Call me sceptical but why do I get the feeling that the African Union Summit is not all there is to it? Where are the other political parties with regards to the thugs which are being welcomed to South Africa? Why is South Africa associating with such people – Does not our government see the implications it will have upon our economy internationally?
Is South Africa aiming to isolate itself from the Western Countries and become independent whilst forming the United States of Africa? Thenceforth to which the other communist countries such as Russia, and China become alliances to opposing the Western economy. Thereby relieving itself from the pressures of International Morality and the chains of democracy? Why else would Mugabe inconvenience himself to stumble into South Africa for the summit?
In February 2009, upon being elected chairman of the 53-nation African Union in Ethiopia, Gaddafi told the assembled African leaders: “I shall continue to insist that our sovereign countries work to achieve the United States of Africa.” The BBC reported that Gaddafi had proposed “a single African military force, a single currency and a single passport for Africans to move freely around the continent”. Other African leaders stated they would study the proposal’s implications, and re-discuss it in May 2009.
The African Union, by contrast, has set itself the task of building a “united and integrated” Africa by 2025,
Is this the mandate of the African Union, is it aiming to become the next superpower? From the trade partners one can see that South Africa has somewhat already aligned itself to its Coalitions.
