I was dismayed to see Mr. B.F. Bankie revert in his article in January / February 2006 edition of ( Vol. 3 No.1) to the vicious circle he has pursued for some time in discussing the issue of the Borderlands, as a zone of perpetual conflict between Pan Africanism and Pan Arabism. Had Mr. Bankie been just another colonial anthropologist of the traditional school, we would have understood his far-fetched aims and limited horizons, but I know him to be a true modern political researcher who treats the issues of Pan Africanism or Arabism soberly, making a clear distinction between the era of colonial anthropology and that of National Liberation.
