OBASANJO AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF DESTRUCTION INSTEAD OF NATION BUILDING : Great leaders write on issues and ideas that move nations forward and advance the course of human development. Obafemi Awolowo and Nnamdi Azikiwe of Nigeria, Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana, Lee Kwan Yu wrote of Singapore, Nelson Mandela of South Africa, Ghandi of India, Bill Clinton and Barrack Obama of the United States, Winston Churchill and Tony Blair of the United Kingdom, etc, have all penned great works that have become inseparable companions of scholars, political leaders, policy makers, successful businessmen, senior government administrstors, military strategists and historians around the world. Our own supposed leader, Gen (rtd) Olusegun Obasanjo, at a critical time in our nation's history, when we are confronted by an unstable political system, a yet-to-be-defined economy and serious security issues that threaten our collective existence, has found the time to only write about mundane issues as who pleaded to marry his daughter, and how ...

Can African pride be this shallow? (My Tuesday column) Perhaps I’m a despicable, counter-revolutionary, neo-colonialist settler after all. During my entire adult life, I have called myself an African. I have visited most countries on the continent and I have met and/or interviewed 13 heads of African states. I’m proud of and associate myself with the people, history and cultures of the people of Africa. I have written much about and made two documentary films on pre-colonial and early colonial African history. But now I find myself out of sync with many of those who also claim to be proud Africans. The Africa I’m proud of appears to be a different one from the one they revere. I’m deeply proud of African leaders who fought for the liberation of Africa and the emancipation of her people. I’m talking about leaders like Patrice Lumumba, Kwame Nkrumah, Leopold Senghor, Samora Machel, Kenneth Kaunda, Julius Nyerere, Nelson Mandela and Thomas Sankara. But now I find that the darling hero of so many of ...
Crappy joke, in remembrance of Kate Clayton's Joke Fridays. Rebekah Brooks dies and goes to heaven (actually we could leave it at that, but I'll soldier on). At the check-in desk, St Peter takes her details and gives her a map showing the quickest way to the toilets, snack bar, gift shop etc. however she does notice, and remark upon, the large number of clocks on the wall behind the saintly Pete. "Oh these" he says, "these clock the rate at which a person tells lies during their time on earth. Here you can see Nelson Mandela's", and he indicates a clock that seems stuck at 3 seconds past midnight - " whilst this is Henry Kissinger's": showing a clock on which the hour and minute hand are whirling round quite rapidly. "Gosh" says Rebekah, "I had no idea we were monitored so closely - I thought it was only the CIA and NTW that were so obsessive. But, where's the clock for my friend Tony Blair?" St Pete looks a bit embarrassed. "It's been a bit hot of late ... I'm afraid Jesus is using that one as a desk fan ...
Brazil World Cup 2014:Holland 5 Spain 1.God just hammered and disgraced the Spanish football team for their crime against humanity: RACISM.When will the mentally-retarded Spanish football fans start to throw bananas on the field to exhibit their madness on a global stage?Tony Blair once said Nelson Mandela not only made racism an immoral act but another brand of stupidity.The Dutch guys tactically collapsed the Spanish empire with five heavy blows.This humiliating pain in Brazil for a defending champion Spain is enough to humble the so-called homeland of the best team in Europe.For Spain to win this world cup in Brazil is going to be a tall dream.As tall as Cocoa House in Ibadan Nigeria.
My favorite politican worldwide from today and in the history in general is Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, George H.W.Bush, Mitt Romney, Tony Blair, Margaret Thatcher, Chancellor Helmut Kohl, Chancellor Angela Merkel, Michaeil Gorbatschow and Nelson Mandela.
In the United Kingdom, Tony Blair, a lawyer by profession, was the only Prime Minister who won the election three consective times. He developd UK massively. In Russia, Vladimir Putin, served his 2 terms. When Mediedev was president, Putin was Prime Minister and as Iam talking nw, Putin is once more the president of Russia. Russia devlopd tremendously under Putin. In USA, we hav Barack Obama, a lawyer himself who came in when the US was in some financial woes and his policies has helped the US recover from the worst economic crisis. In South Africa, we r all aware of what Nelson Mandela did to the pple of SA and to the Apartheid regime. Despite being tortured in prison, he never retariated the misdid. Such is a spirit of a real lawyer. He focused on the issues affecting everyone regardless who they were, what they had done and where they came from. Fortunately, here in Mw, we have a presidential candidate who is a QC lawyer kwn World wide than Putin, Obama in their real profession, who has come to serve e ...
