RX Radio Olive: African Leaders only care about Pan Africanism when it suits them

RX Radio Presenter Olive Najjuma has criticised African leaders for double standards concerning state sovereignty and Pan Africanism.

Olive noted that most African leaders are puppets of the international bodies and governments and are willing to follow any orders given to them as long as it does not affect their political agendas.

“Most African leaders are ready to jump to orders from let’s say World Health Organisation (WHO), United Nations (UN) among others because they know that’s where the money comes from but when the same bodies try to intervene in issues concerning human rights abuse, election fraud, that’s when they start fighting back, telling them to leave African issues to Africans. They only care about Pan Africanism when it fits their interests” Olive said on Wednesday’s The Fatboy Show.

In a conversation with her Show co-host James Onen a.k.a Fatboy on why African States continue to follow orders and draconian restrictions from WHO concerning SOPs regarding Covid-19, Fatboy had urged African States to put the interest of their citizens at the forefront of the fight against Covid-19.

Recently WHO recommended that governments continue to impose strict SOPs to prevent the spread of Covid-19 cases that seem to be coming back in big numbers after a slow down in the last few months.

“Economies are struggling, people’s businesses are crumbling and if the government is to continue imposing these strict measures and the curfews until the end of year like WHO recommended, the common people will continue to struggle. Why can’t our governments make their independent decisions on these, why do we have to follow these international organisations that don’t even understand the issues of our common people?” he asked.
