Photo of the day: Post reporter or PF official?

In the Photo, Post newspaper reporter, Roy Habaalu seating in for Wynter Kabimba at the ongoing meeting of political parties in Sudan. Kabimba is leading a delegation of PF officials to the meeting sponsored by Sudan’s president Omar al-Bashir
Representatives of 35 African political parties are meeting in the Sudanese capital Khartoum to establish what they call a joint forum meant to increase unity among the African nations.

But the intention seems to be nothing but the old age rhetoric of bashing the Western World and blaming Europe for Africa’ own created problems. The so called  Council of the African Political Parties looks like another AU meant to rally African support for war criminal like Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir who caused the deaths of millions of people in South Sudan.

“I suggest this meeting will be one of the basic steps to complete the unity of Africa,” Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir said on Saturday during his opening speech to the first conference of the Council of the African Political Parties

Al Bashir insisted on the need for Africa to be keen in selecting its partners, who have to support it to achieve development, especially that it has great potentialities and currently witnessing promotion and development in economic and political aspects besides increase in development, trade rate, and strengthening its institutions.
Al Bashir hinted to the foreign ambitions that target the resources of the continent.
He said that the African continent witnesses new attacks from colonization forces, which sought to create chaos in many countries to rob resources, considering that as one of the biggest challenges facing the African parties. Al Bashir said that the convening of this conference represents a popular integration for the continent parties.

“This meeting wants to unite the African political parties. We want to create a political body for all the parties,” said Nafie Ali Nafie, a Sudanese government official and main organiser of the ,meeting.

“The Council of African Political Parties will be one of the mechanisms which will stand up to the International Criminal Court.”
The council, he stated, will be an assisting body to the African Union (AU), pointing out the advancement in the performance of the AU which, he reiterated, will be supported by the council on the issues of liberation and resolving African problems.

    That hall is probably empty because no sane country has sent representatives to pariah Sudan. And in turn, Wynter Kabwamba has been elected president of a sham Organization set up by I will Bash you a.k.a Al Bashir.

    PF will never learn a lessons on its offessive nature to the opposition. What is Kabimba doing there in Sudan? Try it again and we shall lash you out.

    In my opinion South Africa, and Nelson Mandela in particular, recognised the virtue of racial harmony. Hence the prosperity we see in South Africa. Therefore, this on-going conference of African parties is merely setting a trend of confusion and deceit. Sudan is an Arab country that tortured black Africans, resulting in the birth of South Sudan as mediated by Thabo Mbeki on behalf of the African Unity. Then what are these headless chickens doing in Sudan?

    this photo is Doctored. Look at the reflection on the table just below the picture, its saying Media but the writing is PF. so how does PF reflect as Media on the Table. if you doubt compare the reflection of the box just next to the laptop and the reflection PF on the same table.

          I do not see any reflection of media on the table. The table has the reflection of two letter – PF. Anywhere, since when did media have the front role with their national flags at such conferences? Or maybe the chap was only pausing before Kabimba came in!!

      Roy you are a disgrace, you have embarrassed the media profession in the country, and Post please dont hide just openly come out clean and say you are a PF mouth piece so that we don’t judge you harshly because by then we will have known what you stand for. Sad Habaalu but in a country where there are morals you needed top stand aside.

    So, is he PF cadre or Post reporter? Answer: Both, and the consequesnces are poor coverage of opposition parties, biasness, subjectivity in reporting, lies and stupidity coupled with idiocity. If it was a mathematical statement it would be PF = the POST.

    Birds of the same feather. this council will not go anywhere. We just have to be realistic. The ruling party in this country will not change because of its leadership policies[or lack of them]. One would have thought that with the muzungu in PF, things would straighten out, but this has not happened. The muzungu is not adding any value to good governance. What is it with sata and despotic regimes? What are they learning in these meetings? Are they being taught that they shoud not develop parts of their countries where the ruling party has no mp? Sorry, wrong timing. Try another era!

    Well said, and in summary, this is a lobby group established to gunner support for criminals.
    It’s only in Africa where icumbents refuse to cede power to the winning candidates.
    It’s only in Africa where war criminals and instigators of violent national conflicts can enjoy regional support, in the name of anti imperialism.

    Africa, our motherland, has a bunch of leaders whose lifestyle can be eqaul or more expensive than their counterparts in developed economies.

    Are opposition parties invited, or suffocation of the opposition parties is also a regional agenda?
