    • Africa and the Corrupt UN Security Council

      Africa and the Corrupt UN Security CouncilNot long ago, Rodrigo Duterte, president of the Philippines, threatened to leave the UN (using some very insultive words and calling president Obama the "son of a bi*ch") and the media went wild on him for that statement.

    • Africa and the International Criminal Court

      Africa and the International Criminal CourtBurundi, Gambia and now South Africa have officially notified the UN Secretary-general of their intentions to leave the International Criminal Court (the ICC) and from the look of things, many other African countries may follow suit. Why are African countries abandoning the ICC? Well, it is because of “fear” and “distrust”. The ICC came on the scene in 1998 as a way to pursue some of the world’s worst atrocities: genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity. In other words, the ICC was to...
