Nose to the South

The Sudan Tribune reports that Southern Sudan's H.E Salva Kiir is taking no chances with the (political?)developments in Southern Sudan! Six cabinet posts were (unbelievingly? / strategically?)reshuffled and among those affected were the Vice President of Southern Sudan, Dr. Riek Machar and Mrs. Garang. The vice President is no longer enjoying his previledges as a Minister of Housing and Lands, while Garang's widow, who was Minister of Transport and Roads, became a Presidential Advisor of Gender and Human Rights and ironically becoming a symbol of an entrenched gender imbalance in the same government she is supposed to advise on gender strategies: Women in Development. Women and Gender. Gender Mainstreaming. Gender every where, gender no where! Gender no where, Men 99% Vs Women 0.99%. Invalids possible.

Meanwhile UgaBYTES reports that the East African Secretariat down south in Tanzania wants SMEs to show case internet potential in East Africa through its East African Community Regional ICT Support Programme: Open Call for Proposal. Project should cost between 5,000 - 20,000 Euros and last a maximum of 12 months!