"Neither Bush nor Tony Blair has provided any evidence that such weapons exist. But what we know is that Israel has weapons of mass destruction. Nobody talks about that. Why should there be one standard for one country, especially because it is black, and another one for another country, Israel, that is white. Many people say quietly, but they don't have the courage to stand up and say publicly, that when there were white secretary generals you didn't find this question of the United States and Britain going out of the United Nations. But now that you've had black secretary generals like Boutros Boutros Ghali, like Kofi Annan, they do not respect the United Nations. They have contempt for it. This is not my view, but that is what is being said by many people." Nelson Mandela

The Real Mandela: GANGSTER MANDELA'S LEGACY ~ Zoleka Mandela wrote: 'From the time I was barely eight years old to the age of 14, I had been sexually abused by some of the adults who should have been looking after me." - Nelson Mandela's granddaughter South Africa is famous for its child sex rings. Multi-millionaire Mandela Nelson Mandela is as fake as Tony Blair or Jimmy Savile. Nelson Mandela's family are rich capitalists. His children and grandchildren are active in more than 100 companies and hold their wealth in a number of trusts. Some of the trusts own expensive properties in Johannesburg. The Mandelas are involved in a Mandela clothing range, minerals, the controversial Aurora mine, real estate, railway engineering, medical firms, and entertainment. Mandela family rakes in millions Mandela, said to be worth over £10 million, and Prince Bandar. Saudi Prince Bandar led attacks on Syria Christians. The owners of the Aurora mine have been accused of abusing their workers and selling mine assets they ...
"He stood utterly opposed to the notion that justice is a gift of the rich and powerful, either in South Africa or anywhere in the world. This makes it all the more nauseous to witness the likes of Tony Blair and David Cameron issuing public tributes to him. While Nelson Mandela was a champion of the dispossessed and oppressed throughout his life, people such as Blair and Cameron are servants of the rich. Likewise, the sight of President Obama paying giving a public eulogy in Washington also reflects hypocrisy. The only thing that Nelson Mandela had in common with Barack Obama was the color of his skin. Other than that, along with Tony Blair and David Cameron, Obama is a moral dwarf (...) In the UK, Thatcher and the Tories regarded Nelson Mandela as a terrorist, while the current Prime Minister, David Cameron in 1989 accepted an all-expenses paid trip to apartheid South Africa while Mandela was still in prison, funded by a firm that was lobbying against the trade and economic sanctions that played a key r ...
The parade of charlatans paying tribute to Nelson Mandela takes cant and hypocrisy to a whole new level. In his days when he symbolised the fighting spirit of the working class in South Africa, when he stood firm as an advocate for the equality of the black South African workers and being prepared to take measures to defend them from the savagery of the apartheid government he was branded a terrorist. Now he is no threat to the power and privilege of capitalism he is canonised. This roll-call of dishonour is not all-inclusive: Royalty, David Cameron (him and his mates favoured hanging him), William Hague, Tony Blair (the butcher of the Iraqui working class) and friend of Rupert Murdoch, Boris Johnson. All of them united in their determination to destroy every gain made by the working class while enriching the class Mandela fought in his best days.

JOHANNESBURG, May 26 – Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe criticises Nelson Mandela for being too soft on whites, in a documentary giving a rare and intimate look into the family life of one of Africa’s longest serving and most vilified leaders. In a cosy lunch setting with his wife and children, the 89-year old speaks on a wide range of issues from his controversial hold on power, to his relationships with former British premiers Tony Blair and Margaret Thatcher. The two-and-a-half hour interview, described in detail by British and South African media ahead of its airing, shows the usually bellicose and sharp-tongued Mugabe as a loving family man. Dali Tambo, the son of South African anti- apartheid hero Oliver Tambo, produced the documentary, which will be broadcast on South African public television next Sunday. In the programme, Tambo dines with Mugabe’s family at his wife Grace’s dairy farm. The interview comes just months before crucial general elections in the country which in recent decade ...
IF YOU ARE 40 YEARS AND BELOW, please note that the future u pray for urself in this country will not come if u still put ur faith in many of these leaders. They came out of political office richer than they went in. Did Bill Clinton, Tony Blair, George Bush, John Kuffour and Nelson Mandela come out of office richer than they went in? Don't tell me this is Nigeria for we have had good examples here too: - Balewa had a VW Beetle car, a wrist watch and transistor radio. - Shehu Shagari is not sitting on d board of any multinational company today. - Muhammadu Buhari did not even have a house of his own when he left office. Ditto Gowon. - Alex Ekwueme had N11million before he became Vice President but left with N4million! - Lateef Jakande rode his personal Toyota Crown and lived in his house till today. - Adekunle Ajasin went into office and left with the same 4 pairs of agbada and a battered Peugeot 504. et cete ra! Look around u at d ward, local, state and national levels; there are still men and women like ...
