Giving Security a Human Face: the Protection of State Info Bill of RSA

South Africa's National Council of Provinces, the second chamber of Parliament, started considering the Protection of State Information Bill B6B 2010. This Bill seeks to replace the apartheid law which protects information but is inconsistent with the Constitution of the Republic and the national security doctrine, which makes people the focal point of security.Secondly, the bill seeks to provide protection for valuable information, which includes protecting birth certificates that are a…See More

What a read about Rwanda and President Paul Kagame and the Great Lakes Region

Posted on October 8, 2008 at 10:28am 0 Comments

Rwanda has been in the news of late following the political exchanges by the Foreign Minister of Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Those familiar with developments there may not be interested in getting background knowledge because they are already in the know. Those who are in darkness would greatly appreciate the book by Stephen Kinzer entitled: A Thousand Hills...

This book by Stephen Kinzer, author of the national bestseller All the Shah's Men, is a timely written must… Continue

Intelligence in a Constitutional Democracy: A Practitioner's Perspective

Posted on October 3, 2008 at 5:29am 0 Comments


The Report presented by the Mathews Commission entitled Intelligence in a Constitutional Democracy is a well written and clearly thought out work. Like anything human though, it has its short comings. Before dwelling on these, it is important to appreciate its strengths and innovations in improving the oversight of intelligence. The first remarkable aspect is its call for the revisiting of the White Paper on Intelligence. I would add that with that process must be the… Continue

Security Sector Reform Discussion Network

Posted on August 19, 2008 at 8:28am 0 Comments

Security Sector Reform is a relatively new field which has been growing following a realisation that security and development are two sides of the same coin. In this regard, it has been accepted that there can be no sustained development, peace and democracy without security.

To share ideas, critique each other's papers and to collaborate, generally in this field, a discussion network on Security Sector Reform is being established. Those with an interest in the field are welcomed to… Continue

I must say with all honesty that I truly appreciate the wonderful work you and CISSA are doing for our mother land-Africa.

I am fine thanks. I have been focusing on what seems to be the undoing of the Zimbabwe Agreement, the deteriorating situation in Eastern DRC, the intensifying crisis in Somalia with the ARS especially its Al-Shebab wing advancing slowly but with immense determination. It is clear that soon we will be seeing an even greater tragedy in Somalia especially in light of the intensifying and more daring hijackings of ships as part of the piracy in that part of the continent. Zambia is also of concern as rumblings from the opposition are suggesting that they may be seeking a Kenya option. As things stands Africa is facing many peace and security challenges. But it is not all doom and gloom. As I watch through my window, I am seeing trucks faring soil dug from the road. There are new roads being built in Addis Ababa. There is a new AU Headquarters under construction and things are moving forward. It is good to see that monies set aside for these infrastructure programmes are indeed being spent on them. I saw similar big road programmes in Ghana, Angola, Malawi, Nigeria, Congo just to mention a few examples. I saw a big project of renovating Khartoum and is moving on remarkably. So, there is a new spirit in Africa although the legacy of war remains a source for concern. We must not forget what Nelson Mandela taught us when evaluating Africa's position: One breaking tree makes the most noise compared to many that are growing.

I guess I am fine.

Hey. I guess you are doing great!

Hi Dennis,

I am glad for such encouraging comments. It was indeed a dark chapter in the history of our countries and I think with people out there to embrace peace and willing to forgive, that is whats going to make all the difference! Cheers

Thanks for the comments they have been quite useful. I am sorry for the late response it is owing to work commitments. I have just seen another statement issued at the General Assembly of the United Nations about the situation in Cote dIvoire repeating claims that the electoral process has reached a decisive stage of irreversibility. This continues to worry me as you have indicated to the contrary. What do you think is likely to happen? What are the prospects for stability and post conflict reconstruction? These and many other questions are my pre-occupation at the moment and we hope that things would turn out to be another African miracle. What can be done to ensure its realisation and success?

I replied to your comments many times but i don't know if you received my note. Sorry about the delay.
I 'll analyse your point about election i Ivory coast my country and the zimbabwean case. I am currently underwriting research paper, we'll discuss.
thanks very much for your availability.

Thank you, I highly appreciate your comment on my page.
In ivory coast i don't share the idea of the elections sheduled in November, because for me ill-timing election could threat for stability and the democratization process. The land is insecure,disarmament is not done yet, the reintegration didn't start.
I Am writing an article to ring the bell of policy makers and the president about the risk of ill-timing polls.
The zimbawean case you talked about i appreciate the agreement between the opposition and the mugabe's government, but actually i don't have a clear Idea about the accord, therefore i could not critically analyse it. I am carrying out research for a publication on Afrimap website.
thanks again for availability to share ideas with me.

Are you still in Addis, I have a friend in Addis her name is Netsanet we met in India last April during the first Indo-africa forum summit.

Thanks for your comment on zimbabwe peace agreement, i didn't receive the document therefore i could not critically analyse it as your are doing. currently i am focussed on my underwriting research papers entitled postconflict elections in africa ,the challenge for democracy.
In Ivory coast, i am writing that we're not ready for elections, precipitated polls could be a risk of violence escalating.ill-timing elections is a threat for democracy and sustaible peacebuilding.

thanks agian for sharing with me, i like it.
