That racist Muammar Gaddafi:
Libya: Gaddafi Urges Africa To Say ‘No’ To False Western Aid
KAMPALA, MARCH 18 — Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi urged all African governments yesterday to reject all Western aid which came with conditions, and deemed the democratic standards that the world powers want to impose as incompatible for the world’s poorest continent.
Gaddafi is visiting Uganda to address an Afro-Arab conference of 5,000 youths from Arab and African states, and to formally open a huge new mosque in the capital Kampala.
“They colonised us and now they’re coming with their aid. Any aid with conditions should be rejected,” the Libyan leader told cheering crowds through an interpreter. “They give you their aid and dictate that one should adopt electoral democracy, that one must adopt multiparty systems. All these work in the West, but not in Africa,” Gaddafi said. (ANSAmed).
