Sierra Leone: Living from Tragedy to Tragedy

Posted by Jeneba Project on Thursday, August 17, 2017 In : Articles 

We live from tragedy to tragedy, surviving on strings of misery, but all I hear are prayers, even when God has nothing to do with our suffering. The same leaders who fail us are the ones who encourage us to pray, so that while we are conjuring angels and casting demons, they can continue to squander our resources. As long as we continue to believe that our tribulations are connected to a divine punishment for waywardness, we will never be able to remove the beam from our eyes in order to see ...

Guardians of Lion Mountains

Guardians of Lion Mountains
©Joseph Kaifala

descendant of ancient tribes
whose stories 
of triumph and tribulation
are told on many shores,
among friends and foes,
thrive in the indefatigable spirit 
of the Kebali of Kasseh.

our bond strengthened
by Masarico’s valiant hands
that sorted us into clans
linked by ethnic arteries
affixed to our matrilineal heritage,
the Mali Empire where
our ancestry lives.

We rise and fall
in humble imitation of our forebears,
walking in the path
of men and women of valor

Africa Rising: Opportunities and Possibilities

Posted by Jeneba Project on Wednesday, December 7, 2016 In : Articles 

Africa is coming to terms with democratic governance and free market economy. The continent possesses significant deposits of natural resources, but it is mostly limited by bad governance and poor financial systems. In spite of these limitations, however, opportunities exist all over the continent for economic growth and development. There has been a decline in the civil wars and political insurrections that marred the continent’s development throughout the eighties and early...

Poor Theresa: How A School Girl Found Herself In A Sierra Leonean Jail

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 ...

Why Aren't You Angry?

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...

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.
