It is not the matter of who will win the debate, it is neither of what the reaction will be from Beijing, Tehran or Moscow…. it is about the footprints and lessons that can be drawn by African countries in their presidential campaigns as we have just watched or observed.
From our narrow thinking as Uyui wordpress, we believe the era of African dirty political presidential campaigns (if any) would not lead African nations to a meaningful social economic prosperity BUT the BRAIN and decent campaigns will definately DO. I would wish to watch more such presidential debate in African countries as we have watched matured, advanced and decent US presidential debate. Definately the presidential debate is an eye opener to Africa. What is probably important is where applicable such good practises should be customized to fit and address African context “….debating without wrangling…” If wish were horses, I would wish to watch more African Presidential Candidates debates in the near future. We are in a global village.
