Chairperson of the African Union [AU], Dr Clarice Dlamini Zuma, is urging Africans to rededicate themselves to the continent and the ideals bequeathed to them by Africa’s founding fathers.
“As we commemorate Africa Day, let’s re-dedicate ourselves to Africa and to the ideals bequeathed to us by our Founding Mothers and Fathers,” she said in a series of tweets Wednesday.
She underscored the need for Africans to come together, explaining that such drive would facilitate Africa’s integration, unity and shared values of prosperity and bring about lasting peace for all.
Dr Dlamini said the Africa’s vision could be realised successfully if member States and other stakeholders work collectively.
Notwithstanding the many frameworks and policies formulated by the AU to achieve an inclusive, democratic and prosperous continent, she said, “many challenges still lie ahead to effectively ensure these critical norms and laws become a reality for our people”.
