A letter circulating on social media shows the AU’s intention of separating with the Zimbabwean diplomat Dr Arikana Chihombori-Quao.
According to the Chronicles, the AU envoy to America was making repeated attacks on France’s colonialism.
Dr Chihombori-Quao, in June, 2019 during a televised discussion weighed in on “the pact for the continuation of colonization”.
The Zimbabwean diplomat expressed her unhappiness with how the sustained colonization by France is responsible for the siphoning off of $500billion from the African continent every year.
Dr Chihombori-Quao is reported to have been making similar attacks regularly ever since she was appointed two years ago to the post.
Dr Chihombori Quao was informed about her services no longer being needed by the AU in a letter that has been circulating on social media which reads in part:
I have the honour to inform you that, in line with the terms and conditions of the service governing your appointment as Permanent Representative of the African Union Mission to the United States in Washington DC, I have decided to terminate your contract in that capacity with effect from 1st November, 2019.
The move has been met with hostility and a petition to reinstate her has started circulating.
