Deputy Speaker, I move without notice
That the House -
1) notes that the Zimbabwean President, President Robert Gabriel Mugabe, has been elected as the chairperson of the African Union, AU, which represents 54 countries;
2) acknowledges that President Mugabe is a former liberation war hero and is viewed with deep respect by many on the continent and abroad;
3) notes that in his acceptance speech, President Mugabe called for African countries to improve infrastructure, tackle climate change, conflict in Africa and the Ebola challenge;
4) further notes that, similarly, he said that Africa's vast agricultural potential should be harnessed by ensuring that the people of Africa gain access to the land on which so many depend;
5) congratulates President Mugabe on his appointment;
6) commends and applauds his steadfast refusal to budge under the pressure of imperialist forces to go down without resolving the fundamental grievance, that is, the land question;
7) congratulates him again for encouraging African unity and the return to the core principle on which the African Union was formed;
8) encourages President Mugabe to lead a massive land expropriation programme throughout Africa for the benefit of the African masses;
9) further encourages the AU to advance with great speed the development of the African economy through protected industrial development to create millions of sustainable jobs; and
10) encourage AU member states to develop strong state capacity to advance our generational mission for economic freedom in our lifetime.
In the light of the objection, the motion without notice may not be proceeded with. The motion without notice now becomes a notice of motion on the Order Paper.
