FAO Quotables

"But being right, even morally right, isn't everything. It is also important to be competent, to be consistent, and to be knowledgeable. It's important for your soldiers and diplomats to speak the language of the people you want to influence. It's important to understand the ethnic and tribal divisions of the place you hope to assist."

Good post on 2012 Elections in Africa

Good post on 2012 Elections in Africa from someone whose blog I follower regularly.  In his post he mentions elections in Zimbabwe, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Ghana, Kenya, Mali and Angola.  His twitter feed is also consistently useful: @goingsubsaharan

  1. Agree with your comments that Going SubSaharan is useful. I emailed him to ask if he'd seen the list on Wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:2012_elections_in_Africa I miss Togo and Madagascar on his list.
