Qudos West African Leaders

I am very heartened that West African leaders are willing to voice their disdain at the travesty that occured in Togo over the weekend. In light of what the Europeans did after the frudulent Ukraine elections, I am proud to see tha our leaders are beinnning to show some backbone when it comes to supporting Democracy in Africa. I know that some will argue that its all because Togo is a big country, and that African leaders still refuse to critique comrade Mugabe. But we must start somewhere, we may allow the old despots to rule, but let us not allow new ones to crop up.

Well said. The sanctions and threatened suspension of Togo from ECOWAS should just not be threats but implemented immediately - until democratic elections are held at the very least.
