UN: Egypt’s delegate calls fellow Africans ‘dogs and slaves’

Egypt has landed itself in hot water after its envoy to the recent United Nations Environment Assembly in Nairobi described sub-Saharan African nations as “dogs and slaves”.

Details of the incident have emerged after Yvonne Khamati, chair of the Africa Diplomatic Corps, wrote a memo on May 29 to the dean of the body requesting that Egypt be barred from representing Africa in any official capacity until it issues an apology.

“We feel that these uncivilised, racist, discriminatory and vindictive utterances do not advance the vision of the 2063 African Agenda and the Pan-Africanism that was advocated by the founding fathers of the African Union,” Khamati said in a press statement.

“This issue should be raised to the Permanent Representative Committee in Addis Ababa, New York, Vienna, Geneva and subsequently to the Heads of State summit to be held in Kigali, Rwanda in July 2016,” she continued.
