Sierra Leone's Berewa heads for Peace Talks in Zimbabwe

Former Vice President of Sierra Leone, Solomon Ekuma Berewa will today October 16, 2008 depart the shores of Sierra Leone to deliver a keynote address on the occasion of the fourth Dag Hammarskjöld Commemorative Seminar in Zimbabwe.

The event is scheduled to take place at Africa University, Mutare in Harare from October 20-22, 2008.

Mr. Berewa is expected to speak on "Approaches to Negotiation for Peace Building in Africa."

"I believe I was chosen to deliver this keynote address because of the role I played in the restoration of peace in the country and by helping to maintain peace following last year’s elections," Mr. Berewa told Awareness Times.

He says Dug Hammerskjold, the second United Nations Secretary General who died in plane cash over Zambia on his way from peace negotiations following the murder of Patrice Lumumba in Congo in 1961, was a peace loving person who died in the course of humanity.

He says Congo, where Dag Hammarskjöld met his death, has changed its name at least three times since 1960.

"But it has not changed its ways. The situation of conflict which has prevailed there for nearly half a century now, has still not been transformed into a situation of peace and stability," the former vice president stated, adding that Hammarskjöld’s death was in vain because the mission he embarked on was not accomplished and no longer worth pursuing.

"I am honored to deliver a keynote address at an event commemorating his work and efforts," Mr. Berewa said, adding that his presentation at the event will focus on approaches for arriving at just and workable peace settlements.

"I will also discuss the arduous task of building the peace so secured in order to ensure that it becomes a permanent and sustainable feature of the particular country," Mr. Berewa told Awareness Times.

The said seminar will be attended by diplomats, senior politicians and academics.
