Former Nigerian president Olusegun Obasanjo has blamed Zimbabwe for allegedly setting a bad precedent of coups in Africa.

This is after late former President Robert Mugabe was ousted in 2017, a move which was sanitised and packaged as a bona fide means of replacing unpopular regimes outside the ballot.

After addressing the Pan-African Parliament in Midrand, Johannesburg South Africa, Obasanjo said Africa must find a way out of the toxic culture.

Obasanjo said he once moved a motion that any country that achieves change of government through unconstitutional means should be suspended.

He believes punishing governments that rise through coups would help curb the ill.

Mugabe was toppled through a military coup d’etat led by Army General Constantino Chiwenga and was replaced by Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa.

Africa and the world at large embraced Mnangagwa’s administration.
