5 November 2012The Timbuktu manuscripts must be preserved because they reflect the contribution of the African mind to the human story.This is according to Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe, who was speaking in Johannesburg on Friday at the launch of a book about the construction of the Ahmed Institute of Higher Learning and Islamic Research in Mali.The building was constructed to house the historic manuscripts of African scholars dating back some 800 years. The largest collection of manuscripts, numbering about 30 000, is housed in the institute, named after the famous scholar Ahmed Baba, who lived from 1556 to 1627. The rest of the texts are housed in the private libraries of families in and around the city.Entitled “Building an African Partnership”, the book tells the story of the cooperation of South Africa and Mali in constructing the building, dating from 2001, when then President Thabo Mbeki first mooted the idea, to 2009, when the new impressive structure was officially opened.Motlanthe paid tribute to Mbeki for showing “remarkable foresight in understanding the intrinsic value of the manuscripts”.Motlanthe said the exceptional cooperation between South Africa and Mali reflected close ties forged over the years.However, he expressed concern over the threats posed to the building by armed rebels. “I hope that no human will be so base as to threaten these treasures.”Essop Pahad, chairperson of the Timbuktu Trust, said now that the book had been published, the trust would fold and the project would be handed over to the Department of Arts and Culture.Deputy Arts and Culture Minister Joe Phaahla pledged South Africa’s continued support in preserving the manuscripts. He expressed hope that the conflict in Mali would be resolved and the manuscripts saved.“One can only hope that through the intervention of the African Union, the political situation in Mali will be normalised as soon as possible, and work that is still pending regarding this project will be resumed without any further hurdles,” Phaahla said.Source: SANews.gov.za

About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say AC Milan defender Calabria: I’ve never seen a striker like Higuainby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveAC Milan defender Davide Calabria admits he appreciates working with Gonzalo Higuain.The striker is currently struggling for goals.But Calabria says, “I told my agent that I’d never seen a striker like Higuain. He’s very good and always done well wherever he’s played.“Is there a problem with him? No, there isn’t. He’s having a tough time, which can happen, but he’s our Cristiano Ronaldo, given us prestige and something more to the team in general terms.“He’s won a lot and he has so much experience. Maldini? He’s an idol. I’ve always said and thought that seeing him gives me something more, even in training.”
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has revealed he will like to return to where he started his managerial career before he calls it quits.The Spanish tactician started his managerial career as the coach of Barcelona’s B team and he insists he would love to return to the side before he calls time on his managerial career.The former Barcelona midfielder took over Barca B in 2007 before becoming coach of the senior side a year later, following the departure of Frank Rijkaard. Guardiola won three LaLiga titles, two Champions Leagues and two Club World Cups in a memorable four years before enjoying similar levels of success with German side Bayern Munich.Now in his third season with the Citizens, he is hoping to defend the Premier League title they won last season with a record-breaking points tally of 100 and has already hinted at staying in England for a decade.However, Guardiola hopes to conclude his career in the dugout in the same place that it started.“My teams are going to try to play how I want,” he said to Jorge Valdano on Universo Valdano.Mourinho knows why City and Liverpool are so far ahead George Patchias – September 13, 2019 Jose Mourinho knows why Manchester City and Liverpool are so far ahead of everyone else in the Premier League.In an interview with the Telegraph,…“I will finish where I started; my final steps will be with youth teams. Hopefully, it will be Barca’s.””Acabaré donde empecé: mis últimos pasos ojalá sean en el Barça”, Pep Guardiola en #UniversoValdano, este jueves a las 21.30h en Movistar Liga de Campeones. pic.twitter.com/H7Mjq6iyqK— La Casa del Fútbol en Movistar+ (@casadelfutbol) September 12, 2018Guardiola has previously ruled out returning to Camp Nou to coach the senior Barca side but has been linked with a possible return as sporting director. His contract with City expires at the end of the 2020-21 season.
Leicester City defender Harry Maguire refuses to rule out a move to Manchester United, but admits it won’t be easy for a “giant” club to sign himThe England international is regarded as one of the Premier League’s best centre-backs following an impressive World Cup campaign at Russia.Maguire had been heavily linked with a switch to United in the summer transfer window alongside Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld.But Maguire ultimately remained at Leicester and recently signed a new five-year deal, which reportedly lacks any buy-out clause.However, due to his Champions League ambitions, Maguire admits that he may have to make a difficult choice in the future should another top club chase his services.“Yes, definitely it would be a difficult one,” Maguire told BBC, when asked about a potential bid from a big club in the future.“I’m an ambitious player. If you’re not an ambitious footballer, you’re in the wrong game really.“Everyone wants to play at the top level, everyone wants to play in the biggest tournaments in the world, so obviously the Champions League is one.”Daniel Farke, From mid-table in the Championship to the Premier League Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Norwich City manager, Daniel Farke, has taken his team from the middle of the table in the English Championship to play with the big boys in the Premier League.The 25-year-old feels indebted to Leicester for their continued support, which helped him earn a spot in the England World Cup team.He added: “I want to concentrate fully on Leicester this year. See where it takes the club and see where we go from there.“The platform they gave me to go and play at a World Cup is something I’ll never forget, so it’s a big part of me wanting to show something back.“Since I made my debut at Sheffield United I felt like I could step on and climb the leagues. Signing for Leicester, they gave me a great platform to go and play for England as well.“My main aim is to be playing week in, week out in the Premier League and to get picked for England. However, I do want to win trophies. I want to win trophies with my country and I want to win trophies at club level.”An incredible journey. The highs and the lows… the joys of football. Massive thankyou for your support throughout. Special mention to the manager for giving me this opportunity. @England 🏴🦁❤️ pic.twitter.com/YfWceqrIiL— Harry Maguire (@HarryMaguire93) July 14, 2018
