Can you see now that Jonathan knows who the Boko Haram members are. No wonder US had to live Dasuki rejects UN or AU-backed force against Boko Haram on january 23, 2015 at 3:40 pm Nigeria’s top security official on Friday ruled out the need for a United Nations or African Union-backed force to fight Boko Haram, saying the country and its partners could handle the threat. Possible “enhanced international support” against Boko Haram will be discussed on the sidelines of an AU summit later this month, given fears about the group’s threat to regional stability. But national security adviser Sambo Dasuki, a former army colonel, said wider assistance would not be necessary. “It’s something that we can do. It’s absolutely something we can do,” he told BBC World Service radio in an interview. “I think as it is we are in good shape to address the issue with those partners, Niger, Chad and Cameroon.” Representatives from Nigeria, Niger, Chad and Cameroon met this week to thrash out details of a ...

Last Sierra Leone region to face Ebola hit hard Filed Under: Ebola; VHF Robert Roos | News Editor | CIDRAP News | Nov 10, 2014 The last region in Sierra Leone to be struck by Ebola now has had 50 deaths, the United Nations (UN) said today, in the wake of a warning from the top UN official to guard against complacency following reports of declining cases in some areas of the three hard-hit countries. In other developments, Sierra Leone reported 111 Ebola cases yesterday, the highest daily count since August, according to a media report, while large new funding pledges were made by Japan and by the African Union in association with other African groups. Also today, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported that the Ebola case in a 2-year-old Guinean girl who became Mali's first case-patient was preceded by a series of fatal cases in her family. The WHO said confidence is growing that her illness did not trigger any further spread in Mali. Sierra Leone region hit after long resistance In a situation repo ...
Nigeria unveils counter-terrorism strategy at UN Oghogho Obayuwana (New York) and John Okeke (Abuja) Aminu-WaliNIGERIA moves Monday to secure international support for its anti-insurgency campaign as it unveils its counter-terrorism strategy at the ongoing 69th session of the United Nations General Assembly Meeting (UNGA) in New York. The Nigerian mission to the United Nations (UN) working in liaison with Abuja was putting finishing touches to one of the country’s main presentations on terrorism to the global body at the weekend. Responding to The Guardian’s enquiry on Nigeria’s general concerns in this regard, high level officials at the Nigeria House disclosed that the Federal Government was poised to ask the UN to support its strategy as a more enduring instrument of curbing terrorism and most importantly, “stamping it out from its roots.” In presenting its policy dialogue on terrorism at the UN, the Federal Government would also now be pushing the passage of a Security Council Resolution ai ...
Political Science and International Relations is one of the popular optional subjects for the Civil Services examination. It is assumed that the subject is too vast to prepare from the UPSC examination’s perspective, but it is a misconception. The fact lies that strategically Political Science is one of the safest optional subjects for the said examination. The subject covers a wide gamut of areas such as- Indian Constitution and its Political System; International Institutions and foreign policy of India which prove to be very useful in the General Studies also. It also covers a wide gamut of aspects like globalization, liberalization, environmental issues, Human Rights, International Monetary Institutions (IMF, World Bank, WTO) which are important aspects of the General Studies paper in the contemporary times. International Institutions like United Nations and its organs and agencies, regional organizations like the European Union, SAARC, NAFTA, and African Union which find a place in the syllabus of ...

FACT SHEET: U.S. Response to the Ebola Epidemic in West Africa As the President has stated, the Ebola epidemic in West Africa and the humanitarian crisis there is a top national security priority for the United States. In order to contain and combat it, we are partnering with the United Nations and other international partners to help the Governments of Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Nigeria, and Senegal respond just as we fortify our defenses at home. Every outbreak of Ebola over the past 40 years has been contained, and we are confident that this one can—and will be—as well. Our strategy is predicated on four key goals: Controlling the epidemic at its source in West Africa; Mitigating second-order impacts, including blunting the economic, social, and political tolls in the region; Engaging and coordinating with a broader global audience; and, Fortifying global health security infrastructure in the region and beyond. The United States has applied a whole-of-government response to the epidemic, which ...

From the Draft constitution ya Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) I learn that the EEF Youth League age bracket is 14-25 years as prescribed by the United Nations (UN) model, and not 15-35 years as prescribed by African Union (AU) model. I think its a well calculated move, Based on general and average age group of its leadership; using the AU model puts them at risk of having Youth League leaders being older than the Central Committee leadership.
Cameroon and its "born again" bilingualism What is President Biya's Cameroon? It is indeed a country that has not defined itself in relation to the African Union,the European Union, the United Nations or its boundaries. Is Cameroon's nationalism civic, ethnic or imperial from France? Is Cameroon in West or Sub Saharan Africa? Is it a democracy, a regime-state or a compound polity like Saudi Arabia? Or is it better described as a military state? Although Cameroon has an official policy of bilingualism, it is in practice very much a Francophone country.This is not just because more than three-quarters of its 25 million people belong to the French-speaking regions, but especially because English is neither protected nor encouraged officially.Except in the South West and North West Regions, Anglophones must learn French to survive and succeed in their various occupations.In the public services and in major state-owned companies, the way up is totally barred from Anglophones who cannot speak French.

