup of Nations finals in South Africa commencing in two months time because of the first leg result. The two countries have gone down in the latest FIFA rankings released on Wednesday. Sierra Leone dropped eight places in the world and three places in Africa as they are now 67th globally and 14th the continent respectively. ...

ORANGE CAN 2013 OFFICIAL DRAW SET FOR JULY 5TH IN JOHANNESBURGThe Official Draw ceremony of the Orange CAN 2013 will take place in Johannesburg , South Africa, on the 5th July 2012 ( 15.00 local time) at Tanz Cafe, Emperors Palace, Ekurhuleni in Johannesburg.The qualified countries are: Mozambique, Zimbabwe, DR Congo, Ethiopia, Togo, Malawi, Uganda, Cameroon, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Cape Verde, Algeria, Egypt or Central African Republic.

HALF-TIMESouth Africa 0-1 Ethiopia South Africa coach Pitso Mosimane has a big 15 minutes coming up. The man who took charge of Bafana Bafana after the 2010 World Cup is under intense pressure in his homeland, following his failure to lead South Africa to this year's Nations Cup - all after that embarrassing blunder against Sierra Leone. He needs to find a dramatic turn-around in fortunes if he can be confident of holding onto his job.
Congratulations to our good SA locked neighbours in the mountain Kingdom of Lesotho. They have just concluded peaceful elections and there is no party disputing the results. A rare occasion on the African Continent indeed! (remember who ignite artificial revolutions and cosmetic wars for commercial ends in the motherland). There was also a very loud silence and absence of the empire up north and west in affairs of Basotho elections. But this is no surprise, let us look at the reasons thereof: 1. Lesotho, relatively poor and heavily depended on South Africa, is of no interest to the empire. 2. They have neither precious mineral resources, enough land nor oil, and this does not attract the imperialist attention nearly half as does DRC, Sudan, Libya, Ivory Coast, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Zimbabwe, Botswa, Angola etc. 3. In Lesotho, there is no superior race that needs the protection of the empire up north or west (the reason for the absence of the superior race in Lesotho is that there is nothing for them to c ...
Naomi Campbell,the American supermodel testified against Charles Taylor at the International Criminal Court after he had denied that he was never in possession of any rough diamonds from Sierra Leone. Naomi said that she had received 'dirty looking' stones(diamonds) from Taylor at a dinner in South Africa organised for Nelson Mandela. The love of women is the undoing of many African leaders.
South Africa were the biggest African risers in the Fifa rankings this month, edging up four places to 67th spot. Elsewhere, Sierra Leone rose two places to 61st spot, to lie above Nigeria (63) for the first time in their history. Ivory Coast remain top in Africa at 15th, with Ghana second highest (22nd). DR Congo were the biggest fallers, dropping five places to 124th position. The 1974 African champions are now rated below the likes of Benin, Central African Republic and Sao Tome e Principe. Similarly, Nigeria - who have competed at four World Cups and won two Africa Cup of Nations tournaments - have now dropped below Sierra Leone in the rankings. Sierra Leone, whose population of six million is dwarfed by Nigeria's total in excess of 160m, have never travelled to a World Cup and have only ever competed at two Nations Cups - in 1994 and 1996. The top seven in the African rankings were unchanged, with Tunisia moving up to eight as Egypt dropped down the rankings. World and European champions Spain still ...
