UN invites Mugabe to hunger debate.
Africa: This would make sense if the UN is trying to figure out the best way to starve people, then Mugabe is your man.
|Critics of the Harare regime are appalled that the UN's Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO), whose mission statement is "helping to build a world without hunger", invited Mr Mugabe to address a conference in Rome marking its 60th anniversary. Tony Hall, the US ambassador to the UN food organisations in Rome, said: "My government is excited about the FAO event which is organised to remind people about hunger. "However my feeling is we shouldn't be inviting someone who has absolutely turned his back on the poor in his own country. He has made a mockery about the hungry and everyone should be upset about this."|