Jonathan may be Nigeria’s last president -Igbo leaders Igbo Leaders of Thought, a group of prominent Igbo political leaders, rose from a meeting in Enugu State on Wednesday with a warning that President Goodluck Jonathan may become the last president of a united Nigeria, if politicians from the North East and North West continue to sponsor the activities of the Boko Haram sect. The group maintained that the terror campaign of the sect was an ethno/religious war being waged by unnamed Northern political leaders who seek to take control of the Presidency... The statement read in part: “We wish to draw the attention of the international community especially the United Nations, African Union and ECOWAS, to the ongoing daily attack on the foundation of the Nigerian state by a ruthless, barbaric and well oiled Islamist jihadist killing machine, is a political war funded and waged by ethno/religious bigots who believe that they are born with divine right to rule others perpetually.

Why learn Arabic?10 great reasons to start learning Arabic Are you considering learning Arabic? But you are not sure why it might be beneficial? In addition to the reasons why everyone should learn a language, here are 10 solid reasons why Arabic might be an excellent choice for you. 1. Arabic is the 5th most commonly spoken native language in the world. Arabic is the official language of over 20 countries and there are well over 300 million native speakers of the language. These speakers are largely concentrated in the Middle East, but there are minority groups of native speakers throughout the world. It is also an official language of the United Nations, the Arab League, the Organization of Islamic Conference, and the African Union. 2. Arabic is the liturgical language of Islam. In addition to the millions of native speakers, many more millions know Arabic as a foreign language, since as the language of the Qu'ran, it is understood by Muslims throughout the world.  3. There is a high demand and low su ...
April 22, 2014 Rwanda Genocide Betray by AU/UN Repeating itself in South Sudan President Silva Kirr and Mr. Riek Machar must be held individually responsible for the crime against humanity and war crimes being committed in South Sudan. The two leaders suffer gross lack of appreciation of human value. Mr. Kirr and Machar must unequivocally renounce senseless criminal ethnic violence being committed by their militia supporters and take concrete positive steps to secure peace and stability of South Sudan. South Sudan is turning to be another repetition of the Rwanda betray by the African Union and United Nations failing in protecting civilian population from mass slaughter. African Union and United Nations must act swiftly and firmly to cause cessation of hostilities. The final peace solution to the South Sudan vicious conflict lies in creating more inclusive Political System. The conflicting parties and AU/UN mediators must design a new strategy of negotiations that address wide constituencies affected by t ...

SPECIAL REPORT BY THE FP GROUP: Oath: Inside the United Nations' Darfur Debacle PART 2 "NOW WE WILL KILL YOU" Last April, in the dead of night, five men dressed in Sudanese military uniforms and armed with AK-47 rifles swaggered up to the U.N.-African Union peacekeeping outpost in the East Darfur town of Muhajeria and shot open the front gate's padlock. As they entered the darkened compound, the intruders opened fire, unloading several rounds through the wall of the base's military briefing room, spilling a handful of hot spent cartridges on the ground as they advanced. A lone Nigerian peacekeeper standing sentry at the compound's entrance returned fired as a second Nigerian soldier entered the fray, scuffling with one of the assailants in an attempt to wrestle him to the ground. The attackers finally retreated as reinforcements in an armored personnel vehicle rolled toward the compound, ending the firefight before anyone got seriously hurt. But the night was just getting started. One of the armed intrude ...

$50bn Siphoned Out Of Africa Annually – UN ABUJA-THE United Nations,UN has decried what it called the ‘alarming’ rate at which huge sums of money, totaling over $50billion is channelled out of Africa annually. Making the revelation Thursday when he paid a courtesy call on the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal, UN’s Deputy Secretary General, Mr. Jan Eliason, said it is more regrettable because the money would have been used to develop the continent. Speaking on Nigeria’s contributions to global peace, Eliason said “Nigeria is also a world leader in building security, peacekeeping and economic development, and is a strong ally to the United Nations.” He said Nigeria has also “embraced its multiplicity as a resource and not a problem, and this is a role model for other African countries.” In his remarks, Tambuwal commended the UN for it’s support to the Nigerian economy and Africa as a critical part of the African Union 2063 Strategy. According to him, the Nigerian p ...

As many as 410 additional soldiers would be sent to Somalia to buttress the African Union force there and guard United Nations facilities.
Uganda is set to deploy as many as 410 extra troops to Somalia to guard United Nations facilities there after a surge in attacks by al Qaeda-affiliated Al Shabab militants in the war-torn Horn of Africa nation, the Ugandan military said Sunday. Military spokesman, Lt. Col Paddy Ankunda said the guard unit will bolster the African Union peace keeping mission in Somalia, known as Amisom with the “extra strength” required to restore order in the chaotic port city of Mogadishu. The deployment comes just a few days after a car bomb exploded outside the headquarters of Somalia’s intelligence agency in Mogadishu, killing at least 12 people, the third deadly attack to hit the capital in as many weeks. “The U.N. guard unit will free the bulk of Amisom forces from escort duties to pursue Al Shabab in their hide-outs,” Lt. Col. Ankunda said. “This force is the first of its kind under Amisom.” Following last week’s attack, the U.N. Security Council said it would “continue to support all internationa ...

Feb 27, 2014 01:20 AM In December 2013, France intervened in an African civil war for the second time in a year, again under impeccable United Nations authority, but it now faces an increasingly difficult predicament in the Central African Republic (CAR). The first intervention, in Mali, was a success for French President François Hollande, as French and African Union (AU) troops restored stability and blocked an imminent takeover by the Maghreb-based and al Qaeda-linked extreme Islamist group Ansar Dine. In CAR, however, several constraints obtain, such as local conditions, French public reluctance to commit more troops, and the unwillingness of the European Union and the United States to help. These are making it more likely that CAR will collapse into what a U.N. official has called ethnic-religious cleansing, even though the country has no history of religious strife. Even partition now looms, despite desperate efforts by CAR Interim President Catherine Samba Panza; half of CAR’s 4.6 million people ...

