Dr. Sam Nujoma calls for pressure on Morocco to comply with international legitimacy

Havana, October 1, 2016 (SPS) - The great African activist, Dr. Sam Nujoma, has called on the international community to exert more pressure on the Kingdom of Morocco in order to comply with the legitimacy, condemning the Moroccan intransigence and its refusal to hold a free, fair and transparent referendum on the self-determination of the Sahrawi people.

At a ceremony held Friday in Havana by the Organization of Solidarity with the People of Asia, Africa and Latin America (OSPAAAL) to honor the first president and father of the nation of Namibia in “El Mehdi Ben Barka” Order of Solidarity, the African leader has reiterated its support for the Sahrawi people in their just struggle for freedom and independence.

The historical leader of the Organization of the People of South West Africa (SWAPO) deplored the non resolution of the question of Western Sahara, the last case of decolonization in Africa.

He also thanked the Cuban revolution for continuous and unconditional support for the struggle of the African peoples and movements for freedom and independence. (SPS)
