Leadership: Critical African Politics


Zulu, Itibari M., The Journal of Pan African Studies (Online)


Welcome to another edition of The Journal of Pan African Studies (JPAS). This issue, like many of our past issues, engages the African world in a trans-disciplinary fashion. We begin with sincere thanks for the life and afterlife of our recent ancestors, my fellow librarian-scholar Donna Marcia Wells (1953-2009); scholar, activist and educator Imari Abubakar Obadele (1930-2010); community organizer Tommy Jacquette-Halifu (1943-2009) and distinguished scholar Ralston Milton "Rex" Nettleford (1933-2010). I had the pleasure of meeting all but one of these fine people, and I am sure they will be welcomed in the afterlife.

Next we journey into the four cornerstones of African centered leadership-followership devised in 2000 at the Kwame Ture Leadership Institute.

Our next article attempts to deconstruct a myriad of negative images that denigrate Africa and works to invalidate stereotypes that have been pervasively consecrated as historical truths in literature, philosophy, religion, and politics.

Continuing, a host of authors re-examine current paradigms and concepts about rural development, environmental sustainability and poverty alleviation in Africa. In addition, the dynamics of political affairs are articulated by President Barack Obama, His Excellency Professor John Evans Atta Mills, and His Excellency Mr. Jacob Gedleyihlekisa Zuma.

Taguem Fah emerges us in a discussion of Africom which derives from the assumption that US African Command is a continuation of American militarization in Africa and it is negatively changing the local culture of violence. In addition, Sabelo J. Ndlovu-Gatsheni and Victor Ojakorotu examine the security terrain within which Africom was established and reasons why there was a push for it to be established in Africa. In juxtaposition, Okori Uneke writes that corruption, particularly in countries where it has become an integral part of the social fabric, is a major handicap to sustainable development in Africa. JPAS editorial member Nana Adu-Pipim Boaduo FRC contends that from 1990 to 1993 South Africa ushered in a new philosophical and political ideology of reconciliation which climaxed in 1994, and thus, this political change requires a new education to humanize all South Africans. …