Kenya calls for speedy repatriation of Somali refugees The government of Kenya wants the Somali federal government to speed up the repatriation of the refugees living in the United Nations-designated camps in Kenya. Nairobi argues that the East African nation is now witnessing stability following successful joint operation by African Union and Somali government forces against al-Shabaab fighters. The Somali government says that it too wants its refugees resettled but says the process must be gradual. The recent calls by Nairobi to have Mogadishu repatriate its refugees comes barely days after the UN refugee agency called for an international protection of Somali asylum-seekers. Although UNHCR was a signatory in the tripartite agreement signed between Kenya and Somalia in regards to the repatriation of more than half a million Somali refugees from the camps in Kenya, the international refugee body says that insecurity still remains a major challenge especially in the south and central parts of the country. ...
Dear Sir Morgan Today I received the letter dated 19 November 2008, which was correctly communicated through the South African Embassy in Harare, written to me by your Secretary General, the Hon Tendai Biti, MP, concerning Constitutional Amendment No 19. I must confess that the contents of this letter came to me as a complete surprise, causing me grave concern. As you know, Mr Biti's letter describes the decisions on Zimbabwe, taken by the November 9 SADC Extraordinary Summit Meeting held in South Africa, as "a nullity". The letter goes further to say that "it is then difficult for any of the parties to move in any direction for fear of legitimising the SADC Summit 'ruling'". The first point I would like to make with regard to the foregoing is that, as you know, we were appointed as facilitator of the Zimbabwe Dialogue by the SADC. This position was later endorsed by both the African Union (AU) and the United Nations (UN), both of which expressly rely on SADC to facilitate the Zimbabwe Dialogue, and thus ...

Anyone may participate by editing, suggesting additional content and/or signing this letter. If you wish to sign, please leave your name, affiliation (if applicable) and country of origin or residence in a comment.   -     Dear Foreign Ministers of the United Nations:   As we write to you, life in Central African Republic (CAR) has descended into unimaginable, uncontrolled bloodshed. French and African Union peacekeepers, deployed to CAR to protect civilians, are unable to stop widespread brutal sectarian violence. Assaults on Muslims and their property in whole neighborhoods in Bangui and in towns liberated from Seleka (Muslim) militias are forcing Muslims to leave their homes. They flee because peacekeepers currently lack the manpower necessary to protect them from marauding bands of anti-Balaka (Christian) militia intent on killing all Muslims, brutalizing their broken bodies and destroying their property; attempting, it seems, to erase their existence from the pages of CAR’s history.   Sunday m ...
By Media Coulibaly BANGUI (Reuters) - Rwandan peacekeepers intervened on Sunday to halt a lynching of Muslims, shooting dead one member of a crowd that had killed two Muslims in the capital of Central African Republic, a Rwandan military spokesman said. Residents reported at least nine people killed in inter-religious violence at the weekend. It was the third daylight lynching reported this week in Bangui as violence rages between the Christian majority and Muslims accused of links to Seleka, a former rebel grouping that seized power last year and ruled until January. The presence of 1,600 French soldiers and 5,000 African Union troops has failed to stop the violence, which the United Nations says has killed more than 2,000 people and displaced nearly a quarter of the country's 4.5 million people. A spokesman for Rwanda's military, which is taking part in the AU mission, said its soldiers fired warning shots at a Christian crowd in the Miskine neighborhood of north Bangui. "A mob of Christians killed two ...

OTTAWA — Canada's Foreign Affairs department was keeping close tabs on the deteriorating situation in South Sudan on Thursday and called for perpetrators of ethnic attacks to be identified and charged. "Canada is deeply concerned by the reports of ethnically targeted violence in South Sudan," said Rick Roth, a spokesman for Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird. Roth said officials were hopeful peace talks in Ethiopia would lead to a ceasefire and end the conflict the United Nations says has so far killed 1,000 people and has displaced about 200,000. "Canada calls for an immediate stop to the fighting ... and expresses its strong support for the efforts of the UN mission and the African Union to help the parties resolve the current conflict through dialogue," Roth said. The UN says there is mounting evidence of international Human Rights abuses, including the killing of civilians and captured soldiers and forcing civilians to join the conflict. Tensions have been mounting in oil-rich South Sudan — which ...

Washington (AFP) - A US operation to airlift some 850 Burundians into the Central African Republic to help restore security to the strife-torn nation should be completed this week, a top US official said Tuesday. Washington also welcomed Belgian plans to send up to 150 troops to join a French and African Union (AU) force, and revealed that it had a few American troops on the ground in Bangui to help with the airlift. Central Africa spiralled into chaos after a March coup in which the mainly Muslim Seleka rebel group overthrew President Francois Bozize. France deployed its troops to the impoverished and notoriously unstable country on December 5 under a UN mandate to support the African peacekeeping force that had been struggling to quell the violence. In a further sign of US support for the international efforts, State Department Assistant Secretary Linda Thomas-Greenfield told US lawmakers she was planning to visit the country soon with US envoy to the United Nations, Samantha Power. "We're deeply concer ...

