    visit cameroon By Barbara Bean-Mellinger, 9:12 am

Not to mention the vast amount of animals, plants and bird life. Any way you look at it, it’s unique and unmissable.

  • Opinion: Africa Will Be An Afterthought When New US Government Takes Over In January

    Africa will be an afterthought when new US government takes over By Dana Sanchez, 4:46 pm

    Both the U.S. Democratic and Republican parties adopted official party policy platforms for the upcoming presidential election, but not much was said about Africa. U.S. party platforms are not binding, but special interest groups pore over them and use them to try and influence policies in future governments. Just 174 words of the Democratic platform are devoted to Africa, on the next to last page. The Republican party discussed Africa in 197 words in its party platform. It’s still early to tell if Obama’s legacy, Power Africa, will be an enduring success.

  • Equatorial Guinea, Uganda, Botswana: One Of Them Could Land The Next African Union Chair Post

    next African Union chair By Staff, 5:06 pm

    Botswana has not always supported the African Union on critical issues such as the International Criminal Court, and experts believe it lacks the goodwill needed to support its candidate. South Africa’s A.U. opinions appear closer to Equatorial Guinea’s than Botswana’s on issues such as the politics in Burundi and the ICC’s relations with Africa. The need to give voice within the A.U. to the continent’s historically marginalized regions could push Equatorial Guinea’s candidate to the top. The A.U. faces many challenges including its dependence on foreign aid for its financing.
