Doubting is a virtue which can liberate those who exercise it from the slavery and tyranny of religion and dogma. Many Africans are going through a process of awakening at this moment in history. They are experiencing the liberating possibilities and promises of expressing their doubts and disbelief.
Doubting frees the mind from the shackling and suffocating effects of comforting superstition and orthodoxy. It expels the dogma of blind faith and exorcizes the demon of thoughtlessness which prevents the mind from engaging in unhindered exploration of life’s horizons. The empowering possibilities of doubt are captured in the story of Sara. Sara comes from Zambia in Southern Africa. She declares that doubting religion has led her to “the right side of history” and recounts her undulating path to this bright and happy side of life.

The newly appointed Tambala belongs to the Order of the Carmelite Discalced (OCD) and becomes the first priest from that Order in the country to be promoted to the high office of a bishop.
However, a press statement from the Apostolic Nunciature in Malawi states that Archbishop Thomas Msusa remains in-charge of the diocese until the bishop-elect ‘takes possession of the Episcopal See of Zomba’.

FAREED ZAKARIA, HOST: The East African nation of Kenya has seen great highs and great lows of late. In April, Al Shabaab militants stormed across the porous border from Somalia and killed almost 150 people at a Kenyan university. That followed the infamous Westgate Mall siege – also by Al Shabaab – that killed 67 people and lasted 4 days. In July, President Obama made his first trip as President to his father's native land. In the weeks leading up the President's arrival, the U.S. conducted drone strikes against Al Shabaab in their sanctuary of Somalia. I recently had the chance to sit down with Kenya's President Uhuru Kenyatta to discuss terror, economics, and playing host to President Obama.
