Gaddafi: A Reader's Response

A REJOINDER
 By Johnston Sr
Hakeem's succinct and impartial analysis of Gaddafi's modesty and plight for the Libyans in particular and the African people and people of African heritage as a whole goes on to show how journalism can be coded with the beauty of truism which the western media have vehemently refused to acknowledge..

I'm really impressed that you as a young African journalist can come up boldly with this sort of write-up. However, referring to your analogy of “a woman who can only be ascertained that her husband is good by trying another man”, we have to be cautious with this wind of change which is becoming a virus on the African and the Arab regions, especially as we are made to believe by the so-called western governments that it would be for the good of the people.

While it is prudent to acknowledge the benefits that this viral situation would bring, I'm a bit skeptical and call on the masses not to be led to believe that changing a Brother-Leader like Gaddafi is the sole panacea to their problems. As you rightly said it is a choice of "a benevolent dictator or a malevolent democrat".


A fellow university classmate (History and Political Science) told me days ago that "While African and Arab leaders have to listen and react to the voices of their people, there is an enormous trepidation that by the time leaders like Gaddafi, Mugabe (just for his boldness and criticism of the western double standards and continuous imperialism) and... are eliminated, Africa would be void of any bold, courageous and critical figure to remind our American and our Western colonial exploiters of their limits and trespasses.

The above point of view of my learned friend coaxed me to believe the cliché of this state of affairs, as we see a situation in Africa and the Arab regions where African and Arabic western-trained politicians are taking up leadership position and since as saying goes "you can't bite the finger that feeds or fed you” is a norm, these regions (African and the Arab) would only have to play the second fiddle to these western governments if they wish to wield power calmly and for long time.


Hakeem! The above role of being stooges to the Western Protégé would be good if these western educated African and Arab replacements could emulate the examples that you and I are seeing in the “Whiteman’s world”, such as the unconditional provision of basic amenities like "Modern" Hospitals, Educational institutions, Social and Welfare facilities, good transportation network and a political environment void of reprisals among others.


And not EXPORTING the wealth of these regions (Billions of Dollars) that belongs to their impoverished countries to Switzerland and other Western banks in the form of assets etc, which are all supervised and managed by our So-called helpers (Western governments and institutions) to develop their countries, while the regions languish in agonies. Mindful of the bizarre situation in Libya now, especially the continuous death of the Libyan people, and the destruction of the country by demonstrators, the disgusting mistake that western governments and the United Nations (which off course is seen as a stooge of the US), have made is the rushing of sanctions against Gaddafi and his government.

One may have anticipated that the various governments, western institutions and the UN would call on the Libyans to restrain calm, while lobbying and giving Gaddafi a time frame to invite the different segments of the country to discuss possible reforms for a smooth transition after the exit of their once respected Brother-Leade

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
