Special to USAfrica The Newspaper, Houston
USAfricaonline.com,CLASSmagazine and TheBlack Business Journal
NelsonMandela is USAfrica's Man of the Decade (1990-2000). It is the firsttime the most influential, first African-owned multimedia company inthe U.SA. has honored anyone with such designation and
appreciation. We continue to honor Mandela for:
serving as a catalyst in the birth of a new, multi-racialSouth Africa;
for remaining a durable, principled symbol for allbelievers in the logical, inevitable triumph of active, committeddemocratic forces over any army/gang of tyranny and oppression inAfrica and elsewhere;
for remaining the most relevant living person of Africandescent who has given impetus and cause for African-Americans to seekinstitutional and daily presence inside the African continent.
It is for these reasons, among others, that this statesman,rock ribbed nationalist, visionary, and stout defender of democracyand human rights is USAfrica's Man of the Decade (1990-2000)

Africa suffers the scourge of the virus. This life and pain of Kgomotso Mahlangu, a five-month-old AIDS patient (above) in a hospital in the Kalafong township near Pretoria, South Africa, on October 26, 1999, brings a certain, frightening reality to the sweeping and devastating destruction of human beings who form the core of any definition of a country's future, its national security, actual and potential economic development and internal markets.

AFRICA AND THE U.S. ELECTIONS
Beyond U.S. electoral shenanigans, rewards and dynamics of a democratic republic hold lessons for African politics.
Bush's position on Africa is "ill-advised." The position stated by Republican presidential aspirant and Governor of Texas, George Bush where he said that "Africa will not be an area of priority" in his presidency has been questioned by USAfricaonline.com Publisher Chido Nwangwu. He added that Bush's "pre-election position was neither validated by the economic exchanges nor geo-strategic interests of our two continents."
Nwangwu, adviser to the Mayor of Houston (the 4th largest city in the U.S., and immigrant home to thousands of Africans) argued further that "the issues of the heritage interests of 35 million African-Americans in Africa, the volume and value of oil business between between the U.S and Nigeria and the horrendous AIDS crisis in Africa do not lend any basis for Governor Bush's ill-advised position which removes Africa from fair consideration" were he to be elected president.
