As a senior Envagelist and active minister of the anglican Church, I have begun to accept the suggestions of the African Muslim website www.esinislam.com that the Africans feel they could relate to Islam because it does not support the oppressors. I had just come out of this so-called pan-African onesided site angry and depressed only to reach your site from a BBC link and get even worse enraged and disturbed.
To say your comment about Mbeki's silent policies as an encouragemnt for Mugabe is depressing is an understatement. Though, I found your article extremely informative and rich in its styles, your indirect attacks on other African leaders is as disturbing as for me as a pastor to turn to those African Muslims at www.esinislam.com, especially their Sheikh the West African academic Sheikh Adelabu for a baptism. It's wrecking! The Zimbabwean deserve respect of all commentators for the one they had chosen to be their leader. It's Mugabe - whatever his enemies say about him - an elected president. Period!
Peace and Tranquility???
