Mugabe invited to Togo

Faure Gnassingbe (L) end Robert Mugabe

Togolese President Faure Gnassingbe arrived in Zimbabwe yesterday to invite African Union chairperson President Mugabe to chair the continental body’s forthcoming Maritime Security and Development conference to be held in Togo’s capital Lome in November. 

Mr Gnassingbe held a two-hour meeting with President Mugabe at State House in Harare where they discussed the forthcoming conference and bilateral issues.

Briefing journalists soon after the meeting, Mr Gnassingbe said the conference was set to benefit immensely from President Mugabe’s wisdom. “Under his chairmanship, the AU has accepted to organise a conference on Maritime Security and Safety. “The conference on Maritime Security and Safety relates to issues of piracy that have become a serious problem for Africa,” said Mr Gnassingbe speaking through an interpreter.

“There is a problem of piracy, illegal fishing, drug trafficking, human trafficking, arms trafficking, pollution of our waters in our seas. “This conference will take place in Lome, Togo from November 1 to 7 this year. “And during this conference, we will also talk about the issue of illegal immigrants from Africa to Europe. It has actually become a burning problem especially in countries in West Africa. I have said to President Mugabe that I will be happy to welcome him at this conference, that he can chair this conference so that he can use his wisdom for the success of this conference.”
