"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)



In other news, the head of the Bukavu bureau of Radio Okapi, which is the best source of news in the Congo, was assassinated last night. Radio Okapi is run by the UN peacekeeping mission. It models what a free and fair press looks like, and provides reliable information in many of Congo's languages. It's unclear whether the murder was "simply criminal" or related to his job, or the death threats he had received.

Guess whose advisor continues to insist she should go to Bukavu?
