The pressure seems to be mounting on dear Bashir on the Darfur catastrophe. The heavy weights are in Khartoum: China, America and now South Africa.
Thabo Mbeki is a respected African Statesman who is well respected in Sudan. He was instrumental in helping Sudan sign the CPA and was personally present in Naivasha, Kenya on 31st December 2004 when the agreement was signed. Infact I was there too! :)
Maybe he could be the voice that Bashir can listen too, just for once. He is now charged with telling Khartoum that the world is getting impatient with him and must be clear on the issues. Mbeki has the right to be concern, for his troops are currently serving in Darfur with the AU.
Let us see how he fairs . . .
