Press Release
US Has No Morally Authority to Impose Friend or Enemy to Africa

The US is imposing on the African continent its colonial and hypocritical Act in attempt to cripple Russian influence and isolate and destabilize its invasion in Ukraine.

Through ‘The Countering Malign Russian Activities in Africa Act’ that was adopted by US the House of Representatives, US seeks Africa to stop engaging with Russia making sure that its sanction is implemented in the continent.

By the above mentioned Act that the US directed and imposed on the African continent via US Secretary of State to identify in Africa local actors complicit in Russian Activities whereby US may seek to punish those actors in a manner that it deems fit, including through sanctions and in any other way as decided by the US.

The South African Development Community (SADC) organisation protested against these US measures in the recent 42nd Ordinary Summit of Heads of Government in Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of Congo where it adopted a communique that castigated, expressed dissatisfaction and protest against this US law against Russia, terming it as being unfairly targeting Africa for unilaterally punitive measure.

It is an open shame and vivid double standard to the US that is working hard to point a finger and discredit Russia for its Ukraine invasion, forgetting itself of its invasion and occupation in Iraq, Afghanistan and other lands, killing thousands and rampant looting. Also the US is always complicit with the Russian invasion and killing of Muslims in Syria because it is in line with its policy against ideological Islam and killing of Muslims.

The real issue is neither US nor Russia are friends of Africa, while the US does not satisfy from exploiting African huge wealth and resources, it is also using political and legal means like this to smooth the way of its foreign policies, capitalizing of ideological weakness of the continent.

Also, Russian interest in Africa is merely driven for economic exploitation since it has embraced capitalism after abandoning communism, highly engaging in armaments and military equipment deals constitutes more than 50 per cent of its trade with Africa. The trade between Africa and Russia reached US $17.4 billion in 2017.

The US with its colonial and capitalist agenda has no moral authority whatsoever to select and impose a friend or enemy for Africa, instead Africa needs fair ideology of Islam under its Khilafah (Caliphate) State to liberate itself from all sorts of humiliation from US and all capitalist nations.
