The Clinton administration has changed its tune ever so slightly on Nigeria. After his policymakers denounced the current president, the military dictator Sani Abacha, President Clinton has hinted that the U.S. position could soften if the general competes as a civilian in the upcoming presidential election. Abacha needs to do more to restore democracy than take off his uniform. The general may be willing to run as a civilian in the Aug.

Uganda's deplorable Anti-Homosexuality Bill has reappeared periodically for consideration by its parliament, but until now it has always been withdrawn or placed on the back burner. Last week, however, it failed to disappear; instead, it was approved and awaits the president's signature. That's very bad news. It is already illegal in Uganda for men to engage in sexual relations with other men. But the proposed law strengthens and clarifies the prohibition, setting a 14-year jail term for a first conviction and "imprisonment for life for the offense of aggravated homosexuality," according to a government statement.

The outbreak of a "hot war" between Eritrea and Ethiopia is potentially a major blow to Africa's incipient renaissance.

The first political speech I ever gave was in support of Patrice Lumumba, first president of a Congo that previously had been a Belgian colony. This was in 1961. Soon thereafter I saw my first police riot, when a couple thousand of us demonstrated outside the Belgian Embassy in London, Lumumba having been murdered with the connivance of the Western powers and the direct assistance of the CIA station in Kinshasa.

Africa "doesn't fit into the national strategic interests, as far as I can see them," George W. Bush declared three years ago as he campaigned for the White House. His five-day, five-nation African tour, which began Monday, shows just how much the president's perspective has changed.

Eventually, the idea that it's OK to be against gay marriage because of your religious beliefs is going to seem as silly as opposing interracial marriage because you weren't raised that way. Eventually gay marriage will be as normal as interracial marriage, which, don't forget, was  illegal in many states until 1967 . Even conservatives, despite the pronouncements of party elders, are coming around. Last week at the CPAC conference, the generational divide was on vivid display.

Laurent Kabila, the guerrilla leader-turned-president, appointed the bulk of his interim government early today, reserving the most powerful portfolios for his key advisors and abolishing the post of prime minister. Kabila's chief political rival, Etienne Tshisekedi, was not among the 13 names announced to reporters by a spokesman shortly before 1 a.m. The spokesman said 20 people will ultimately be in the Cabinet, but it is highly unlikely that Tshisekedi will now join.
