Gettelfinger of Evansville Bish By BILL PRITCHARD Catholic News Service WASHINGTON (CNS) -- As Pope John Paul I! pre- pared to begin his 10th trip to Africa Feb. 3, the continent and its more than 800 million people seemed as troubled as ever. Troops rioted in the capi- tals of Zaire and Togo, peace was on the ropes in Angola, Kenya's president had shut down the newly elected Par- liament, and AIDS continued to spread its shadow across Uganda and other countries. There was continued bloody political-sectarian war in Sudan, Somalm seemed to be functioning as a country -- and then a shadow of one thanks only to U.S. Marine firepower. But Africans throughout the continent were also trying to tackle and overcome some of their daunting political, so- cial and economic problems. Catholics  African and for- eign -- were involved.

Sudan, on the pope's itinerary, is in the midst of a conflict of many parts. The main clash is between the government of the Arabized and largely Islamic north and the black African animist and Christian south. I I I The small bat powerful Muslim Brotherhood in the north was able to tailor a campaign to convert the country to the Islamic state it envisioned  which includes applying Koranic law to all citizens, expelling Christian missionaries and subduing autonomous movements in the south.