WHY JONATHAN DID NOT SPEAK AT MANDELA'S MEMORIAL SERVICE - ABATI Presidential spokesperson, Reuben Abati, has stated that Nigeria’s President Jonathan’s inability to give a personal eulogy was not an insult on the president as believed by many people. Abati said that Jonathan did not speak because there was no need for a personal speech as the Chairman of the African Union (AU) Commission, Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, had already spoken on behalf of all African leaders. According to Daily Independent: It was good enough that Jonathan attended the event in solidarity with the people of South Africa, said Abati, who described the attendant fuss back home as an “indication of a rising, minority tendency to read the negative into every official item”. Abati added that “it is a classic case of much ado about nothing” and “a complete non-issue”. According to him: “The late Madiba’s burial is not a United Nations debating session. It is what it is a burial: a solemn, national ceremony. “Leaders ...

PRESIDENT OBASANJO BIOGRAPHY Olusegun Obasanjo served as President of Nigeria from May 1999 to May 2007. It was the culmination of a life spent on the front line of African politics. In 2008 he was appointed by the United Nations as a Special Envoy for Africa and has since overseen democratic elections on behalf of the African Union and Ecowas in countries across the continent. He has since emerged as an advocate for investment into the country and with the launch of his Foundation will tackle issues critical to advance across the Continent. Obasanjo became President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in 1999, following the demise of the military dictatorship of General Sani Abacha. After fifteen years of repressive rule that saw Nigeria slip into pariah status internationally, Obasanjo quickly emerged as the front-runner to lead the country’s historic transition back to democracy.

Closure of Kenya Refugee Camp Condemned Local and international rights groups have criticised demands by a group of Kenyan legislators to close down a massive refugee camp on the country’s northern border with Somalia. The proposal to shut the camp follows last month’s attack on a Nairobi shopping centre by the militant Somali group al-Shabab in which 67 people were killed and more than 300 injured. In the wake of the attack, Kenya’s parliamentary committee on security called for the immediate closure of the Dadaab settlement, run by the United Nations refugee agency UNHCR approximately 100 kilometres south of the border with Somalia. Dadaab is home to nearly 500,000 refugees, most of whom fled conflict in southern Somalia over the years and live in several different camps within the settlement. KENYAN PARLIAMENTARIANS SEE CAMP AS THREAT The Kenyan parliament’s committee for national security has claimed that the site has become a training ground for Islamic extremists masquerading as refugees.

African Union Shame! Just like its predecesor OAU! African dictators & emerging despots must now lick their wounds! Always blame some other forces. Endless blame to hawk around! Let Africans quit the United Nations too! In fact African countries should quit Africa and the world and move to another planet. AU summit in Addis Ababa is a meeting of pure political hyenas planning how they could cage Africans to kill and eat them without complaining or intervention from any quarter. Anybody saying anything different is a primitive "porojo-ist". African subjects and opponents of ICC dont know they are playing with fire! Dishonest assertions could serve short-term interests. Actually, ICC doesnt need you. People like you belonging to the ruled class are the ones who need protections of ICC. Why? The ruling class can protect itself. Ruling class is the perpetrator of impunity. Ruling class does not need you. You are a nobody as far as they are concerned. Don't for once think the ruled exist to protect the rulers ...

Apparently the African Union, European Union and United Nations have got together and released some funds and packages to their rightful owners, of which I apparently am one.

WILL THE AFRICAN UNION CONDEMN EGYPT? President Mohamed Morsi of Egypt was neither a despot, a tyrant or tin can dictator as his foes are trying to portray him. He was a democratically elected president of a country who received his mandate to govern at the ballot box with more than 51% of the votes cast in elections that were generally free and fair and conducted under the authority of the very military that has now used the excuse of demonstrations and civil unrest to oust him from power. If this had happened in any Sub-Saharan country, the condemnations would have been pouring in thick and fast from; the United Nations, Western diplomatic missions and the African Union. But because Morsi is the candidate of the Muslim Brotherhood, a group that is viewed with suspicion by many in the Western controlled international community, his ouster has not raised any ire in the West and the African Union countries are willing to turn a blind eye to a reversal of the democratic gains that have been made in Egypt.

Hello NBA, Lawyers? Has the Law School been hijacked? Com/Gov Oshiomhole said: “Recently, I watched the president of the NBA saying in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, that the governors’ forum should be discarded.“I think the factor of location influenced his conclusion. He betrayed his oath to defend Nigerians on the right to associate.“One of the fundamental rights of every person, including governors, presidents, is the right of association. If presidents have the right to African Union, to United Nations, to all the other formal and informal gatherings, how can the president of a learned community suggest that the NGF be proscribed on account of difficulties on whether 16 is more than 19, although he was unable to provide the answer. “If we unlearned people don’t know, the learned people should know. Then if learned people don’t know that 19 is more than 16, then I suggest that all of you should be proscribed.”He explained that when a nation is led by characters who would not stand by the tru ...
UN vows 'despicable' attack will not end Somalia mission Jun 20, 2013 - 10:25 African Union force in Somalia (AMISOM) soldiers respond on June 19, 2013 to an attack on the UN compound in Mogadishu. AFP PHOTO MOGADISHU, Somalia, June 20, 2013 (AFP) - UN chief Ban Ki-moon expressed outrage at a "despicable" Islamist attack on a UN compound in Somalia which left 16 dead but vowed that the organisation would not end its work in the troubled country. Al-Qaeda-linked Shebab insurgents killed nine people as they shot and blasted their way into the UN compound in Mogadishu Wednesday, the most serious attack on the United Nations there in recent years. Three foreigners including two South Africans in the UN compound died, along with a Somali UN worker, two Somali security guards and three civilians in the surrounding streets, officials said. Seven attackers also died in the assault. Ban telephoned Somalia's President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud soon after the attack, UN spokesman Martin Nesirky said. "The secretary gene ...

