Mugabe: Europe shouldn’t tell Africans about women
Mugabe: Europe shouldn’t tell Africans about women

Zimbabwe president and soon-to-be-elected AU chairperson, Robert Mugabe, says the representation of women in European parliaments isn’t good enough to warrant them advising Africans about the issue.

Harare - A state-run newspaper in Zimbabwe says a humanitarian mission by Kofi Annan, Jimmy Carter and a South African human rights advocate was blocked because the three failed to consult with Zimbabwean authorities.

The Sunday Mail quotes Foreign Minister Samuel Mumbengegwi as saying the former UN secretary-general Annan did not make proper arrangements for the planned visit.

Annan said on Saturday that Zimbabwe had given no official reason for refusing entry to him, former US President Carter and rights advocate Graca Machel.

The three are members of The Elders group formed by Nelson Mandela to tackle world conflicts.

They wanted to assess the needs of Zimbabweans, who are suffering from hunger and disease.
