That old colonial mindset

The Zimbabwe Pundit:

“Pan Africanist writer Baffour Ankomah, irked by the constant delvings of western ambassadors in Africa, wants to know what Africa’s diplomats in the West are doing that is comparable. He writes:

“I don’t understand why Western ambassadors and their subsidiary diplomats in Africa are free to pronounce on, and many times even interfere in, African domestic affairs whilst African ambassadors and diplomats in the West never ever open their damn mouths about the internal affairs of the Western countries in which they serve. Why? Is it a case of colonial hangover? Shivering in the presence of the Master?”

Who said the Empire was dead?
