Juol Nhomngek, a Sudanese student in Kampala, Uganda, is concerned about reports of violent action against Ethiopian troops in Somalia.
The act of mutilating and dragging dead bodies along the streets by the Somalis to show their anger is barbaric and repugnant. Such an act is tantamount to cannibalism.
But what angers me most is the Somalis' claim that the world has abandoned them, after they heard from UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-Moon, that there would be no UN peace-keeping force for Somalia.
This might be true, but it is they who are trying to chase away African Union peace-keeping forces and Ethiopian soldiers from helping them bring about stability.
If these Somalis do not want to make and keep peace themselves, how can they expect the world to bring peace for them?

Aldophus Kpardeh from South Africa has Ugandans in his thoughts following the Lords Resistance Army rebels request for forgiveness
It is of no surprise to me that the LRA rebels are being welcomed and accepted by their victims who are now languishing in absolute poverty and trauma in Northern Uganda.
These rebels are being accepted out of fear after so many years of their evil deeds.
I therefore call on the International Criminial Court to reject any future requests for the withdrawal of those arrest warrants for four of the LRA's top commanders as this will set the stage for perpetual evil against humanity.
Wednesday 7th November
On Monday, US president George Bush awarded Liberia's president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf with the Presidential Medal of Freedom. A move that has not impressed Zolu Gobah at the University of Liberia.
Please allow me to tell President Bush that President Johnson Sirleaf and the People of Liberia do not need medals in order to reduce poverty and unemployment, combat HIV/AIDS, improve poor infrastructures or raise the literacy rate.
What we need from the American people is total debt cancellation without conditions.
President Bush: You and members of the Paris Club took one day to cancel Iraq's debt. Please do the same for Liberia.

Arnaud Emmanuel Ntirenganya in Bamenda, Cameroon, wants to raise a contentious issue.
It's the news that a young mother died after giving birth to twins, following claims that she had refused a blood transfusion because of her faith.
Jehovah's Witnesses refuse blood transfusions because they believe that God has forbidden it in the Bible. They believe that accepting blood transfusion is a sin.
Should we always respect someone's faith?
What about these twins? They now have no mother. Such a stance is borne out of one part of the Bible, a book written thousands of years ago. Can it, or should it, still be applied today?
