African Union Slams Zimbabwe

But will this resolution be passed by African Heads of State at their annual summit later this month?

On many previous occasions the west has condemned African leaders for their lack of criticism of Mugabe's regime. Now however the perfect opportunity to show disgust at the Harare government has arisen. Whether the move by the AU human rights committee is a mere attempt to deflect EU and US criticism remains to be seen.

Something makes me think that this time will be just like all others. Africa's depsots usually unite to protect themselves, and as soon as the can of worms that is true Democracy is opened in Zimbabwe, the position of Meles Zenawi, Paul Kagame and others becomes all the more uncomfortable. Pie in the Sky im afraid for now...
