Ethiopia - African Delegates accuse Meles Zenawi of shortchanging Africa
As the high level segment got underway, sharp divisions emerged between African leaders. Delegates are accusing Ethiopian Prime minister Meles Zenawi of doing an underhand deal with developed countries to short change Africa. NTVs Pamela Asigi reports on the latest twist and what it means for the continent.
“If Prime Minister Meles wants to sell out the lives and hopes of Africans for a pittance, he is welcome to, but that is not Africa’s position,” said Mithika Mwenda of the Pan African Climate Justice Alliance.
“Ten billion dollars will not buy developing countries’ citizens enough coffins,” Mr. Di-Aping [Sudanese diplomat and leader of G77] said bitterly last week
"I appreciate what Prime Minister Zenawi says, but I do not agree with most of it. May be because we seem to be on a different wavelength" Senegal's President
"I know my proposal today will disappoint some Africans. My proposal scales back our expectation with respect to the level of funding in return for more reliable funding," Meles Zenawi
Meles Zenawi's logic seems to be take what you can and run all the way to the bank. What do you think? Is Meles being a sell out or pragmatic politician? Have Your Say
