Obama to visit Ethiopia, African Union in July



US President Barack Obama will in late July become the first sitting American leader to visit Ethiopia and the headquarters of the African Union, the White House said Friday.
Obama's trip to Addis Ababa will come directly after an already announced trip to Kenya, his first as president to his father's homeland, press secretary Josh Earnest announced.
Obama will meet both the Ethiopian government and AU leaders, for talks on how to "accelerate economic growth, strengthen democratic institutions and improve security."
The election of the United States' first black president -- and the first with an African parent -- raised high hopes on the continent, but Obama has been a cautious friend.
In August last year, the White House hosted a huge Washington summit of African leaders and the upcoming July trip is intended to build on progress towards closer economic ties.
A presidential visit to Kenya had been put on ice while President Uhuru Kenyatta faced charges of crimes against humanity for his role in 2007-2008 post-election violence.
The International Criminal Court has since suspended that prosecution, citing a lack of evidence and Kenya's failure to cooperate.
Human rights groups have questioned the visit to Kenya, but are also asking why Obama is visiting Ethiopia so soon after a contested election.
Africa's second most populous nation held a vote in May that was described by many independent observers as flawed.
The governing party, which has ruled for over two decades, won a landslide, amid opposition allegations of intimidation and vote rigging.
"The decision by President Obama to travel to Ethiopia, which has seen three opposition party members murdered this week alone, is very troubling," Jeffrey Smith of the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice & Human Rights told AFP.
Smith said the timing, and the symbolism of Obama's trip, would "further solidify the image that America stands behind Africa's autocrats."
The White House stressed that it frequently addresses issues of democracy and political rights with countries in the region.
"We regularly, both in public and in private, communicate our concerns about some of the issues," White House spokesman Eric Schultz said.
"I don't think that is going to stop because of this visit."
Ethiopia and Kenya have both been on the frontline of the fight against Somalia's Al-Qaeda-allied militia Shebab, and have been important security partners to Washington.
Shebab units have been hunted by African Union troops and US drones inside Somalia -- but have outflanked the Kenyan contingent in Somalia to mount a string of gruesome cross-border raids.
In April last year the group attacked a university in Garissa, Kenya killing 148 people -- most of them students.  Source ( AFP)

Charleston Church Shooting: Suspect Dylann Roof Captured in North Carolina



The 21-year-old white man suspected of having gunned down nine people at a historic black church in South Carolina, was back in Charleston Thursday after a sweeping manhunt that spanned two states.
Dylann Roof was caught after 11 a.m. ET following Wednesday night's massacre at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. He was arrested about 245 miles north in Shelby, North Carolina, during a traffic stop, Charleston Police Chief Gregory Mullen said at a news conference.
Shelby police received a tip about a suspicious car in the area and arrested Roof without incident, Mullen added.
"I am so pleased that we were able to resolve this case quickly ... so that nobody else is harmed by this individual who obviously committed a tragic, heinous crime in the city of Charleston," Mullen said.

President Robert Mugabe spared no punches at the African Union summit in South Africa this weekend. He took jabs at South Africa and Nigeria for “betraying” Africa by signing the UN Security Council Resolution of 1973 in 2011, which approved military action against slain Libyan leader, Muammar Gaddafi.
He told the summit that Africa would never agree to the two countries getting permanent seats on the council as they had betrayed the continent’s trust.
According to Independent News, Mugabe was speaking at a meeting of the ‘Committee of 10′ which was discussing possible changes to the Ezulwini Consensus – an agreement stating Africa’s position of reform within the UN Security Council. South Africa was also calling for the agreement to adopt a more flexible approach as the rigid demands were causing problems in seeing reforms in the council.
South African president is quoted to have said last year: “Africa needs to compromise – not reiterate fixed positions as it has done for the past nine years.”
But, according to one regional official who was at the meeting, Mugabe’s lashing out at South Africa and Nigeria would seriously hamper impede South Africa’s case for amending the consensus.  Source (Independent News)
