"Pambazuka News is for me a real site of a politics from the point of African peoples, from a distance from African states; it is a site which allows militants for a better Africa to find and proclaim the conditions of that politics on the basis of fidelity to the daily defense of peoples' rights, people's resistance to inhumanity and thus to the fidelity to the equality of humanity. The site allows people to read the infinity of situations facing African peoples in view of sorting out possibilities of the ways out. - Ernest Wamba dia Wamba"
