Raila Demands Apology from the US

Former premier Raila Odinga on Saturday demanded an immediate apology from the US President Donald Trump over his racial slur in which the American leader labelled  African nations and Haiti as s**thole countries.

In a statement sent to newsrooms,the NASA leader described Trump’s remark as troubling and unfortunate and called upon him to “unequivocally” apologize.

“The remarks made by President Trump are part of a growing habit by a president who has never missed an opportunity to bully and disparage particularly poor nations,” the statement,seen by Citizen TV, reads in part.

According to Mr. Odinga, the remarks are deeply hypocritical as they conveniently ignore the fact that US corporations have pitched tent in the same African countries that Trump has insulted and are making billions of dollars which they send back to their country.

“Recent media reports indicate that President Trump views Africa as a market for US goods and services and is keen to slow down on issues of democracy and human rights in pursuit of trade in Africa. Africa cannot be a market and a nothing at the same time,” the statement reads.

“Mr. Trump must equally be reminded that many of the poverty and governance related problems that keep Africa down result directly or indirectly from US foreign policies and interference,” the statement reads.

He urged other African leaders to stand up for Africa’s dignity and follow suit by demanding an apology from the US head of State.

President Trump,however,has since denied making the racial comments.
