Muslim World

Former Malian President and head of the African Union delegation to Egypt, Professor Alpha Oumar Konaré described President Mohamed Morsi as the “Nelson Mandela of Egypt”, stating that the AU has not altered its position of rejection of the coup. During its visit to the Rabaa Al-’Adawiyya sit-in on 1 August, the delegation confirmed that it visited Dr. Morsi for two hours.  They said it was a good visit, and stated their intention to visit him again, to which President Morsi replied “You are welcome at any time.”

The leader of the delegation stated they had met many people in Egypt, and were invited to visit the sit-in, and “it was not appropriate except to attend, and it was necessary to attend.”  The leader affirmed that this was their first meeting, that they would return once more, and that they would prepare a report for the AU and the African Peace and Security Council.

Regarding the nature of the delegation’s work, Konare said they were in Egypt on a fact-finding mission, and that they were sympathetic to the victims, martyrs and injured who fell in the last massacres. He affirmed his awareness of the peaceful nature of the Muslim Brotherhood’s work, saying “We know the Brotherhood’s history very well.”  He pointed out that he saw numerous marches and the Rabaa sit-in which was peaceful.
