Another victory for Mugabe


President Robert Mugabe scored another victory against the West following reports that he had been cleared to attend the African Union-European Union summit in Brussels in April. Mugabe is still under EU sanctions and cannot travel to Europe. AU leaders had resolved at their summit in Addis Ababa last week that they would not attend the summit if Mugabe was not invited. Mugabe was elected the AU’s first deputy chairman at the summit. Some observers said this was a clear endorsement of Mugabe’s presidency. The EU and the United States have refused to recognise Mugabe’s victory in last year’s elections. Previous attempts to bar Mugabe from the AU-EU summit have met with similar boycott threats by African leaders.
