Comments in the AFrican press on election of Bush

The BBC  has selected some of the comments by African leaders and media in reponse to the US re-election of Bush.    A few sound depressingly like sycophants

"President Bush’s victory is testimony that Americans cherish peace, unity and
freedom." – President Bingu wa Mutharika

We are reassured by your re-election as it will add more vigour to the war
against international terrorism which has assumed a critical dimension at this
period." – President Isaias Afewerki

but fortunately the majority  took a more  crtical and honest postion such as

"Be it Bush or Kerry, neither of them will care about the DR Congo people." –
Le Potentiel

 

A Bush victory is yet another demonstration that the standard of global politics
is very low and only charlatans, liars, duplicitous and cruel politicians need
aspire for success…

It seems fear has won and the nightmare from it will not be limited to the
shores of the US in the next four years." – Uganda’s New Vision
