Both Zimbabwe and Uganda, the two countries President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is visiting, have something to offer.

Zimbabwe is also known for coziness with Libya, China & North Korea. Coincidence, I’m sure...

APRIL 2001 : (ZIMBABWE : UN SECRETARY GENERAL KOFI ANNAN'S SON INVOLVED IN COMPLETION OF HARARE AIRPORT) Even with Zimbabwe caught up in the kind of political strife that sees its own people starving, the contract to build the new Harare airport was going to make somebody rich. Estimated to cost Z$5 billion, by the time of its completion in April of 2001, the airport terminal had cost Z$7 billion.
Kojo Annan, Kofi’s youngest son, only 26 years of age at the time, served on the AHT board with [Hani] Yamani, with whom he was also negotiating the sale of two million barrels of oil in 2001, in the same timeframe the airport project was coming to an end.
In Harare, President Mugabe was being linked to the payment of unauthorized commissions during construction of the airport. As the project was about to wrap up, serious rifts were also developing between AHT, the main contractor and local representatives and government officials. Before it was over, the airport project had become a tale of cronyism that leached all the way back to over to Manhattan’s United Nations via Kofi Annan’s son Kojo, Mugabe’s nephew, Leo and Yamani, the jet-setting son of the famous and powerful former Saudi oil minister, Sheikh Ahmed Yamani. It all added up to a powder keg waiting for the strike of a match.

Yep...

While the international arena has paid scant attention to Zimbabwe while it struggles under the firm boot of Mugabe, Zimbabwe’s ruling party was in proactive drive with the Intelligence Agency of one Saddam Hussein.
Indeed, Hussein’s Intelligence Agency had a section dedicated solely to Zimbabwe, although thus far no one has ever been able to explain why. ———While Kofi Annan was ignoring Zimbabwe crisis, his son was building Harare’s airport, CFP ^ | January 8, 2005 | Judi McLeod, Posted on 02/08/2005 11:08:20 AM PST by MikeEdwards

Speaking of Uganda-

* Uganda, Iraqi diplomat FALLAH HASSAN AL RUBDIE & Allied Democratic Forces aka ADF :

BAGHDAD--Saddam Hussein's regime was linked to an African Islamist terrorist group, according to intelligence papers. The documents provide the first hard evidence of ties between Iraq and religious terrorism. Secret dossiers detailing the group's discussions with the Iraqi Intelligence Service were found in the spies' Baghdad headquarters, among the detritus of shredding. The papers show how an Iraqi diplomat in Nairobi, Fallah Hassan Al Rubdie, was in discussion with the Allied Democratic Forces, a Ugandan guerrilla group with ties to other anti-Western Islamist organizations. While the United States has long argued that Saddam's regime was aiding Islamist groups, it has struggled until now to provide evidence. ---------- "Papers connect Iraqi spies to African terrorist group," BY PHILIP SMUCKER AND ADRIAN BLOMFIELD, Chicago Sun-Times, April 18, 2003

Nick Berg, the cell tower-climbing American that Zarqawi decapitated in Iraq, spent some time in Uganda before 1999.
