    i will prolly be a buzz kill around here but obama's policy towards africa has been pathetic so far. he has failed to come up with better plocies. i am not saying he has an obligation to help african countries. NO! but if america wants to engage with africa on several areas then obama needs to rithink his administration's relation with african countries.

    lecturing us about democracy like what he did in ghana is just pathetic. the last thing african want is a lecture on democracy. he is also pouring billions of aid to africa as if it helps. bilateral aid has never helped anybody and will never help africa.

    this dude needs to rethink his policies towards africa. africa needs trade and investments not lectures on democracy or bilateral aid.

    he says he will keep the policies bush had toward africa. obama isnt as smart as i thought he was(note that i didnt say he is not smart)

    Hawa hapa:
    Three Young Leaders Chosen to Represent Tanzania at the White House

    July 28, 2010
    "This is a new moment of great promise. Only this time, we've learned that it will not be giants like Nkrumah and Kenyatta who will determine Africa's future&#8230; It will be the young people brimming with talent and energy and hope who can claim the future that so many in previous generations never realized."
    President Barack Obama - Accra, Ghana, July 2009 ​

    On July 31, three Tanzanian young leaders will depart Dar es Salaam to attend President Barack Obama's Forum with Young African Leaders, to be held in Washington, D.C. from August 3-5, 2010. The three delegates, selected for their leadership potential, are Masoud Mohamed, Chairman of the Zanzibar Youth Network; Malula Nkanyemka, a project development advisor in the Mwanza Region; and Modesta Mahiga, Managing Director of Professional Approach Limited, Inc.

    In 2010, seventeen countries across sub-Saharan Africa celebrate fifty years of independence. In honor of this important historic moment; in acknowledgement of the extraordinarily young demographic profile of the region; and as part of an effort to forge strong, forward-looking partnerships in the years ahead, President Obama will host this forum with approximately 120 young leaders from civil society and the private sector representing more than forty countries in sub-Saharan Africa. Together with American counterparts and U.S. government officials, the participants will share their insights on key themes of youth empowerment, good governance, and economic opportunity. President Obama will host a town hall meeting at the White House with these young leaders to discuss their vision for transforming their societies over the next fifty years.

    The President's Forum with Young African Leaders presents the United States and American friends of Africa with an opportunity to deepen and broaden our understanding of the trajectories of African societies, and to reflect on how the next generation are building their communities' and their nations' futures &#8211; just as their predecessors did in the era of independence from colonial rule. In addition to the town hall meeting with the President, the forum will include small-group discussions on topics such as transparency and accountability, job creation and entrepreneurship, rights advocacy, and the use of technology to empower individuals and communities. African participants will have an opportunity to meet with grassroots service organizations to share experiences and strategies.

    At his meeting with the three delegates Monday, July 26, U.S. Ambassador Alfonso E. Lenhardt described them as "truly proud and exceptional representatives for the United Republic of Tanzania at President Obama's Forum with Young African Leaders." The Ambassador urged them to apply their talents upon their return home to work with other young Tanzanian leaders to develop their nation and create greater opportunities for youth, women, and girls from all sectors of society.

    Ambassador Lenhardt underscored President Obama's words during his speech in Accra last year that "the future of Africa is up to Africans." The U.S. government's role in this gathering is as a convener, encouraging networks between young American and African leaders, and pursuing lasting partnerships on behalf of our common security and prosperity. This dialogue and follow-up events in Africa will help the U.S. government better assess how to support Africa's own aspirations going forward.

    As much as I disliked his policies and contribution to the country as the founding father, we cant deny the role he played in liberating this continent from the white man.. google that dont ask me anything about him. I think mwalimu also did his fair share though I must have skipped class the day our history teacher was talking about him, cause I sincerely dont know anything about Mwalimu except rumours that when he died even wild animals cried (read snakes, monkeys etc... spooky).
