Africa a shithole: Botswana summons USA ambassador

Botswana has condemned USA president Donald Trump and summoned the USA envoy in Gaborone for saying African countries as ‘shitholes’.

(CNN)The African Union, a group representing the continent’s countries, issued a blistering statement demanding that President Donald Trump retract and apologize for comments referring to African nations as “shitholes.”

“The African Union Mission wishes to express its infuriation, disappointment and outrage over the unfortunate comment made by Mr. Donald Trump, President of the United States of America, which remarks dishonor the celebrated American creed and respect for diversity and human dignity,” the African Union mission to the United States said in a blistering statement.

Condemning the comments “in the strongest terms,” the group demanded “a retraction of the comment as well as an apology, not only to the Africans, but to all people of African descent around the globe.”
