10.02.14 @ 08:55


Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe is to attend the EU-Africa summit in April. Mugabe received a formal invitation despite being officially banned from visiting the EU since 2002 after being accused of a string of human rights abuses and corruption. The ban does not prevent him from attending international meetings.
