Sudan's new envoy

His name is Scott Gration and he is America's new envoy to Sudan. They said he is the perfect man for the job since he grew up in the Congo and he speaks Swahili.....

Is Sudan the Congo and do we speak Swahili?:S

As an African American, it continues to pain me when I hear about these embarrassments. Some people here truly still believe Africa is a country and not a continent. Ugh!

You're lucky they even knew what Congo and Swhahili are...they could have said "he's lived in Africa and speaks African."

Hi Kizzie,

Hope you are well! We have just finished a new show for the Darfur Radio Project and would love for you and your readers to listen at

In our new show, we talk about Radio Dabanga in Darfur and Sudanese reactions to the ICC arrest warrant for al-Bashir. We also hear about a Sudanese family's recent trip to Darfur for a wedding and the role of political Islam in Sudan.

Take care,
