UN Movement on Mugabe. Why?

The NYT reports that the UN has come out forcefully against the "eminent domain" practices of Robert Mugabe in Zimbabwe.

They report:

The United Nations on Friday condemned the mass destruction of urban slums and shantytowns in Zimbabwe by the government of President Robert G. Mugabe as a "disastrous venture," saying the policy had left 700,000 people homeless and created a "humanitarian crisis of immense proportions."In a toughly worded report, the United Nations demanded that the activity be stopped immediately, that compensation and assistance be arranged for victims and that the leaders of the campaign be prosecuted.

Did this unusual pronouncement by the UN against an action by Mugabe have anything to do with the criticism heaped upon the organization by the U.S. Congress and conservative media? Was it something Et Tu Bloge said?

No, we shouldn't approve John Bolton as ambassador, should we?
