Says Africa must set up own ICC

While seeing off President Keita of Mali after his three-day state visit to Zimbabwe, Mugabe says fellow African heads of state should form its own criminal court to bring to justice those Western leaders who he says have committed “serious war crimes and crimes against humanity…particularity during the colonial era” in Africa.

They committed crimes, colonial crimes galore—the slaughter of our people and all that imprisonment, I have a case. Why was I imprisoned for 11 years? We forgave them, but perhaps we’ve not done ourselves justice … You set up the ICC, we set our ICC to try Europeans, to try Mr. [George] Bush and Mr. [Tony] Blair.

resident Keita agrees:

[It is] up to Africans, not Europeans or Americans, to judge their leaders.