MALI Mali mediators hopeful of accord to pave way for vote Burkina Faso’s mediators hosting talks between Mali’s government and armed Tuareg rebels said Monday they hoped for an agreement to enable elections to be held next month. “We’re counting on to conclude an accord,” Burkina Faso Foreign Minister Djibrill Bassole said after a weekend of talks between Malian officials and the Tuareg rebels who control the key northeastern city of Kidal. But he warned that “distrust” persisted between the rivals, following an eruption of deadly fighting last week as government troops advanced towards Kidal following reports of “ethnic cleansing” there. Later Monday, Burkina Faso President Blaise Compaore met the Bamako and Tuareg delegations in the presence of United Nations, African Union and European Union representatives, an AFP correspondent reported. It is a question “of removing the sticking points” that are blocking a deal, said a person involved in the discussions, who requested anonymity ...
June 6, 2013 OPEN LETTER TO THE CHAIRPERSON OF THE AFRICAN UNION Your Excellency, Re : Reaction by the Rwandan Diaspora of Canada to the public statement by President Jakaya Kikwete calling on Rwanda to negotiate with the FDLR The Rwandan Diaspora of Canada takes great exception to the remarks made by Tanzania’s President Jakaya Kikwete at the African Union (AU) Summit, May 26 in Addis Ababa, where he called upon Rwanda to enter negotiations with the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (FDLR). This well-known terrorist organization, according to the United Nations (UN) own definition, has wreaked havoc for the past 20 years in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo and surroundings. The FDRL leadership is comprised chiefly of those Interahamwe militia and the former Rwandan army (ex-FAR) responsible for the 1994 genocide against Tutsi, and their recruits over the years. Their killings of innocent civilians and rape of women were extended to the eastern DRC as documented in various Unite ...

African leaders create emergency military force May 28, 2013 in Africa, News Addis Ababa — African leaders decided yesterday to immediately establish a military rapid reaction force to deal with regional security emergencies, moving to reduce the continent’s reliance on outside forces and funds for its defence. Reuters The move, made at an African Union (AU) summit in Addis Ababa, followed calls from several leaders for an African defence capacity to be created right away, given the persistence of conflicts and rebellions on the continent. Plans for an African Standby Force have existed for more than a decade. But delays in the creation of this contingent has led to criticism that Africa has for too long been slow to do its own peacekeeping, relying instead on help and funding from the United Nations and Western donors. The text of the AU Assembly decision, seen by Reuters, said the immediate rapid response force would be formed from voluntary contributions of troops, equipment and funds by member sta ...
How can we have have when we have such leaders heading AU and determining policy?! "Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo (born 5 June 1942) is an Equatoguinean politician who has been President of Equatorial Guinea since 1979. He ousted his uncle, dictator Francisco Macías Nguema, in an August 1979 military coup and has overseen Equatorial Guinea's emergence as an important oil producer, beginning in the 1990s. Obiang was Chairperson of the African Union from 31 January 2011 to 29 January 2012. Obiang is Africa's longest serving leader, having been in power for three decades.[1] Equatorial Guinea is one of the continent’s largest producers of oil, but ranks very poorly in the United Nations Human Development Index; the vast majority of Equatorial Guineans hardly have access to clean drinking water."
The African Union (AU) formerly known as the Oranisation of African Union celebrated 50 years since its formation...but what is really there to celebrate when the AU had failed to curb the femine that attacked and killed millions in Somalia and Sudan in 2003. What can the AU celebrate when so much of Africas resources are still being exported to foreign countries for processing and manufacturing and then sold back to Africa by these multi-international corps.(your De Beers,BhP Billiton etc). What can we celebrate as Africans when so much of our culture is influenced by American pop culture. What can the AU celebrate when it still has to by-pass its resolutions through the United Nations...we as Africans dont need the AU for self-realisation...we need to burn all these institutions and bring the gold back to the people Robert Sobukwe said it,Africa is for Africans

Addis Ababa, Ethiopia (AP) — Eleven African countries signed a United Nations-drafted peace deal on Sunday to stabilize the troubled Central African country of Congo, where rebels allegedly backed by neighboring countries last year threatened to oust the government. Opening the agreement-signing meeting at the African Union headquarters in Addis Ababa, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said peace, security and cooperation framework for Congo would bring stability to the region. "The signing ceremony is a significant even in itself. But it is only the beginning of a comprehensive approach that will require sustained engagement. The framework before you outlines commitments and oversight mechanisms which aim at addressing key national and regional issues," Ban said in his speech. Congo, Rwanda, Burundi, Central African Republic, Angola, Uganda, South Sudan, South Africa, Tanzania, and the Republic of Congo signed the accord. Congo's neighbors collectively promised to not interfere in the internal affairs ...

