Robert Mugabe's Position Won't Change AU Charter - Kabila

Former National Youth Organizer of the Convention People's Party (CPP), James Kwabena Bomfeh has expressed reservations over the appointment of Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe as Chairman of the African Union.

Making his submissions on Peace FM's political programme "Kokrokoo", Mr. Bomfeh, popularly called Kabila believed Robert Mugabe's chairmanship will not cause any changes so far as the unity of Africa is concerned.

He explained that the AU was established with the aim of uniting the African continent and fighting in the interest of Africa but to him, the Union has since inception failed to accomplish its objectives.

Expounding further, Kabila asserted that “Robert Mugabe’s position personally will not change the charter of AU as it stands today.”

On the flipside, Kabila charged Ghana's President John Dramani Mahama, as ECOWAS Chairman, to show "the leadership qualities Ghana can give to the African and continental agenda and stop the entrenched positions that will not pose solutions to the things confronting our world [the way that we’re going] today.”
