Black men are rewarded by the white supremacist, patriarchal culture when they engage in misogynist behavior. Black patriarchy benefits WSP culture because it slows our progress. There will be no Pan-African nation until misogynists stop disabling half the population.
Until recently, Tony Blair had never visited Malawi. Last summer there was a lot of international press coverage on the discovery of oil under Lake Malawi. Since then he’s developed an interest in the country’s “governance” and has visited twice in nine months.
He arrives in Malawi today, having successfully shoe-horned a couple of staffers from his “Africa Governance Initiative” into high-level advisory roles with Joyce Banda’s government.
It’s anyone’s guess why Blair still believes he and his cronies are worth listening to. Presumably for the same reason he saw fit to rack up bills of £1m a year at the American Colony Hotel in Jerusalem while working as a “peace envoy”. (He’s obviously doing a terrific job and no doubt the Middle East will be at peace any time now). Egyptians know him as an astute analyst of international affairs — remember how he pointed out that Mubarak was “an immensely courageous and a force for good” in, ahem, February 2011?
One thing Blair is very good at is getting large amounts of cash out of governments (just ask Kazakhstan) by riding the global gravy train for all it’s worth. He’s also good at setting up mystifying financial structures so nobody knows where he’s channeling his money.
It will certainly be a boost for him to be photographed with Malawi’s president, Joyce Banda, who despite facing a vigorous opposition at home nonetheless has far greater credibility on the international scene than he does (just last year Desmond Tutu called for Blair to be tried for his crimes at the Hague).
It should be noted that anybody who attempts to arrest Tony Blair during his Malawian safari can receive approximately 1.1 million Kwacha (£ 2,150), thanks to the Arrest Blair campaign established by British journalist George Monbiot.
[…] NOVEMBER 2013:
Tony Blair is facing questions over his role as adviser to the president of Malawi after the British government froze aid to the country amid a growing corruption scandal.
An official working in Malawi’s finance ministry was shot in the face and seriously wounded amid claims by his family he was about to expose widespread state corruption.
The assassination attempt and the web of corruption it simultaneously uncovered led to the arrests of several government officials, the sacking of the entire Malawian cabinet and the suspension of aid from the British government to the country. Millions of pounds are feared to have been stolen by officials.
Mr Blair and his charity the Tony Blair Africa Governance Initiative (AGI) has been working closely with Joyce Banda, Malawi’s president, since August 2012.—
I AM SO TIRED OF THAT WHITE MAN! SO TIRED, I TELL YOU!
