    Colonists want to come back, look at North Africa: Mugabe

    THE forthcoming African Union Summit to be hosted by Equatorial Guinea next month is critical in light of the machinations by Western countries in North Africa and the return of colonists in full force, President Mugabe has said.

    He said this just before holding a closed door meeting with the special envoy from Equatorial Guinea President, State Secretary in Charge of National Security, Juan Antonio Bibang Nchuchuma, where they discussed various issues ahead of the summit.

    The AU heads of state and government summit is slated from 30 June to 1st July 2011.

    Equatorial Guinea President Teodoro Obiang Nguema is the current AU chairman.

    "The forthcoming summit will be an important one. People who colonised us want to come back, see what they are doing in North Africa," said President Mugabe.

    A number of North African countries have been facing domestic uprisings since the beginning of the year that have seen the ouster of president Hosni Mubarak of Egypt and Tunisia's Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali.

    In Libya, rebels assisted by Nato forces have been waging a war to remove Colonel Muammar Gaddafi and have refused mediation efforts by the AU.

    France and Italy have been at the forefront calling for the Libyan leader's ouster. The two countries including Britain and the US have openly called for Col Gaddafi's ouster and have been accused of violating UN Resolution 1973 that allowed intervention to protect civilians by targeting the Libyan leader and his family.

    Col Gaddafi's son and his three grandchildren were killed in an air raid by NATO forces over the weekend.

    A British army general has vowed to crush the Libyan leader.

    France has also been accused of playing a prominent role in the capture of former Cote d'Ivoire president Laurent Gbabgo after he refused to vacate office following his loss in a disputed election won by Mr Alassane Ouatarra.

    Speaking to journalists after the meeting with President Mugabe yesterday, Nchuchuma said preparations for the summit to be held between June 30 and July 1 were on course.

    "As you know, it (security) is very important. Africa suffered for a long time. We need security and we are working with others to stabilise the situations we have in Africa," he said.

    "We are very busy and as you know for the 42 years of independence of Equatorial Guinea this is the first time we have hosted the AU Summit.

    "People of Equatorial Guinea and the government are very excited. We have prepared a new city for the summit," he said.

    Zimbabwe and Equatorial Guinea have strong relations after Zimbabwe intercepted mercenaries led by Briton Simon Mann at the Harare International Airport that were enroute to the Central African country to carry out a coup while the oil-rich nation assisted Zimbabwe at the height of fuel shortages.

    Although Mugabe stayed long as a President, but he is a good leader in another part of a Shilling.

    What I like Mugabe is his ability to tell the truth against the westerners. By the time being Africa we need strong leaders against westerners otherwise we will be taken again as slaves.

    The only big thing the AU is supposed to do now in their fourthcoming meeting is to establish the African Forces to compete with NATO, otherwise we are in danger of being colonized again.

    Mwanakatwe, the idea of an African High Command antedates the establishment of the OAU (now AU). It was first coined by Kwame Nkrumah in November 1960, during the Congo crisis. Nkrumah later passionately propagated the idea during the 1964 meeting without success after he was rebuffed by, among others, the late Mwalimu J. Nyerere. The Algerian leader, Ahmed Ben Bella went farther to call Nkrumah's vision "a pie in the sky".

    Na sasa tunayaona na tunajutia. A time is in Africa when there shall be weeping, wailing, mourning and gnashing of teeth!
