Acting for Africans

Posted on July 24, 2009 at 6:00am 0 Comments

When the Late Babu and myself nominated Taj I was not familiar with the Borderland issue. Babu would have been sice he was a Zanzibari. What I realised was that Taj did not have much reading background on Pan-Africanism. He had much enthusiasm.

He chose to go the way of the poltical leaders of state Pan-Africanism such as Salim, who was head of the OAU and Butros Ghali, SG of the UN. Like Salim Taj took an Arab wife. That was the option he chose. You'd remember that Nkrumah had done the…

He states that one of the major problems confronting African policy makers is their low level of appreciation of the African Diaspora. Many African leaders are not aware of the many possibilities of the African Diaspora. Lack of appreciation goes beyond denial of the Diaspora. Many are…

BF BANKIE:



‘ There are sizeable Black African populations in south Libya, northern Chad and south Algeria – but less in the latter. I can hardly see any African-Arab Borderlands in 100-500-1000 years. The African people will be freed and taking a lead, turning the tables on the oppressors’. Garba Diallo –Mauritanian



‘Chad is a Black nation with a minority of Arabs in the northern and eastern parts of the country. Yes, southern Libya and Algeria are Black…
