[18 July 2012] Should Africans support Iran in the face of western economic imperialism - English Kenya, Tanzania, Sierra Leone and a host of African nations have been threatened with sanctions if the import oil from Iran. Some of them rely on Iranian oil because of the flexibility in payment. In Tanzania, Iranian embassy and a shipping agent in Dubai had to assure the country that no Iranian ships have been re-flagged to dodge sanctions to import oil to the East African nation. Kenya has cancelled plans to import crude oil from Iran following threats of sanctions, an official at the Kenyan energy ministry has said. The outline deal signed last month was to import about 4 Million tonnes of oil from the Iranian National Oil Company. But the US embassy in Nairobi had warned it was important to cut revenue to the Iranian government.
