Liberia Candidate George Weah Accuses President Sirleaf of Vote Buying Tags: George Weah Liberia News Ellen Johnson Famous Africans Liberia Sports Sport Footballer Rumors Politics
MONROVIA, Liberia – A candidate in Liberia’s October election is accusing the president of buying votes and using government funds to campaign.

A spokesman for President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf on Friday denied the allegations by soccer star George Weah.
 
Sirleaf’s secretary Cyrus Badio says the allegations are “reckless and unsubstantiated.”
 
President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf is a Harvard-trained economist who became Africa’s first democratically elected female president in 2005.
Weah is running for vice president alongside Winston Tubman, who is among Sirleaf’s 15 challengers.
 
Liberia was ravaged by civil wars for years until 2003. The country is still struggling to maintain a fragile peace with the help of U.N. peacekeepers.

Obama's UN address Attack African Affairs And The Success Of US And NATO's Intervention In Libya Tags: Barack Obama Barack Obama and Africa African News Libya News
(UN, New York) President Barack Obama of the United States addressed the sixty-sixth session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York City on September 24, 2011. Obama voiced up about the new changes in today's World, especially the continent Africa. Cuba's ex-leader Fidel Castro says US President Barack Obama's recent address to the UN was "gibberish" and an attempt to justify the "unjustifiable". Fidel Castro called on the World to charge US and NATO for the crime they committed in Libya 6 months civil war.

Obama's Address To UN Concerning Africa And The Success Of The US And NATO.

Think about it: One year ago, when we met here in New York, the prospect of a successful referendum in South Sudan was in doubt. But the international community overcame old divisions to support the agreement that had been negotiated to give South Sudan self-determination. And last summer, as a new flag went up in Juba, former soldiers laid down their arms, men and women wept with joy, and children finally knew the promise of looking to a future that they will shape. 

One year ago, the people of Côte D’Ivoire approached a landmark election. And when the incumbent lost, and refused to respect the results, the world refused to look the other way. U.N. peacekeepers were harassed, but they did not leave their posts. The Security Council, led by the United States and Nigeria and France, came together to support the will of the people. And Côte D’Ivoire is now governed by the man who was elected to lead.

One year ago, the hopes of the people of Tunisia were suppressed. But they chose the dignity of peaceful protest over the rule of an iron fist. A vendor lit a spark that took his own life, but he ignited a movement. In a face of a crackdown, students spelled out the word, "freedom." The balance of fear shifted from the ruler to those that he ruled. And now the people of Tunisia are preparing for elections that will move them one step closer to the democracy that they deserve.
 
One year ago, Egypt had known one President for nearly 30 years. But for 18 days, the eyes of the world were glued to Tahrir Square, where Egyptians from all walks of life -- men and women, young and old, Muslim and Christian -- demanded their universal rights. We saw in those protesters the moral force of non-violence that has lit the world from Delhi to Warsaw, from Selma to South Africa -- and we knew that change had come to Egypt and to the Arab world.

One year ago, the people of Libya were ruled by the world’s longest-serving dictator. But faced with bullets and bombs and a dictator who threatened to hunt them down like rats, they showed relentless bravery. We will never forget the words of the Libyan who stood up in those early days of the revolution and said, “Our words are free now.” It’s a feeling you can’t explain. Day after day, in the face of bullets and bombs, the Libyan people refused to give back that freedom. And when they were threatened by the kind of mass atrocity that often went unchallenged in the last century, the United Nations lived up to its charter. The Security Council authorized all necessary measures to prevent a massacre. The Arab League called for this effort; Arab nations joined a NATO-led coalition that halted Qaddafi’s forces in their tracks.

In the months that followed, the will of the coalition proved unbreakable, and the will of the Libyan people could not be denied. Forty-two years of tyranny was ended in six months. From Tripoli to Misurata to Benghazi -- today, Libya is free. Yesterday, the leaders of a new Libya took their rightful place beside us, and this week, the United States is reopening our embassy in Tripoli.

This is how the international community is supposed to work -- nations standing together for the sake of peace and security, and individuals claiming their rights. Now, all of us have a responsibility to support the new Libya -- the new Libyan government as they confront the challenge of turning this moment of promise into a just and lasting peace for all Libyans.
 
So this has been a remarkable year. The Qaddafi regime is over. Gbagbo, Ben Ali, Mubarak are no longer in power.

Didier Drogba seeks to bring peace to Ivory Coast Tags: Didier Drogba African Sports Ivory Coast Sports Ivory Coast News Famous Africans Footballers
Mr Drogba, who represents Ivory Coast's diaspora on the 11-member commission, said every Ivorian has been affected by the conflict - and he had also lost friends and relatives.
 
"I hope that in a few years' time people from north from south - from all the different places - they will be able to sit together and say sorry," he said.
 
"You've got to make people understand that this country is better when there's peace, this country is better when we forgive.
 
"I want to go back and I want my kids as well to go back and live in Ivory Coast."
 
Mr Drogba said it was going to be difficult to manage expectations but his influence in the past had shown how "football can bring people together" - pointing to the 2006 when Ivory Coast qualified for the finals for the first time.
 
Commission chairman former Prime Minister Charles Konan Banny met Mr Drogba on Tuesday in London to discuss the arrangements for the commission.
 
"We are 11. Didier Drogba is number 11 in the national team. This time it's not a game," Reuters news agency quotes him as telling journalists.
 
The BBC's John James in Abidjan says Mr Drogba has managed to stay clear of politics in the country even though he comes from the same ethnic group as former President Gbagbo.
 
He is frequently seen on billboards throughout the country and is by the far the country's most recognisable export, our correspondent says.
 
In 2007, Mr Drogba set up his own foundation to fund health and education projects in Africa - and is in the process of building a hospital in Abidjan, the city where he was born.
 
A site has been chosen but construction has yet to begin.
 
Ivory Coast - the world's largest cocoa producer - used to be seen as a haven of peace and prosperity in West Africa.
 
But under the surface, the country has long been deeply divided along ethnic, religious and economic lines.
 
November's poll was intended to fully reunify the country, split in two after a civil war in 2002.
 
Mr Ouattara has said his government will pursue reconciliation, but there will also be justice for victims of the conflict.
 
Mr Gbagbo is under house arrest and has been charged with looting, armed robbery, and embezzlement.

Sudan: Doctors Save Conjoined 'African' Twins Tags: Sudan News African News
PLUCKY twin girls born joined at the head are ready to go home after being separated by surgeons — surviving against odds of 10million to one. Rital and Ritag Gaboura, who turn one on Thursday, were back giggling and playing just days after their operation.
 
The twins, from Sudan, shared arteries and Ritag's tiny heart was pumping most of the blood to her sister's brain.
 
When they were admitted to London's Great Ormond Street Hospital in April Ritag's over-worked heart was already failing.
 
They were split last month after four ops. Only one in 10million survive being joined at the head.
 
Charity Facing The World, which raised cash for the twins to come to Britain, said: "Their laughter and delight has been an inspiration."