Ever since he became the head of state of the Republic, he has never attended United Nations (UN) General Assembly. He has never addressed African Union summit. In 2009, he boycotted SADC summit. He is quoted by South African Business Day newspaper, saying that attending UN summit is a waste on money, considering the number of his delegates. He says going there and speak for seven minutes is totally waste of his critical time. But he sees it fit to attend conservation conferences in USA and Brazil, not considering the expenses. He is quick to attack his fellows, particularly Robert Mugabe,deceased Muammar Gadaffhi, Laurent Ghagbo, Ben Ali, Hosni Mubarak, Assad ad infinitum. But he cannot castigate them face to face at UN General Assembly. Political scientists has said he lacks diplomatic skill and that is why he shuns presidential debates and even parliamentary debates. He has his priorities at heart at the expense of ordinary Batswana. What is more important, UN General Assembly or CONSERVATION CONFEREN ...
World News Sudan criticized for Abyei maneuvers JUBA, South Sudan, Feb. 11 (UPI) -- A South Sudan official says Sudan is increasing its troops in the contested Abyei area and moving many Arab nomads there to sabotage an upcoming referendum. Luka Biong Deng, co-chairman of the Abyei Joint Oversight Committee, said the creation by Sudan of a humanitarian commission was done only to more easily settle members of the Misseriya tribe in the area, the Sudan Tribune reported Sunday. Deng said the unilateral creation of the commission violates a June 2011 agreement that specifies an interagency task force. Deng said United Nations peacekeeping forces in Abyei should report Sudan was in "clear violation" of the agreement by sending more troops into the region instead withdrawing them as required. "The people of Abyei have suffered a lot," he said. "It is time for the international community to give them [the] support they deserve." South Sudan's president, Salva Kiir, has accepted an African Union proposal to hold ...
BELGIUM At Brussels Conference, UN Stresses Need for Dual-Track Approach to Stabilize Mali Brussels (UN) - Both military and political efforts are vital if Mali’s partners are to help the country emerge from its ongoing crisis, the United Nations political chief stressed today at a conference held in Brussels to discuss the latest situation in the West African nation. “Ultimately, the success of our support to the Malian people will depend on the effective combination of our political and security efforts,” Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs, Jeffrey Feltman, told the meeting, which also included the participation of regional bodies such as the African Union (AU) and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS). Northern Mali has been occupied by radical Islamists after fighting broke out in January 2012 between Government forces and Tuareg rebels. The conflict uprooted thousands of people and prompted the Malian Government to request assistance from France to stop the military ...
NIGERIAN TERRORIST CAPTURED IN NORTHERN MALI Malian forces have arrested eight suspected al-Qaeda-linked fighters in northern Mali. Their capture comes as French fighter jets targeted rebel hideouts and fuel depots in the northeastern desert on Tuesday, near the Algerian border. The eight suspects captured in Gao are expected to be transferred to Bamako where they will eventually stand trial. They include six Malians, a NIGERIAN and an Algerian man. Meanwhile, delegations from the African Union, United Nations, European Union, West African regional body ECOWAS, banks and aid groups have been meeting in Brussels on Tuesday to discuss the country's future. After a three-week military campaign by French-led forces drove the rebels from most of their strongholds, including the cities of Timbuktu and Gao, dozens of French warplanes on Sunday carried out major air strikes on rebel training and logistics centres in Mali's mountainous northeast, near the Algerian border. "It is about destroying their rear bases, ...
Thank you, Dianne Varga Sent to Kelowna Daily Courier, Kelowna Capital News, Penticton Herald, Merritt Herald, and Vernon Morningstar "Ill-defined exercise in interference" Canada’s one-week commitment to support foreign military intervention in Mali has not even expired and mission creep is setting in. Prime Minister Harper is now considering sending a second plane on this most misbegotten of adventures. Some days ago I read the words of Gerald Caplan, who has a Ph.D. in African history, has been a consultant on African Development issues to many United Nations agencies as well as to the African Union, and has written at length on genocide and genocide prevention. He wrote: “Mali ranks 175th of 187 countries on the UN's 2011 Human Development Index, has grown obscenely unequal in the past decade, and its democracy resembled a Potemkin's village. But what Mali does have is gold in the south, much of it being mined by Canadian companies, and the hope of oil in the north . . . . What's happening in Nort ...
GHANA President Mahama in Abidjan to Attend Emergency Summit Accra (GNA) - Ghana's President John Dramani Mahama yesterday arrived in Abidjan, the Ivorian capital to participate in a day’s emergency Economic Community for West African States (ECOWAS) summit to deliberate on rising disturbances in Mali. The summit, which is being hosted by the Ivorian President, Alassane Quattara, who is also the Chairman of ECOWAS, would among other issues deliberate on the need to repel the movement of Malian rebels who have captured Konna, in the Northern sector of the Sahelian country. It would also be attended by other ECOWAS members who would discuss and find immediate solutions to the rising crisis in Mali. In March last year, a group of rebels took up arms to dislocate the Malian government after a coup d’état which led to the death of scores of Malians, necessitating the provision of troops from ECOWAS, the African Union and the United Nations. Currently, the country needs over 3,000 troops to be able to main ...

