“Man is a political animal by nature, he is a scientist by chance or choice, he is a moralist because he is a man. The history of political thought is the history of the moral evaluation of political power.” –  Hans Joachim Morgenthau 

April has a habit of making itself an important month in the politics of our pearl as well as our continent. It was in 1979 that April saw the back of Idi Amin as he fled to Libya and then onwards to the embrace of the then Patriarch of the House of Saud in Jeddah.
