RIP Kofi Annan

Kofi Annan, the first black African to become UN secretary-general, has died aged 80 in Switzerland, his aides say.

He "passed away peacefully on Saturday after a short illness", the foundation named after him said on Saturday.

Mr Annan served two terms as UN chief from 1997 to 2006, and was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize for humanitarian work for his efforts.

Probably the most dignified man in the world.

I think the UN has wasted away and become a bloated unworkable toothless organisation, but still have massive respect for Kofi Annan.

Rest In Peace.

I believe he was an honest man in a world of con men, frauds and scoundrels, who tried his best to improve things, can't say fairer than that. RIP
