Mugabe dresses down the UN

182

Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe has spat venom at the United Nations (UN) for sidelining Africa in decision making roles.

Speaking during the opening of the 26th summit of African Union (AU) in Addis Ababa in Ethiopia yesterday, Mugabe called a spade a spade in a nearly hour long speech. In his remarks, he asked the west and United States of America (USA) to stop meddling in African affairs.

The 91 year-old attacked UN in front of its General Secretary Ban Ki Moon. However, the South Korean was spared from the heat as he was singled out for good performance. The Zimbabwe leader called for Africa inclusion in UN Security Council, saying failure to do so will lead to exodus of all African nations from the organisation.

He said Africa should have at least two permanent members in the Security Council which comprises USA, Britain, France, Russia and China.
“Tell them, tell them we are not ghosts, that we also belong to the world, part of the world called Africa, and Africans shall no longer tolerate a position of slavery, slavery by any other name, by denial of rights, by being treated in a manner we regard as not equal to the manner in which they treat themselves,” said Mugabe.

The Zimbabwe leader was making his last speech as chairman of AU before surrendering his crown to Chad President, Idriss Deby. Other African leaders and diplomats could not help but cheer him as he was speaking.
Mugabe also faulted UN for having its headquarters in New York, United States of America. He said a greater portion of world population is in Asia and Africa which qualifies the two continents to be right places for headquarters. Then a standing ovation followed after uttering the last sentence on this matter.

Mugabe is unpopular in the west for his 35 year rule. He maintains that he will rule Zimbabwe for as long as he lives because he still has energy. He has always stood firm against Western interference in Africa.

  30. Long life ROBERT GABRIEL MUGABE (true son of Africa),,we trust you & ‘ll 4eva,,,,Now its time that all African leaders should learn to Mr R.G.M how to speak the truth,

  31. If Badada ba Gudolo did better it was when Bingus was president and the reason was that we were among Highly indebted Countries so the IMF and world Bank and Donor community felt very sorry for the state of our economy that of course he one of the negotiators . Really Malawi was forgiven all the debts and money which was supposed to be paid the WB and IMF and donnor community was saved to do other development project here in Malawi I hear Malawi was savining 15blln kwacha every quarter. That is where badada looked as if he is performer. Vbut now without HIPC and Donnor bugdet only relying on broadening inCme tax base. and burdening a common man with high taxes with no any other option its really hectic that’s why he has looked into heaVens seeking Gods interVention! That he is old he must accept the fact and leave it to younger generations of Chilimas calibre.

  32. Poverty make African Leaders fail to speak the truth. But it is different case with Robert Mugabe. Bravo Mr president. Long live!

    • Nonsense,you respect him whilst he is making Zimbabwe a tuckshop ,No electricity,No water,abusing Human rights,kidnapping opposition activists,demolishing peoples houses,research more before you put your disgusting coments,long live to the son of the devil ,a heartless ancestor

  33. Thumb up comrade! Africa is tired of impearism fundamentalism! Africa is not the raborotary for the IMF for their monetaty experience African needs strong readers like Mugabe, Gadaffi, Bingu.Wake up african readers not everything said by the west is right.

  34. I wished we had 5 or more of African leaders like him. Africa would have stopped being the western puppets. But unfortunately the other African leaders fear mzungu as if is God. Well done Mugabe. You deserve all my praises