Potential investments in Barotseland - By Godwin M Kaluwe Barotseland is in the process of becoming an independent state. Efforts are being made diplomatically,­ politically and legally to actualize statehood, in order to make a legitimate claim for international recognition through the United Nations, African Union, SADC, Common Wealth and other bodies. Let the whole world know that there is a lot of potential for investments in Barotseland. This part of Africa has been very peaceful for decades. Barotseland became part of the British Empire through peaceful negotiations a century ago, and part of Zambia in 1964 in the same way. In like manner, Barotseland would like to leave Zambia without bloodshed. We desire for this region to continue to be a peaceful sanctuary that it has been for a century. This was King Lewanika's vision and wish. Let the international community and the business fraternities know that they are welcome to partner with Barotseland and help with development and also benefit from wha ...
The world is fast turning into a global village and the need to ensure that the world is peaceful and conducive cannot be overemphasized. Striving for peace, promoting development and seeking cooperation have become irresistible historic trends. The international community is striving to build a harmonious society featuring sustainable peace and common prosperity. Peace, cooperation and development constitute the trends of our times, and push human beings to develop and progress at an unprecedented speed. The responsibility of ensuring that the world is peaceful and harmonious to live in does not rest in the governments only, corporate bodies and individuals all have a role to play. Despite the geographical and ethnic differences that exist in the nations of the world today, nations have set aside these differences and have at different times under the umbrella of different organizations like the United Nations, European Union, African Union etc come together to discuss how lasting peace can be ensured in ...

Addis Ababa: The African Union and United Nations held top level consultations on the Mali situation today - next steps - a visit to Mali
CHAMA TAWALA KINAPOMGEUKA RAIS WA NCHI: The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) which is the ruling party in Malawi has attacked Joyce Banda’s administration, seven months after being in power, arguing it has failed to run the country properly. On the dispute with Tanzania on the border DPP said that it was surprised that President Banda has taken the boarder wrangle issue to the United Nations surpassing several continental and regional bodies such as the African Union, SADC and COMESA. “Additionally, the DPP joins the Malawi Law Society in condemning the government’s decision, coming at a time when the country is experiencing extreme economic hardships, to hire expensive lawyers from the United Kingdom just to draft a paper to be presented to Tanzania for negotiations when we have so many learned Malawians. “The DPP believes that African challenges are best solved by Africans. The DPP proposes that a high powered team be formed to negotiate with our Brothers from Tanzania”

A high-level international meeting involving the African Union, European Union, Ecowas, the United Nations and so on gets underway in Bamako, Mali to discuss the crisis of the landlock country that has been plunged into political mayhem since coup led by Capt Sanogo. Well lets wait and see if they will arrive at any consensus vis-a-vis military intervention to retaken the north held part of the country. Its important for a consensus on military intervention since the so-called islamists separatists have had enough luxury of commiting crimes purnishable under international law. Their activities have become unacceptable and they are not even going by the dictates of a true Islamic sharia. But again what is happening is the legacy of a greedy Captain Amadou Sanogo, who shamelessly said "we are going to do in 10 days what the government failed to do in 10 years in tackling the insurgency in the north" after overthrwoing President Amadou Toumani Touray just 45 days away from the elections. His vision has sinc ...
We recognise that there are existing and emerging threats and challenges that continue to frustrate our individual and collective efforts to attain greater economic development and social progress, as well as peace and security. But the increasing trend by the NATO States inspired by the arrogant belief that they are the most powerful among us, which has demonstrated itself through their recent resort to unilateralism and military hegemony in Libya, is the very antithesis of the basic principles of the United Nations. In that case of Libya, the African Union and its peace-making role was defied, ignored and humiliated. May we urge the international community to collectively nip this dangerous and unwelcome aggressive development before it festers. In this regard, Mr President, the theme you have chosen for this session, namely “Bringing about Adjustment or Settlement of International Disputes or Situations by Peaceful Means,” is very appropriate. The warmongers of our world have done us enough harm. W ...

China's New Dictatorship Diplomacy China is often accused of supporting a string of despots, nuclear proliferators, and genocidal regimes, shielding them from international pressure and thus reversing progress on Human Rights and humanitarian principles. But over the last two years, Beijing has been quietly overhauling its policies toward pariah states. It strongly denounced North Korea's nuclear test in October 2006 and took the lead, with the United States, in drafting a sweeping United Nations sanctions resolution against Pyongyang. Over the past year, it has voted to impose and then tighten sanctions on Iran, it has supported the deployment of a United Nations-African Union (UN-AU) force in Darfur, and in Ethiopian politics.
Can everyone STFU about the "New World Order"? There is not some *** secret organization called "New World Order", President H. W. Bush was speaking in a theoretical sense, as in a new order in the world, a new system, a step up from the last one, the United Nations, Ron Paul technically wants a New World Order, one of liberty. Are there "groups" that want more control in the world? Yes. Bilderberg, the Catholic Church, Israel, the Arab League, BRIC, NATO, the UK, the EU, the US, and even the African Union. Do some use false flags? Yes, just look at the USS Liberty incident. But there is no secret organization controlling the world, there is no Illuminati, no shapeshifting reptilians (though I guess the Jesuit College is close to that), and no freaking Intergalactic Alliance led by the "greys" (at least not on Earth), so can we come back to it?

Sudan rejects deal proposed by South Sudan Sudan on Monday turned down South Sudan's proposal of a higher oil transit fee and an $8.2 billion financial deal, ruling out any comprehensive settlement of outstanding issues by the August 2 deadline. The offer and its refusal come just days ahead of an African Union- and United Nations-imposed deadline calling on Both Sides to reach agreements on issues including oil transit fees, border demarcation and security by August 2. Pagan Amum, South Sudan's chief negotiator, told reporters Juba was ready to resume oil exports, stalled in January, if "reasonable" transport fees are agreed on. He outlined a proposal whereby Juba would pay up to $9.10 a barrel to transit its oil through Sudan. Khartoum had earlier demanded as much as $36 per barrel, which includes tariffs and transit, processing and port fees. South Sudan said that "in the interest of peace" it was offering Sudan a financial package, worth $8.2 billion over three years, which includes a cash payment and ...

