SADC leaders have rejected the U.S proposed “countering malign Russian activities in Africa act”

In 2022, The Southern African Development Community (SADC), during its 42nd Ordinary Summit of Heads of State and Government held on 17 and 18 August at Parliament Building, vehemently expressed their collective opposition to a proposed United States law on countering Russian influence and activities in Africa.

According to the statement posted to its website, the 16-member regional bloc complained that the United States has made the African continent “the target of unilateral and punitive measures” and its Senate’s Foreign Relations Committee pushed the bill designed to stop President Vladimir Putin using Africa to bypass US sanctions and fund his war in Ukraine, as well as to protect African people from human rights violations by Russian mercenaries.

Just yesterday South Africa’s Defence and Military Veterans Minister Thandi Modise has hit out against the United States for trying to bully African countries from doing business with Russia. And said the bill should be rejected by all African leaders.
