Our resident God-fearing presidents are tickled by men in skirts getting hot under the collar about the antics of a rebel priest.

21st October 2006

Kibarkingmad has a theory about President George W Bush's War on Terror and, naturally, there's a colourful analogy to illustrate his point.

11th November 2006

Our esteemed leaders are amused at Mo Ibrahim's new prize for achievements in leadership to be awarded to a former African head of state. Are they in the running for such an award they wonder?

18th November 2006

An accusation of a coup plot in Ghana has got the boys excited. Olushambles is convinced the continent thrives on such excitement, after all peace and security can be a bit dull.

25th November 2006

What - muse Olushambles and Kibarkingmad - would an African consider worth going to war for? A cow? the wife? land? Maybe. But surely, fighting for God is going a little to far?

2nd December 2006

Nearly 200 years since the abolition of slavery and UK PM Tony Blair catches the attention of Network's own leaders with a convoluted utterance that does everything but say 'sorry'.

9th December 2006

Kibarkingmad has a word or two for Somalia's Union of Islamic Courts in Kismayo this week after hearing that a ban has been imposed on khat.

President Olushambles is working on his New Year's address to the nation. We listen in on an early draft as he runs it past his co-hort, President Kibarkingmad.
