Listen to this special edition of the Pan-African Journal hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire. In this broadcast we present our regular PANW reports with dispatches on the commemorations of the 104th anniversary of the founding of the African National Congress (ANC), the ruling party in the Republic of South Africa; a date for the run-off elections in the Central African Republic has been set for Jan. 31 with two former prime ministers facing each other amid the withdrawal of Congolese troops from the UN peacekeeping force in light of allegations of misconduct; more attention is being given to the federal investigation in the United States into the poisoning of the water resources by the right-wing governor in the state of Michigan; and the Chicago police have been cited again in a killing which has come under national scrutiny. In the second hour we continue our commemoration of the 87th anniversary of the birth of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. looking at various aspects of his social legacy. Also in this same hour we look back at the contributions of South African Communist Party leader Joe Slovo who passed away 21 years ago on Jan. 7, 1995 in the aftermath of the ANC's ascendancy to power in 1994. Finally, we reexamine the apparent murder of former United Nations Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold in 1961 during the Congo crisis through a lecture delivered by Susan Williams of the Institute of Commonwealth Studies at the University of Oxford's African Studies Center lecture series
