Kenya wants to suspend Mugabe

The Kenyan government thinks Robert Mugabe should be suspended from the African Union:

Kenyan PM Raila Odinga has urged the African Union to suspend Robert Mugabe from the bloc until he allows free and fair elections in Zimbabwe.

I’m in favour of this, but I can’t help thinking it would be better if he was suspended from a rope.

    Newsflash…Zimbabwe has had free and fair elections for years. Its a pity you dont do alittle fact checking, before you parrot main stream media propaganda:

    ‘Zimbabwe Elections Free And Fair, Says Tonchi
    Posted: Wednesday, April 6, 2005

    THE head of the Electoral Commission Forum of Southern African Development Countries’ observer mission to Zimbabwe, Victor Tonchi, has given his blessing to that country’s elections, declaring them free and fair.

    Tonchi led an 11-country observer mission to Zimbabwe and said the mission was encouraged by the “peaceful environment” in which the election took place.

    “The mission hereby records its satisfaction with the high level of compliance with regulations and election rules which was displayed by the electoral staff at all stations visited,” said Tonchi, who is also Chairman of the Electoral Commission of Namibia.

    Tonchi’s teams observed the opening procedures and voting and counting at 65 polling stations in 28 constituencies.

    Next time, do a little research on Zimbabwe.

    It was criticising the ‘suspended from a rope’. Sorry, but murder is crime. You may like to ask yourself why Rwandas Kagame is not suspended from a rope:

    along with the person who shut down the ICTR investigation into the assassination of rwandas president Juvenal Habyarimana and the president of Burundi, Cyprien Ntaryamira.

    I sent another, and it too has gone into the memory hole. Could it be the content was offensive?

    What happened was that they were automatically filtered as spam. I’ve just now looked in the spam filter and marked thme as not spam.

    I don’t know why Akismet thought they were spam; maybe because they included hyperlinks.
