Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe has blasted Nigeria and South Africa at the AU Summit for agreeing with the UN Security Council Resolution 1973 in 2011, which authorised military action against the regime of Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi, IOL reports.
He reportedly stated that the two countries had betrayed the continent which could never trust them.
He said as a result Africa would never agree to them getting permanent seats on the UN Security Council.
Mugabe intervened in a meeting of the so-called “Committee of 10” at the summit on Saturday which was discussing possible amendments to the “Ezulwini Consensus” .
The “Ezulwini Consensus” stated Africa’s position on reform of the UN Security Council.
