jonathan-moyo_.jpgPolitical scientist, Professor Jonathan Moyo has described the decision by Malawi President, Joyce Banda not to invite Sudanese President Omar Al-Bashir to the forthcoming Africa Union, (AU) Summit as very unfortunate.

Professor Moyo said by doing so Malawi is departing from the continental position of solidarity with President Al-Bashir who was issued with a warrant of arrest by the International Criminal Court, (ICC) for alleged human rights abuses.

He said the Malawian president is bowing down to pressure from donors whom she is reconciling with at the expense of the interests of the continent.

Professor Moyo said Africa as a continent is not in agreement with the ICC as it is being used by the west especially the United States against African leaders yet the US does not want its citizens to be subjected to the international body.

He said the AU’s move to shift the venue of the meeting to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia is commendable.

"I am here for as long as I am still sane, with good memory and will power. I thank God for giving me extra strength. I still have a bright mind; I still have will. I know our history more than you do. I know the wishes of those heroes and those who lie elsewhere more than you do. I know the wishes of the chiefs, dead and alive." - At 6th Zanu PF National People's Congress, 2014.
