Surprise (for real): UN official criticizes African politicians

"We cannot turn a blind eye to corruption, nepotism and tyranny," Ms. Migiro told the opening ceremony of the Africa21 conference called to discuss challenges facing Africa in the 21st century.

Um, actually I think that is what the UN does every day. But I digress...

"We cannot allow the will of the people to be thwarted by electoral fraud and constitutional changes of government or manipulation of the law to keep vested interests in power," said Ms. Migiro, who did not mention any leader by name.

Just for fun:

This is Chantal Biya, First Lady of Cameroon. So many things to comment on; the hair, the nails, the earrings - is this where the UN's money is going?
