Africa's Moment Keynote Address With Pete Ondeng

"Thank you Mr Odeng. I once felt like that young man, and the sad reality is that, it still happens every day to our African youth. The questions are: what can be done? what is being done and what is not being done the change the situation."

Given the Economic and Political down turn in Zimbabwe, there is a looming question on whether or not African Leaders should Pressure Mugabe out of Power?

There is a heated debate going on in the African Policy Forum by learned Africans and policy experts on whether or not African Leaders should step in and pressure Mugabe out of Power. Can and should they do it is the question.

Join the forum to have your say, or follow up this interesting debate:http://africanpolicy.ning.com/

Dear Eric
Thanks for your message. I registered with APF and am awaiting confirmation.
The debate on Zimbabwe, for that is what it has been for too many years, is bound to be "heated". We spend too much time philosophizing on the situation while the basic tenants of good governance and human rights continue to be trashed by a morally and legally-compromised leadership. Until the people of Zimbabwe commit to continue the struggle for change, beyond the stalemate surrounding the presidential election and the stillborn power-sharing accord earlier this year, there cannot be reasonable and sustainable change in Zimbabwe.
I look forward to learning more, and may be contributing, to the debate at the APF.
Thanks, again, for the introduction.

Hello Eric,

Thanks for the invite. I do think it is a good effort. However, help me understand what the goals of this policy forum are. You are aware that there are numerous policy think tanks both in and out of Africa. What is unique about this particular group? perhaps, you could help me understand better before committing myself and time. Dont get me wrong, I am interested in these endeavors, but I have seen so many of them -- not achieving much and I am weary about signing on to just another policy forum.
Looking forward to your response.

Andoh
