CAN PAN AFRICAN PARLIAMENTARIANS MAKE PUBLIC THEIR ASSESMENTS

Four members of the Pan African Parliament are in the country for a three day mission to assess the situation. We trust their findings will be true and honest unlike the West who would always want to give a glimpse and negative picture of almost every steps being taken by the Government to improve the economic and development activities. We trust these honorables will go back to their base in South Africa with formed opinion of the actual situation as being dictated for by the on-going National Dialogue among other peace programmes. It is the intention of the Government to ensure all-inclusive enjoyed peace. The only problem has been the orcherstered campaign by some disgruntled elements claiming to represent some interest from foreign countries. Africa as a continent must focus on its priority and spread the truth which would help any of their member or brothers to overcome problems that are human. They should not join the Band-wagon of those countries that are against or opposed to anything about Africa. We should be proud as a continent because this is what our liberators expected of us. Those boot-lickers of the west have sold the continent and its natural wealth. They are singing to the tune of their masters. This is why peace keeps on eluding us and our efforts for positive Nation and Continent building. It is time we stop rumours against one another and start reasoning as one continent with vast interest to one another. This the more reasons we are asking our fellow Pan African parliamentarians to walk the talk and point out to our leaders what they think was wrong and how it could be corrected without adding salt for the outside world consumption. The word Pan may not be understood by many but it comes live when Pan Africanism is mentioned and the founder or advocates like Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana, Mwalimu Julius Nyerere of Tanzania, and Haile Selassie of Ethiopia, Ahmed Sekou Toure Guinea, Thomas Sankara, Burkina Faso and Muammar Gaddafi of Libya. This will enable our guests to know their boundary of trust and truth.

 

Topical Commentary

With Odongo Odoyo

TO DIFFER IN OPINION IS NOT ENEMITY

In our sitting and composition we are above reproach. Nobody get angry or annoyed but differ on or it in opinion but possible resolve immediately for further peaceful interaction. It is healthy in any situation as long as there is no hypocrisy and back-slashing. All should be put on the table and be discussed openly without iota of fear or favour. We met one of our positive critics who think we are doing a wonderful job with this good for nothing son of my mother from another mother, the be-spectacle SaPT. Our friendly critic, Afram Wani Peter while acknowledging the two of us reminded the duo that there were others who were gasping to learn more but shared with us three powerful quotes which we are also sharing with our readers. The first one, “too much freedom kills freedom. Second one, too much democracy kills democracy and ignoring politics is an ignorance by itself”. A good reader can benefit from these quotes of the wise men. The point is, there are those of us who do not want to see beyond their nose like SaPt who lives his life for today as long as he can get food and where to sleep, our friend does not want to think or to know that tomorrow will come. We are godly and we are told cleanliness is next to godliness. Our God like order in life and where there is no order of oneself, the Almighty will not be there for you. Be clean and he will be there for you. Some people are so hyper that you cannot understand them like SaPT. He was wondering how a credible high institution of learning in the region and which had been recognized sometime back the world-over could release so many “fake degrees” to students whose parents and guardians had struggled to see that they were accorded proper papers on completion of their university degrees. Breaking news had it that Makerere, one of the old three universities in the region, had issued 350 fake degrees in different disciplines. In the old days, it was Makerere, Nairobi and Dar-es-Salaam which were the darling and one was proud to have his or her child in one of them. His fear could be real because many South Sudanese students are in different high institution of learning, Makerere included. What would be the next step or option? We live it to God.
