One of South Africa’s most outspoken political firebrand, Jackie Shandu, says the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) is a conceptual fraud and an antiquated toothless dog.
Shandu made the comment on Monday after “following NAM deliberations in Uganda,” which he characterized as a platform for old, useless and ineffective sloganeering.
The 19th NAM summit was held in Uganda where President Yoweri Museveni officially assumed the chairmanship of the gathering for the next three years.
“Non-Aligned Movement is a conceptual fraud and an antiquated toothless dog. Nobody is non-aligned in the current white supremacist global hegemon led by US-UK-EU warmongering white nationalist alliance, fighting to crush the indispensable emergence of a multipolar world,” Shandu wrote on his X account.
The NAM Summit, born at the climax of the national liberation movements in Asia, Africa and Latin America, seeks to advance the cause of world peace and human progress. Heads of State and Government and high-ranking representatives from more than 100 countries, and heads of international organizations attended the summit.
Heads of State from Zimbabwe, South Africa, Sri Lanka and other countries; the president of the UN General Assembly, and the UN secretary-general Antonio Guterres delivered speeches, expressing their views on the current international situation.
NAM leaders adopted the Kampala Declaration where they agreed to strengthen the unity and cohesion of the movement as a political force in the global arena, so as to push back unilateral actions made against international law.
