While we here in our largely safe American lives protest the "war on women" (as we should), an eerily similar yet silent war has been launched on Dr. Dennis Mukwege and the Panzi Foundation.

Dr. Dennis Mukwege has worked diligently on the frontlines to repair and heal Congolese women who have been brutally raped in midst of brutal genocide in Eastern Congo. Tonight he was the victim of an assassination attempt and his security guard was shot dead.


PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD. THE CONFLICT IN CONGO MUST END.

Sierra Leone has been my home away from home for the last two years. In 2010 we launched our ambitious second Tribewanted project there, on the pristine beaches of John Obey, in the Freetown Peninsula; a village of 500 souls, mainly fishermen and petty traders. We arrived with the goal of promoting the local culture, protecting the environment, and creating an enterprise managed by the local community that could provide long term benefits to John Obey and its residents through eco-tourism. We have had many successes and some setbacks, we have built a sustainable community together with our visiting tribe-members and the local villagers, we have shared incredible experiences and driven each other crazy, just like any family. After two years, our ethos has endured, and we have begun measuring our impact to try to constantly improve our model of sustainability.

The beaches of Sierra Leone, with their bright green tropical forest cliffs overhanging nearby, are some of the most beautiful in West Africa, and provide a great opportunity to the country to invest in eco-tourism, bringing not only sustainable development but promoting a positive image of Sierra Leone to the world.

The United States has been accused of blocking a UN report which examines claims that Rwanda is fuelling a violent rebellion in neighbouring Democratic Republic of the Congo.

The Congolese government said the UN group of experts’ report is being stalled by Rwanda and its allies on the security council to protect President Paul Kagame.

Rwanda vehemently denies that it is sending fighters and weapons across the border. Kagame rebuked Congo and said it should take responsibility.

Claims that Rwanda’s military has been aiding a mutiny in eastern Congo led by the renegade general Bosco Ntaganda have been gathering momentum in recent weeks, with a leaked UN report followed by allegations from Human Rights Watch.

The UN’s group of experts on Congo submitted its latest report to the security council on Monday, but an annex believed to deal with the Rwanda claim was held back and its publication remains uncertain. Lambert Mende, a Congolese government spokesman, blamed Rwanda and its backers, including the US, for the delay. “I think [the report] confirms everything that has been said,” he told Reuters. “I don’t think the Rwandans are at all happy that it should be officially endorsed by the UN.”

Sh!t like this disheartens me… a lot. But, one day, despite how daunting it appears…I still want to strive to help give my fellow Africans equal economic opportunity particularly in agriculture. I think social entrepreneurship may be an answer.
