by SAVIOUS KWINIKA
JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – THE Crisis in Zimbabwe Coalition, a pro-democracy group, has expressed doubt in the African Union (AU) resolving the problems around the continent.
“We strongly and unequivocally feel that under the leadership of Zimbabwean president, Robert Mugabe, the AU has proved a distinct failure to systematically and proactively confront the multitude of woes afflicting African people,” the organisation said ahead of the 25th African Union (AU) ordinary session of Heads of State and Government.
The session of the heads of state will be held on Sunday in Johannesburg, South Africa, days after the AU Summit resumes.
Ahead of the session, Crisis in Zimbabwe Coalition urged African leaders attending t to bring lasting solutions to problems bedeviling the continent.
It urged the leaders to provide “good and exemplary leadership.”
“The AU through its leadership must take heed of early warnings in order to prevent escalation of conflict and instability in potential hotspots within the continent,” the organisation stated.
“As civil society, we applaud efforts by the AU in bringing peace and stability in Mali, Libya, Central African Republic, DRC and Madagascar. We note the challenges in Burundi, Lesotho and Swaziland and urge action to resolve the same.”
Crisis in Zimbabwe Coalition also mentioned the problems afflicting its home country.
