Phil Taylor analyzes the recent news involving two prominent African leaders.

The first was Kenneth Kaunda, the father of the country of Zambia, who passed away this month at the age of 97. Kuanda was a giant of the movement for independence and de-colonization that swept Africa after WW2. He led the liberation struggle in the former British colony of Northern Rhodesia, was its president for many years, developed a working friendship with China to avoid Western sanctions against the Zambian copper industry , and survived assassination. A 21-day period of mourning was declared in Zambia in his honour.

Laurent Gbagbo, former president of Ivory Coast, returned to Ivory Coast this month. He was forcibly removed from office after a closely-contested election in 2010, which the country's Supreme Court ruled he had won. However, Ban Ki Moon, UN Secretary-General, using the much maligned doctrine of Responsibility to Protect (R2P), used Russian and Ukrainian mercenaries, flying helicopters supplied by imperialists, to arrest Gbagbo and render him to the Hague in Holland, where Gbagbo was acquitted after nine years of imprisonment. However, the International Court at the Hague had no intention of returning the innocent man to his homeland.

Gbagbo returned anyway and now is considering re-entering politics. That should be interesting!

Indeed, this whole segment should be interesting to anyone following politics in Africa.
