AFRICAN PRESIDENTS CONGRATULATE XI JINPING OVER RE-ELECTION.

Published

on

African presidents including the heads of state of Uganda, Nigeria, South Africa and Nigeria congratulated the Chinese president upon his re-election, even as political analysts remarked that China’s life presidency project would be welcomed in many African countries.

Xi Jinping unanimously re-elected by the country’s parliament on Saturday, which thereafter also voted to amend the constitution to remove presidential term limits, meaning Xi can stay indefinitely.

Life presidency projects are the subject of fierce debates and violent protests in many African countries including Uganda where the ruling party recently lifted the age limit that would have prevented president Museveni from standing for a sixth straight term as president.

The Ugandan president was indeed one of the first African leaders to congratulate Xi Jinping and commit to continued economic and diplomatic ties.

Kenya’s Uhuru Kenyatta also touted the re-election as a demonstration of the Chinese people’s confidence in Jinping’s ‘vision and wisdom in the governance of China and international affairs’.

The Nigerian president, in a letter, also praised the Chinese leader for his wisdom and vision.

“On behalf of the Government and people of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, I congratulate you most sincerely on your re-election as the President of the Peoples Republic of China. Your re-election is an indication of the trust and confidence reposed in you by the people of China on your ability to bring your vision and wisdom to bear in the conduct of national and global affairs,” Buhari is quoted to have written.

Many other African and world leaders have been congratulating the Chinese leader and reaffirming their commitment to bilateral ties with the global trade superpower.

The Russian president, Vladimir Putin who won the presidential polls in his country over the weekend was also congratulated by leaders including Egypt’s president Abdel Fattah el – Sisi and Cameroon’s Paul Biya.

DR Congo Ministry of Health spokesperson Jessica Ilunga has declared that violence and community mistrust have continued to hamper all efforts to control and end the fresh Ebola outbreak, which started Aug. 1.



Though according to the World Health Organization the number of new Ebola cases has dropped slightly in the Democratic Republic of the Congo as there are 33% fewer cases to date in February compared with the same time period in December per STAT’s Helen Branswell, but some experts warn Axios that there remain signs that this outbreak is far from over.

Meanwhile, some experts warn that, that doesn’t mean the world’s second-largest Ebola outbreak on record is yet under control, and in fact it could simply be moving to new areas of the sprawling country.

Johns Hopkins’ public health expert Jennifer Nuzzo maintains there are several reasons people should continue to view this outbreak as a cause for concern.

However, Nuzzo said Congo needs more than money from the international community and the U.S. in particular. Safety concerns have largely caused the CDC to limit its Ebola experts to the capital city of Kinshasa, where some have returned after being evacuated during an uptick in election-related violence, Nuzzo added that Now is the time for the U.S. to send them into the field.
