For over five decades, Africans north and south of the Sahara have tragically suffered deaths, destruction, and horror in the hands of those who desperately resort to violence and those who by their conducts inspire, instigate or encourage the use of violence. It took the world the despicable and bloody event of September 11 2001 to wake up to this global reality.
