President Robert?Mugabe on Wednesday?took a dig at his in-laws??country, Ghana.
?I have been to Ghana?1958 to 1960 and when you?look at them now and compare?their present situation?to that [which] existed in the?1960s, no change.?There?might be more people. Yes.?There may be one road from?the airport, which has been?well done so that people?who visit the country think?everything is ok,? he said.
Mugabe also ascribed?the festering Ebola pandemic?on the Continent ? mostly?in Sierra Leone and Guinea?to their colonial ties with?France.
He said it showed that?Europe did not have?Africa?s interests at heart.
?That?s about all, no?change. There are still areas?where not all children go to?school, big countries and?you wonder why? It?s?because they have remained under the control?of countries like France,?European countries like?that,? he said.
He said most French?colonies had remained?dependent on their former colonisers due to the agreements?they signed when?they attained independence?and had no control over?their natural resources.?So?those countries are not free.
What is now very important?but an absolutely discouraging?development is?that the leaders we get now?are not of the same calibre?as vana (Kwame)
Nkrumah, vana Seko?Toure, vana Modibo Keita,?vana (Abdel) Nasser, no.
They are all ?yes leaders??because they expect help,?money from European
countries,? he said.
