Obama: From Gaza to Harare: Happy New Year!!!
Happy New Year!! Most people have written a lot about different issues and at the centre of it all remains simple issues that we did not solve in 2008. Darfur is a scar on International consience the same with Somalia and DR Congo. The shame of conflicts in Sri Lanka, Afghanstan, Iraq, Columbia and even Zimbawe still stares and remains with us all as human beings. Gaza decided to be a new way of changing our focus from Obama's day, Tuesday 20th January, 2009.
But today, Malaria, AIDS, TB and even cholera is still a challenge killing thousands of Malawians and Africans.
Today is just a greeting to you all and wish you happy Obama day this Tuesday and appeal to Hamas and the Israel's to give peace a chance. I asked a freind of mine from Jordan why did Hamas terminate the six months ceasefire, Hamza thats the name of my freind gave me enough excuses to fill out two pages.
To me, when you start talking solutions are found. Guns are never a solution. Nothern Ireland is an example Hamas can learn from, so too the jaileng of Nelson Mandela and the fight against Aparthied.
Further the wars in Angola, Zimbabwe, Liberia and Sierra Leone, all ended with both sides talking to each other. Even the Biblical Esau and Jacob made peace after talking.
Thats simple solution to all world problems start talking.
For Zimbabwe keep talking.
Happy New Year to all of us and all our problems!!!