What lessons for Africa? After 500 years of a profoundly unequal relationship with the West, it is clear that we don’t have the same criteria of what is good and bad. We have deeply divergent interests. How can one not deplore the “yes” votes from three sub-Saharan countries – Nigeria, South Africa and Gabon – for Resolution 1973 that inaugurated the latest form of colonization baptized “the protection of people,” which legitimizes the racist theories that have informed Europeans since the 18th century and according to which North Africa has nothing to do with sub-Saharan Africa, that North Africa is more evolved, cultivated and civilized than the rest of Africa? The U.S.-France-Britain-NATO assault on Libya has caused widespread death and deprivation.

As Mali is increasingly compared to Somalia, Afghanistan, African Union seeks UN backing for an intervention
Balancing global interests and steering the African Union in a direction that gives hope to the multitudes of the poor, the sick, the hungry and the marginalized, is indeed a mammoth task. Its time for Africans to support an open, transparent and all-inclusive multilateral approach in dealing with these global challenges. Africa should push the United Nations to recognize the equality of sovereign nations and peoples whether big or small. We are averse to a body in which the economically and militarily powerful behave like bullies, trampling on the rights of weak and smaller states as sadly happened in Libya, Iraq and soon Iran. In the light of these inauspicious developments, this Organisation must surely examine the essence of its authority and the extent of its power when challenged in this manner. Once again African (AU) must reiterate its position that the Security Council of the United Nations (UN) as presently constituted is not democratic. In its present configuration, the Council has shown that i ...
Somalia is entering its "most critical stage" as the end of its transitional governing period approaches in August, a United Nations envoy said today, calling for the international community to boost their efforts to help the East African country through its peace and national reconciliation process. "As Somalia faces the greatest opportunity to end the transition, after so much investment by the international community and well-wishing Somalis, we must complete the tasks at hand," the Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Somalia, Augustine P. Mahiga, told the Security Council in New York. "We must provide timely logistical and financial support to enable us to complete the implementation of the roadmap before August this year, as well as strengthen international cooperation and coordination." The country's Transitional Federal Institutions (TFIs) are in the process of implementing a roadmap, devised in September last year, that spells out priority measures to be carried out before the curr ...
Where is the unity in United Nations?. Where is the strength of the African Union like the European Union?. What has been the influence of the World Bank and IMF on Africa?. Where is the Central Bank of Africa?. Where is the 1 Africa currency like the Euro, Pound and Dollar?.

The Somali flag is plain, a sea of light blue with a white, five-point star in the centre. The blue honours the United Nations which was instrumental in Somalia’s independence and the white represents peace and prosperity. The points of the star symbolise the five major Somali ethnic regions that were divided by the colonial powers before independence in 1960. But, the Somali star has been falling since the 1991 overthrow of President Mohamed Siad Barre ignited a heartless civil war. The country’s infrastructure has been totally shattered, and no official government was created to rebuild what the war destroyed until the recent inauguration of the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) of Sheik Sharif Ahmed with the support of the African Union Mission in Somalia (Amisom).Severe droughts and years of war have killed nearly a million residents and at least 2,5 million are refugees in their country of birth or are internally displaced persons (IDPs).Over 4 000 Somali refugees are trying to rebuild their ...
The World Health Organization (WHO), the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) are asking the international community for at least US $700 million to help them deal with the humanitarian crisis in the Sahel. Due to the urg...
I welcome the United Nations-backed court decision to convict former Liberian President Charles Taylor for aiding and abetting war crimes and crimes against humanity in Serra Leon. I believe justice is served in favor of the people of Serra Leon. While I welcome the court’s decision on Serra Leon, the abiding mystery for me is why hasn’t Charles Taylor been tried for what he did in Liberia whereas there are mountains of evidences available. Why haven’t the Liberian people receive justice up to now? What’s wrong with the Liberia case, and who is behind all of this? Today, Liberia is infested with war crimes suspects. These are those holding top positions in government including the Presidency. It looks like the whole World is not in any hast to talk about crimes committed in Liberia? Why hasn’t the African Union, France, the UK, and the US, mentioned anything about justice for the Liberian people? What is the civilized World's position on crimes committed in Liberia? Why is the Free World of Ju ...
'If you want to tast a man's character give him power' no doubt that we(South Sudanese) granted 'power' to commrade Salva seven years ago since the un-timely death of Dr. John Garang. hoping that kiir will follow the foot steps, he fail to deliver what was expected from him.I may sound naive to ask; what was the reason why commrade Kiir order S.P.L.A soldiers to withdraw from panthou? Does president Kiir knows that Ban Ki Moon is the weakest S.G in the history of United Nations? Does (He) knows that the current African Union has been politicized? What if Bashir claims Juba and International community ask you to withdraw! Will you move to Torit?.I came to realised that S.P.L.A is one of the stronger army in the region despite the injustices and inequalities committed by your Government, they need a good leader not you .
United Nations, African Union, Arab League and all international bodies should stop Sudan not to continue to blindfold all of us.
