WAJIBU is quarterly journal founded in Nairobi in 1985, it is intended for everyone who is concerned about keeping the African traditions alive and adapting them to the modern way of life. About us
NEWSfromAFRICA was started on 15 April 1996. It was the first electronicnews bulletin in Africa. called AFRICANEWS. In October 2003, since many others were using Africanews as a title for their homepage or bullettin, it was decided to change it to NEWSfromAFRICA. This title reflects better the fact that the sources of the news and the publication are in Africa. NEWSfromAFRICA, like its predecessor AFRICANEWS, is published regularly on the 15th of every month. It is the initiative of Koinonia Community, a lay Christian organisation registered in Nairobi (Kenya). NEWSfromAFRICA focuses its attention on: fostering justice, peace making and peace keeping, reconciliation, emancipation of women, ecology, modernity and tradition, poverty and development, through the use of New Information Communication Technologies(ICTs) In particular, NEWSfromAFRICA makes its own preferential option for the poor. All news and their analyses are given from the perspective of the African grassroots people, their struggle for freedom, dignity and justice.

Traditional Decision-Making And Current Forms Of Governance
“Asking yes-or-no questions is very unAfrican.”
Introduction It is generally acknowledged that European ideas were extensively imposed in Africa during the colonial period, and many of these ideas are now assumed to be the more effective, not least in the fields of human rights, legal systems, and democratic forms of governance. On general reflection, however, is it wise to advocate a policy of land ownership to self-sufficient villagers on their shambas let alone to nomads in the parched Rift Valley? Secondly, is it wise to argue for water privatisation in areas so subject to the rains? And finally, on the subject matter of this report, is it wise to suggest the main (or only) decision-making methodology to be used by elected representatives in plenary sessions of parliament or (on a less frequent basis) by the people in any national poll, should be the simple, two-option, majority vote? This, after all, is the procedure used in nearly every national parliament in the world. Furthermore, with some variations on the theme, it is used in such international fora as the United Nations, the European Union, and even in such post-conflict agreements like the Belfast Agreement and the Dayton Accords

Average review score: Well, fun but average CD I first heard this track At Orlando in a party. La Bomba is the best track of this CD, the others are rather average. Nevertheless, it is good for party. It's worth buying for this ! King Africa- La Bomba Hello!
I love this song! And this band! My only wish is to get their music vidio! I really love to see the La Bomba music vidio! But I can't find it anywhere! Unique and Impressive I heard "Bomba" in Mexico over Christmas last year and then again when I returned in April this year. The song itself has a penetrating dance beat, contagious to those who don't even dance (like myself). I heard it everywhere I went: clubs, cars, streets and bars. It's staying quality might be noted by an experience I had at a "Gigante" supermarket in Veracruz, where the song was played continuously for at least 30 minutes. I couldn't go more than 20 feet without seeing another person dancing (even if subtly). The rest of the CD is equally as infecting. If you're considering the purchase, do it. It's worth the money.

The stories in the rocks Kenya Astonishing fossil finds in Kenya's Rift valley are challenging long-held views about humankind's earliest ancestors , writes Binyavanga Wainaina Even I, born and brought up in the Rift valley, sometimes take this fantastic location for granted. But today is different. Occasionally something happens to shake me into awareness of this place. Imagine a forest, with trees 50m tall, with hot springs, and lakes and rivers. Imagine strange mammals : pigs as large as hippos, elephants with four tusks. A small chimpanzee-sized hominid swings among the trees, then settles on the ground. It stands, and walks like a human . This hominid is called Orrorin tugenensis, and is possibly our oldest known ancestor. "Orrorin" means "original man" in Tugen, and the specific name "tugenensis" refers to the Tugen Hills where the material was discovered.

A Success Story In Desertification Control
By Alex Mugova and Jealinda Mavunga
The authors, Socio-economics and Natural Resources Experts, respectively were hired by UNEP to evaluate the success of the Project.
T he Wei Wei Integrated Development Project (WWIDP) was started in 1987 following the signing of a development co-operation agreement between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Government of Kenya (GoK) and the Italian Development Co-operation. According to the project design, the planned key outputs of the project were as follows: · Construction of intake weir on the Wei Wei river with a maximum intake flow of 1.2 cubic meters per second; · Laying of an underground steel and PVC pipeline network that would distribute water through gravity fed sprinkler irrigation units on each plot; Land reclamation and improvement over 700ha;

A special word of thanks to Sr Therese Nwosu, Sr Celine Gallagher and the members of the Holy Rosary Congregation for their kind help.
The First Twenty-Five Years
For 60 years Killeshandra has been home to one of the world's greatest missionary endeavors. For 60 years young women left Killeshandra to bring education, health care and, most important of all, the Christian message to the African peoples. Through their courage, their total commitment, their dedication, they have made an enormous contribution to the development of many third world countries. The full extent of this contribution may never be fully appreciated or recognized. For these brave women, their journey began in Killeshandra. They were members of the Missionary Sisters of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary, and their convent, the mother house of the order, was situated a few miles outside of the town. At its peak the order was the largest missionary congregation for women in Ireland. Throughout the length and breadth of Ireland the sisters were simply and affectionately known as the ' Killeshandra nuns '. To tell their story is to tell the story of some of the bravest and most dedicated women ever to leave these shores.

organize the first African Indigenous Women's Conference April 20-24, 1998, Agadir, Morocco Programme INTRODUCTION Increasingly many indigenous women are leading the movements to defend their communities and are fighting to protect their people. The success of this social movement, and the interest in the subject of human rights at the international level was clearly expressed in the world conferences held recently: The second International Indigeneous Women's Conference, Karasjohka (Norway) 1990; the World Conference on Human Rights, Vienna (Austria) 1993; the Social Summit, Copenhagen (Denmark) 1995; the fourth Women's World Conference, Beijing (China) 1995; The First International Indigenous Women's Conference, Adelaide (Australia) 1988. When the thirtheen United Nation's working group on the indigenous population was held in Geneva in 1995, only three of the thirty African delegates present were women. The absence of the African indigenous women in these international meetings shows that they lack the apportunities to express their points of view and their interests at the international level. The indegineous people in the entire continent find themselves in a situation of marginalisation and isolation. Although this situation is present in any indigenous organization in Africa, the indigenous women meet other obstacles related to their status of woman in the dominant community as well as in the traditional community. The goal of the first African Indigenous Women's Conference is to put an end to this isolation.
