Africa’s new sets of complex challenges dissected at Achebe 2012 Colloquium

In effect, governments like Egypt, Libya and Tunisia, to name a few, are faced with the daunting task of securing a democratic state, foreign to their current political DNA developed from decades of dictatorship. The Central and Eastern regions are undergoing an incredible time of turmoil and instability; to add, South Sudan, as recent as July 9th 2011, celebrated its new national identity and independence from Sudan. West Africa is yet to find an answer to the evolving proliferation and sophistication of terrorism. Africa’s Southern Region still wrestles with matters of race, politics, economic problems, AIDS, housing scarcity and peace building.

Is Sanusi excusing Northern Nigeria’s failings and domination? By Ben Aduba

Sanusi's second point seems that to blame the North for Nigerian failings is futile because the British held down the North while allowing the South a free hand in education. The Northern leaders who led Nigeria such as Babangida were actually guided by southerners. Do not blame the North.

On Africa’s economies and peace, Achebe colloquium calls for good governance, indigenous investments

The Colloquium urges governments in Africa and bold private initiatives to work to grow additional, dedicated indigenous investment and entrepreneurial groups rather than depend largely on foreign aid. To paraphrase one of the keynote speakers, foreign aid is morphine; what is really needed in Africa is a dedicated and thorough operation to remove debilitating poverty that robs the people of their dignity and makes them vulnerable to the manipulation of corrupt, self-serving, and divisive leaders and warlords.

Houston can’t wait for expanded light rail

Light rail holds too significance to the Bayou City of the 21st century to be considered only so casually, disjointedly and often from partisan political prism. What is important here is that the contract brings to active life an expansion of light rail in this city. It is worth celebrating given that organized partisan opposition to light rail has been the Achilles heel of mass transit in Houston.
