Former South Africa President Nelson Mandela’s pronouncement that: “world peace could only be achieved only if all nations, including the most powerful, adhered to its founding principles” and heed to calls for diplomatic resolution as a moral stand (Business Day, 2002, Dec. 18, p. 1 of online printout) was described by Wanyeki (2003) as Mandela coming to the rescue of African leaders by indicating that the continent’s stance for diplomatic negotiations must be allowed to take its course, at a time when they were cowed and reluctant to express their position. As the United States and her allies sought a second resolution , the sub-Saharan African media commended Angola, Cameroon and the Guineas and the African members of the UN Security Council, for their steadfast and courageous decision not to reveal their stance despite American intensive lobbying and bullying to vote in favor of the resolution authorizing force (Kelley, 2003, March 3).
