African nations have blocked moves in the UN to condemn the murderous practices of the governments of the Sudan and Zimbabwe.
"The African group remains unwavering in its total rejection of the country-specific resolutions within the UN," the South African representative, Pitso Montwedi, said.

He says that resolutions targeting individual countries run against the principles of "friendly cooperation" that underlie UN actions.
You could check that assertion against the voting record of African nations when the UN has condemned Israel. I don't think I'll bother just now.
