The sacking of Dr Arikana Chihombori has raised numerous questions on who really is in control of AU. Given that she is a staunch outspoken about Africa’s current predicaments and the origin of them related to former colonial powers who today still exploit this continent in form “aids” and blackmail. Dr Arikana Chihombori doesn’t shy away to mention their roles in Africa (France, UK, Belgium).
Chihombori-Quao shot to fame when she demanded that former colonial powers, like France, return artefacts of 14 African countries that they have held since the 1960s.
A letter from African Union chair Moussa Faki Mahamat to Chihombori-Quao, dated 7 October, has been published online.
It’s understood Chihombori-Quao received no explanation for her sacking.
It’s easier to trace the origin of the directive to sack her.
