Scoop #1

The article "Robert Mugabe Shrugs Off Concern About New African Role", is about the new African Union chairman who is none other than Robert Mugabe. Mugabe has had lots of trouble (including a travel ban) with the West (Europe and America) due to his political violence and intimidation. So once he was appointed the new chairman, the West were worried. However, Mugabe is admired and respected by many people in Africa, mainly because he is Africa's former liberation war hero and third-longest server. He hopes to raise the standard of living for his people and to raise the sanction his country is in. Furthermore, he expresses his ideas about the empowerment of women in Africa, saying men and women are equal.

 

This article helps me understand the strain in the relationship between the West and Africa. It really relates to what we are learning about now and how before, Africa and Europe had a trading relationship, but then Europe got greedy and everything turned bitter. In this case, Africa has appointed Robert Mugabe as the new African Union chairman. Robert Mugabe is not trusted by the West so the relationship between Africa and the West would be full of mistrust and doubt. In both cases, there was something that made things go wrong. My personal opinion on this is kind off neutral. Since I don't really know about Mugabe, I can't really judge. But if his people admire him deeply then he must have done something right. I think the whole mistrust and politics thing is unnecessary. If they just dropped it and started over, things would be so much more simple. I also especially liked  what Mugabe said about how there were things men can do that women can't, and things women can do that men can't. It really showed how we need men and women to balance things out.

8A Ye Rim Park's curator insight, February 5, 4:15 PM

The article is about Robert Mugabe, the oldest president of Zimbabwe, who has concerns that his appointment as new African Union chairman would badly affect relations between the pan-African bloc and the West. Robert Mugabe said that he doesn't care what West says, and that his business was to ensure the decisions they take are implemented.

This article helps me to understand Africa because Robert Mugabe is quite an influential person in Africa, which gives me lots of clues of Africa while learning about him

I think that Robert Mugabe is a great president, even though he is old I think he still has great discernment. I am really surprised that Robert Mugabe was 90, my grandfather is about 75 years old and can't really do anything because of his age.


 

Fanny Kay's curator insight, February 5, 9:59 PM

WHO: Robert Mugabe, new chairman of the African Union


WHEN / WHERE: February 1st 2015


WHY: This article is quite factual, simply reporting the sayings of the new chairman. He expresses views concerning international diplomacy, notably with 'the West', so Europe and America which shows a desire for independence and a resentment for the tone adopted by the West, that tires to "control (Africans) and control (African) ways", according to him. 


WHAT: The report commences with Mugabe's statement regarding foreign judgment. He makes it clear that he cares not of it, and that unless the West is prepared to treat the African continent as an equal with whom they cooperate, instead of someone inferior who they could "control", then they and their opinion would not be welcomed.It is later noted how the hostility between the chairman and the West further expresses himself, such as for example travel bans to the US and the EU. Finally, Mugabe discusses equality of the sexes in Zimbabwe with questionable political correctness, saying with pride how far female empowerment has come in the work place. This article lacks comments and interpretations of facts, though the factual information it does give lets the reader more or less weave an interpretation of their own.
