China-Country Must Close Ranks – Speaker Gurirab

“The world belongs to us all, not only them,” commented National Assembly Speaker Theo-Ben Gurirab, criticising what he called NATO and the European Union (EU) “flexing their muscles everywhere in the world militarily and economically and using massive intelligence and security projections worldwide trying to have their way”.

Addressing a Chinese delegation to Namibia headed by vice chairperson of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress (NPC), Hua Jianmin, Gurirab added: “We must resist.”

He said under the “guise of human rights, military intervention and regime change have replaced dialogue and peaceful co-existence in the world”.

And, he said, Africa has once again become “their playground and might-makes-right type of arrogance of power has become an everyday activity”.

“Africa is divided and new forms of horse trading and bribes are undermining solidarity and common purpose among some of our leadership across our common borders. The United Nations itself is divided on the crucial priorities of its charter. The African Union has all but lost its united voice, it seems,” Gurirab said.

Moreover, said Gurirab, south-south cooperation is severely challenged.

“China and Namibia must remain loyal to history and also firmly close ranks in our common pursuit of unity, mutual support and targeted economic and technical cooperation,” he stressed.

    Any coincidence that Gaddafi was a strong supporter and helper to the AU?

    As usual: Namibians talk the talk while carefully avoiding to walk the walk!
