Saharawi’s Ghali tells tale of ‘colonialism’

New Era, May 29, 2018, by Albertina Nakale

WINDHOEK – Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic President Brahim Ghali yesterday relayed his disappointment to President Hage Geingob over the United Nations (UN) and international community’s inability to solve the last colonial issue in Africa.

Ghali said in dealing with the Western Sahara conflict, both the political organs of the UN and its secretariat have been leaning towards Morocco’s interests instead of complying with their obligations under the UN Charter and the requirements of international legality.

The Sahrawi independence movement and Morocco have been fighting over Western Sahara since 1975, when the former colonial powers withdrew from the region without organising a referendum for the Sahrawi people, leaving the issue unresolved to this day.

“We are disappointed in the United Nations because they adopted certain plans in September 1991. They were planning for a referendum but up to now we are still waiting for this promise to be implemented.

We hope the new UN secretary general [António Guterres] and his personal special envoy will continue to bring efforts to finish this last case of decolonisation in Africa as entrusted by the UN General Assembly,” Ghali remarked. Please, click here to continue reading....
