Do western leaders are accountable for oppressed nations like ours?
Certainly not, because we didn’t elect them and thy are not accountable to us, who would tell them stop the rhetorics and mind your dirty business of double-standard, the occasional lip services are not working in long-term for both the western countries and the developing rich natural resource countries,
Niger is one the largest uranium producing country, the must-have energy around the world, the western countries were quietly consuming the uranium and didn’t bother to speak out when president Mamadou Tandja was violating the constitution, the situation here in Djibouti it is similar, unfortunately we are heading the same directions, no reaction so far from the western countries as long as their interest are taken care. This is how the western countries their institutions like UN reacted the news of military coup which ousted president Mamadou Tandja according to AFP;
The United States called for a “speedy return to democracy”. What kind of democracy , I think what the US means they need another poppet quickly who can look after their interest isn’t it ?
Former colonial ruler France demanded fresh elections “in the coming months”. Well here is another hypocrisy, election without proper procedure and backing constitution is not a democracy perhaps it’s a second class of democracy that we don’t know, if the French government believes democracy as they say they wouldn’t tolerate the irresponsible behaviour of Mamadou Tandja and IOG
This is how the AU reacted “We have condemned the coup and imposed sanctions on Niger: Niger is suspended from all activities of the AU,” said Mull Sebujja Katende, who presides over the AU’s peace and security council.
AU is an organization infested with similar tyrants, what kind of advice are you expecting a ruler like IOG who is determined to follow the same path like Mamadou Tandja of Niger?.
“The AU has called for Niger to revert to the constitution that was in place before Tandja’s controversial referendum” what a group of morons, were where they when Mamadou Tandja was raping the constitution ? and What are they doing now, there is fresh similar circumstance unfolding right in front of their eyes,and lips are tight, we say speak up for Djiboutian people now or forever…..
Finally the UN said the familiar statements that we have heard again and again
“we condemns the coup d’etat that took place in Niger” and “appeals for calm and for the respect of the rule of law and of the human rights of all Nigerians,” Ban’s office said
Africa marks 50 years of independence, unfortunately it never had true leaders, but there are a lot of proxy rulers of the former and new colonialist.
