SADC to Support Dlamini-Zuma for AU Post

Dlamini-Zuma is still SADC’s preferred candidate to head the Africa Union Commission

The Southern African Development Community (SADC) will be backing Home Affairs Minister, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, as its candidate to head the African Union (AU) Commission.

Angolan Foreign Minister, Rebelo Pinto Chikoti, points out that, "It’s going to be a campaign of all SADC member states, and we are going to work and convince others with all the strong arguments that we have."

SADC’s decision, taken at a meeting in Cape Town, comes barely two weeks after Dlamini-Zuma failed to unseat incumbent Jean Ping of Gabon at an AU summit in Addis Ababa.
