The African Union has once again refused to appoint Sudan's President, Omar al-Bashir, as its Chairman. Compare this to 1975, when the AU's predecessor, the Organization of African Unity, appointed a murderous buffoon, Idi Amin, as its President.
We often complain that Africans need to stand up for better governance and for human rights. So full kudos to the AU for doing so.
