Mandela has departed. Now, Kofi Annan too. Africa is in a dire need of statesmen as more and more of our present heroes join the ancestors.
We need people who are ready to embrace the age-long cause of the African people to be free. Free from captivity and subjugation. Free from economic strangulation. Free to be happy.
I call for a new age of statesmen and stateswomen to arise and take the bull by the horns.
