South African Home Affairs Minister …

South African elected first female AU Commission head

ADDIS ABABA (Reuters) - South African Home Affairs Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma was elected on Sunday to become the first female head of the African Union (AU) Commission, ending a bruising leadership battle that had threatened to divide and weaken the organization.
Cheers broke out at the AU's soaring, Chinese-built steel and glass headquarters in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa as supporters of the ex-wife of South African President Jacob Zuma celebrated her victory over incumbent Jean Ping of Gabon.
"We made it!" a grinning Zimbabwean delegate shouted, reflecting the strong support Dlamini-Zuma's candidacy had received from fellow members of the Southern African Development Community(SADC). Ping, who had served in the AU post since 2008, was largely supported by French-speaking African states.

In America, her getting into office would have been the same as voting Clarence Thomas into office or Newark's Cory Booker or Henry Louis Gates!!

... Gonna have to call you on that one, lol... You are talking about a Zulu woman, with very few blemishes to her credit. She's known for her unsmiling demeanor.

Please support your uncle Tom portrayal of Dr. Nkosazana Diamine-Zuma.



Peace In,
