The New African has an interesting article about Tanzania's President Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete, "There Is Hope For Africa" (you have to buy the magazine to get the full article). I find it interesting because although he has much governmental experience. This is a very competent African head of state that has not been attacked politically by Western powers. Kikwete some good energy, but lacks major experience with only 15 months in office. However, he's been a Foreign Minister in previous administrations, so he some experience carrying agendas. What I mean is that you can think that Mugabe and Aristide had excellent decades of experience and progress in their administrative posts, but were the subject of political assassination when their policies didn't coincide with Western interests. Anyways, it'll be interesting to see what happens.
