Posted by Jeneba Project on Monday, November 21, 2016 In : Articles 



Sierra Leone has endured an unfair existence since the death of Sir. Milton Margai, the only post-independence Sierra Leonean leader who governed with an unwavering commitment to the rule of law and the welfare of his people. Sir Milton insisted on establishing a post-independence political foundation based on a government of the people, for the people, and in service for the people. Sir Milton died without completing his vision for our new nation and thereafter it survived at ...

Posted by Jeneba Project on Friday, July 8, 2016 In : Articles 

We are all made of hearts, be they in white cages or black ones, we feel. When senseless killings happen among people at war, we blame it on the conflict, but America is at peace.  In this country, the police, sentinels of our democratic peace, are more afraid of death than the people they swear to protect. When confronted by black folks, their nerves are excited by preconceived notions of blackness, and they become trigger happy.  There are those among us who would be quick to...

Dear America: Africa is Watching Your Presidential Race and We Don't Like What We See

Posted by Jeneba Project on Monday, March 21, 2016 In : Articles 



The U.S. Presidential Election matters to Africa because, whether we like it or not, when America sneezes the continent catches a cold.  America loves to sneeze on the theater of global politics, which is why Africa prays it doesn’t allow itself to acquire a communicable disease.  When young African democracies seek political inspiration, they look to America not because they condone everything this nation does, but because on a good day, America inspires the world with truth...

It is as my brother Alpha Blondy has said, La démocratie bananière pour les républiques bananières, banana democracy for banana republics. When a president refuses to sign a bill unanimously passed by parliament and returns it with a recommendation for a referendum, one can only imagine what our government’s understanding of Montesquian democracy would be. Perhaps in the future a minimum amount of civic education should be required of individuals aspiring ...

Woman of Africa

Woman of Africa
---------
Joseph Kaifala


African woman
Woman of the north
Woman of the south
Woman of the east and west
Woman of the Makona river
How beautiful you are

I look at you without blinking
Your black braided hair
A beauty I cannot resist
Like an alignment of the stars
Your smooth dark skin
Complements your fierce white eyes

I could stare at you forever
As you do your majestic walk
Feet and hips in rhythm
To the beat of your internal djembe
With the attitude of a goddess
You flirt wit...

About


KATEHUN KATEHUN (pronounced Ka-te-hun)-is a Mende word for a symposium or community center where disputes are settled. Everyone is permitted to make his/her case before a presiding chief in an open forum. On this forum, I write primarily for those who stand committed to the Rule of Law in Africa and to the value that our future is better determined by the government of the people, by the people, and in service for the people. To advance the African value of Ubuntu through International Law and the Principles of a United Nations, which propels us towards Life in Larger Freedom.
