Africa too quiet on global issues – Rawlings

  |   Ghana News

Former President Jerry John Rawlings has in a meeting with former President of Cape Verde, Pedro de Verona Rodrigues Pires, expressed concern about the silence of the voice of Africa on global issues, describing it as ‘disturbing’. He said though there had been so many negative developments since the collapse of the bipolar world (East-West divide), Africa had remained too quiet.

“It helped to build and maintain a national conscience and morality. There is nothing, which prevents today’s leaders from making pronouncements condemning the Israel-Palestinian issue for instance. How do today’s leaders expect that there won’t be a decline within their nations in terms of the moral fabric of our societies?” former President Rawlings stated.

Meanwhile, former Cape Verde President Pedro Pires who is in Ghana to deliver a series of lectures at the University of Development Studies (UDS) paid a courtesy call on former President Rawlings at his office in Accra on Saturday.
