Abdullahi Ali Ibrahim is running for president of Sudan... al-Bashir: be afraid, very afraid!

I don't think Abdullahi stands a chance (I know him only very distantly, but have enjoyed his presence at various SSA meetings). But it's great to see him setting the example (see this fine profile). A Joseph Ki-Zerbo for Sudan? The quote at the end of the profile referring to Sankara though... a trifle ironic... Sankara immediately moved to squash Ki-Zerbo, who fled to Paris and spent a decade in exile!
