The Pan African Parliament (PAP) on Wednesday, adopted a motion to pay tribute to the late former President of Zimbabwe, His Excellency, Robert Gabriel Mugabe moved by Hon. Jaynet Kabila and seconded by Hon. Haidara Aichata Cisse and Hon. Jacquline Amongin.
Moving the motion, Hon. Kanila recalled that the late Robert Mugabe was a fervent Pan Africanist who defended his country in particular and Africa in general on the world stage. “This is an honour well deserved as a legend in the African continent. We need to celebrate his memories as a Pan Africanist who is well deserving of the honour” said Kabila.
“He loved his country and declared education as a fundamental right which has placed Zimbabwe as one of the countries with the highest literacy rate in Africa”.
Seconding the motion, Hon. Jacqueline Amongi noted that the late Mugabe not only brought independence to Zimbabwe but became the source of inspiration to all the other African countries who were struggling for emancipation from white minority rule such as Namibia and South Africa.
Supporting the motion, the Fourth Vice President of PAP, Hon. Chief Fortune Charumbira who is a Senator from Zimbabwe, stated that he was “humbled by the contributions of members” who spoke in support of the motion, especially the sponsor, Hon. Jaynet Kabila and the two parliamentarians that seconded the motion, all of whom he noted, are not even from Zimbabwe. Charumbira noted that the late Mugabe supported and encouraged women participation in both politics and business and then called on the United States of America, Britain and the European Union to immediately  lift the economic sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe.
After the motion was unanimously adopted, the President of the Parliament, Hon. Roger Nkodo Dang then announced that Committee Room 2 is hereby named after Mugabe.
