Saudi Arabia and Iran are at loggerheads. They have long been rivals, but it’s all recently got a lot more tense. Here’s why.

Respect your elders: Why cultural norms benefit Mugabe – BBC News

School children hold an image of Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe in April 2017

President Robert Mugabe’s first public appearance after the military takeover in Zimbabwe will have puzzled some.

Here he was at a university graduation ceremony, given the authority to hand students their degrees – almost as if nothing had happened.

It tells us two things.

Firstly, this was political theatre. The suggestion being that behind-the-scenes negotiations over his exit deal are cordial.

But it was also more than spectacle. It showed that President Mugabe’s opponents want to treat the elder statesman with dignity.

Another glance at the Jonestown Tragedy – by Francis Quamina Farrier

Another glance at the Jonestown Tragedy – by Francis Quamina Farrier

Francis Quamina Farrier

“Sure I know ’bout Jonestown. Everybody knows ’bout Jonestown”, the elderly African-American gentleman responded to me in a deep Southern accent, when I asked him what he knew about the tragedy which had occurred in Guyana some years previously.

That exchange took place between the gentleman and myself twenty years ago, while I was on a visit to Washington, DC, and on the pavement in front of the White House. But I’ve always remembered it, if only because of the way in which that stranger to me, was as warm as ever discussing that sordid topic, as though we had known each other for a very long time, and as though it was destiny for a cult which was against all what America stood for, ending in such a dramatic way.      Continue reading

Venezuela – Click to enlarge

Venezuela, the South American country convulsed by economic and humanitarian catastrophe, has defaulted on some of its debt after missing an interest payment due in October. Even as investors meet in Caracas to discuss restructuring US$60 billion in foreign debt, the country is in urgent need of international financial assistance.

Maduro has at times suggested he would not even accept humanitarian aid.     READ MORE
