Addressing the meeting on the Rule of Law in the United Nations General Assembly Hall in New York, President Sata urged Africans to “stand up and be counted”.
President Sata recalled that since the League of Nations up to today, Africa is more of a spectator than a participant. He observed that Africa has no permanent members in the Security Council and yet the continent represent 54 members in the House.
He said there cannot be talk of the rule of law when there is no respect for each other. President Sata urged all Africans to stand up and be counted. The League of Nations was the forerunner of the United Nations.
