Can one not be forgiven for having a feeling of déjà vu? Zimbabwe and the European Union are set to reactivate dialogue expected to explore ways of normalising relations between the two sides that soured in the last decade after Zimbabwe embarked on its land reform programme to address colonial land ownership imbalances.

The African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) group of States has challenged European countries to ensure the natural resources they get from Africa are translated into developing the continent. ACP-European Union (EU) Joint Parliamentary Assembly co-president David Matongo said the engagement between Europe and the ACP should move to a new level of trying to deliver sustainable development for Africa.

Euro MP Thijs Berman today criticised East African governments for their lack of policies aimed at rural populations and called on the EU to prioritise food security in its development strategy. More than 10 million people are affected by a severe drought in Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, Uganda and Djibouti and up to 12 million will be affected in the coming months, according to the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), the World Food Programme (WFP) and Oxfam.