A Tale of Two O'Hanlons: Siobhan O'Hanlon was an IRA volunteer and later a Sinn Fein activist. She was part of the first Sinn Fein delegation to meet with Tony Blair in 1997. Siobhan played a central role in the negotiations that lead to the signing of the Good Friday Agreement. In 2001, she arranged and accompanied Gerry Adams on a trip to South Africa and to meetings with Nelson Mandela. During the visit, Mandela unveiled a memorial, on Robben Island to the ten Irish Hunger Strikers who died in 1981. Siobhan was tireless campaigner for breast cancer awareness and organised many conferences on the issue of mobile screening units. She was a co-founder of the internationally acclaimed West Belfast cultural festival - Feile an Phobail. Siobhan was also a great advocate for the rights of adult sufferers of Down Syndrome. She died in 2006. I'm sure her sister Eilis is a nice woman. But it is sad that the Irish people know more about her revisionist and career-niche articles (Niece of Provisional IRA founder w ...
Dear CBS Outdoor, Your blanket tube advertising invites me to "Influence my world" by apparently taking part in product surveys and opinion polls. Far be it from me to deny your authority in this respect, but it's only rational that I should want some evidence before I take part. So, here are some people who have undoubtedly influenced our world in their own various ways: Aung San Suu Chi, Lech Walesa, Florence Nightingale, Che Guevara, Kim Jong Un, Tony Blair, David Attenborough, Armando Ianucci, Nelson Mandela, Kevin Bacon, Samuel L Jackson. Please tell me, CBS Outdoor, which of these luminaries have successfully influenced the world by doing product surveys? Thought not. You might want to rethink "influence" and "world"; because I think you're devaluing them a la "awesome"...
Samuel Kariuki How Raila Earned My Vote I'm a social democrat by political orientation. If I was in UK I would be with Tony Blair in Labour Party, if in Germany I would be a member of SDP if in US I would be a democrat. I believe this is what Raila is ideologically. That is what is political philosophy is. That is the first reason why he has my vote for no other candidate gets anywhere close to social democrat ideals. That is why all those among the masses want to be listened to turn to him because they see him as one who will best understand and respond to their needs. When you talk of championing for democratic ideals and struggles against government oppression he scores higher than any other presidential candidate. It is people in his league such as Ken Matiba, Charles Rubia, Martin Shikuku, Willy Mutunga, Gibson Kamau Kuria, Gitobu Imanyara, and Koigi Wamwere among many others who paid with their own lives as they struggled for freedom. The truth is no one can choose to suffer for what he doesn’t be ...
List of world leaders who studied law: Tony Blair, Barrack Obama, Nelson Mandela, Tunku Abdul Rahman, Benazir Bhutto :)
What do the following people have on common? Martin Luther King, Jr., Carol Burnett, JFK, Jaques Cousteau, Norman Schwarzkopf, Paul Harvey, Rosa Parks, Dave Thomas, Colin Powell, Andy Griffith, Nelson Mandela, Estee Lauder, Tony Blair, Joe DiMaggio, Yo-Yo Ma, Thurgood Marshall, Walt Disney & Elie Wiesel??? They have all been honored with the Presidential Medal of Freedom!! So I must ask, what kind of award is this?? I've read that it's pretty much given by the president to whoever he wants to give it to. The criteria are broad and subjective. The list of honorees, from Ronald Reagan to Joan Ganz Cooney (producer of Sesame St.) makes the award itself seem silly and not very distinguished. Even if the situation did fit the ambiguous criteria for the Medal of Freedom (which it does not), we need to honor the Webster men with something that can't be shared by Jack Nicklaus & Sidney Poitier anyway.
i love Barack Obama, just as i do Paul Kagame, Nelson Mandela, Tony Blair & Margaret Thatcher. oh and Clinton too.
Principle...losely defined means a firm belief in a particular position or truth which will not waiver irrespective of the everchanging circumstances. Such truth whether many agree with it or not, the holder will protect to the end of their lives. This has been demonstrated by many a wise including amongst which are Nelson Mandela, Mother Theresa, Mahatma Ghandi and Fidel Castro. ArchBishop emiritus Tutu has continued to display this character for the whole of his religious life as man of the clergy and a civil activist. I want to applaud him again for the position he has taken with regard to the visitation by Tony Blair, former British minister.
