Pope urges African leaders to eradicate corruption, violence

"With the weapons of integrity, magnanimity, and compassion, you can transform the continent and free your people from the scourge of cupidity, violence and turmoil, and lead them on the path paved with principles indispensable to any modern and democracy....
.....the respect and promotion of human rights, fair governance, independent judiciary, a free press, civil democracy, a network of effective schools and hospitals, and most importantly, a resolve coming from converted hearts to wipe out corruption, once and for all".
Pope Benedict in Angola today
