African Union Calls for Settlement in Zimbabwe

Date: July 1, 2008
Authors: KENNEDY ABWAO and ALAN COWELL and Alan Cowell
QUOTE: The union, a 53-nation body that is Africa’s most authoritative group, made the call after a two-day gathering of African leaders marked by divisions over the handling of the crisis in Zimbabwe. While President Omar Bongo of Gabon endorsed Mr. Mugabe’s presidency, Botswana urged the suspension of Zimbabwe from African forums because its participation would “give unqualified legitimacy to a process which cannot be considered legitimate.”
