Happy New Year 2011

There is much for Africa to look forward to this year. Of significance to me are the following 6 issues that are soon to headline and dominate the news.

1. Southern Sudan referendum. In a few short days, Juba will be the capital of a brand new African State.

2. Ivory Coast will witness the swearing in of their new President Alassane Ouattara, as Hon. Gbagbo bows to AU, ECOWAS, EU and US pressure to step aside. Really?

3. Hosni Mubarak may finally step down as Egypt’s President after 30 years in Power.

4. Currently on his 25th year in power, President Yoweri Museveni’s 4th Term should be in the offing. Perhaps inspired by the likes of Mubarak, he will be seeking to have served Ugandans for 30 years.

5. The Kenyan economy soars High in the backdrop of newly implemented Constitution and anti-corruption fight.

6. Ailing Madeeba’s. Our Hero and former S.African President Nelson Mandela’s health sure to be a headlining issue.
