The year 2013 marked the 50th anniversary of pan-African solidarity with the founding of the Organisation of African Unity in May 1963. The golden jubilee has been a fitting moment for institutional reflection for the African Union (AU), the 2002 OAU successor. While the OAU was founded on the ideology of the struggle for liberation, thereby limiting its role in governance, the AU was founded with a stronger governance mandate and better institutions. More important, the Constitutive Act of 2000 provides it with a better framework to intervene in African conflicts.

Have you used the new multi-level parking lot being built at Maerua Mall? They have P1 and P2 open for business (P3 is coming!) and it’s a disaster waiting to happen. In my view, the geniuses doing the design and building clearly did not correctly consider the end use of a shopping mall parking garage when they made their sizing/proportion decisions.
