NGOCC tasks new au commission to tackle daily issues affecting african such as conflicts


The Non-Governmental Organization Coordinating Council (Ngocc) Has Tasked The New Chairperson For The African Union Commission Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma To Tackle Issues Such As Poverty, Education, Health And Good Governance During Her Term To Show That Women Can Perform If Given A Chance.

The African Union Has Chosen South Africa’s Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma As Its Leader, Making Her The First Woman To Hold The Post.
Ms Dlamini-Zuma, The Former Wife Of South African President Jacob Zuma, Won The Leadership Of The Au Commission In A Third Round Of Voting After She Beat Incumbent Jean Ping Of Gabon In A Closely Fought Contest For The Chairmanship Of The Organization.
Ngocc Board Chairperson Beatrice Grillo Says Africa Is Currently Faced With A Number Of Critical Issues Which The New Chairperson Should Focus Her Energies On Like Poverty Reduction, Good Governance And The Un Ending War Situation In Countries Like Somalia.
Mrs. Grillo Says The Un Ending Conflicts In Countries Like Somalia Needs The New Chairperson To Use Her Skills Properly And Work With Other Leaders Both Past And Present For Counsel Purposes.
She Says Mrs. Dlamini-Zuma’s Election Is A Land Mark Victory To The African Women And This Has Shown That Women Are Capable Of Taking The Mantle From Men And Perform Accordingly.

Meanwhile The Out-Going Chairperson Of The African Union (Au) Commission Dr Jean Ping Says He Has Done His Best To Serve The People Of Africa As Head Of The Pan-African Organization.
Dr Ping Who Has Just Lost His Bid For Re- Election As Chairperson Of The Au Commission To South-Africa's Home Affairs Minister Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, Says He Has Played His Part And Now Takes The Back Seat After Leading The Organization For The Last Four Years.
Speaking During The Closing Ceremony Of The 19th Au Summit In Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, Dr Ping Congratulated Dlamini-Zuma For Winning And Becoming The First Woman To Head The Au Commission.
The Au Heads Of State And Government Summit Ended Yesterday And President Michael Sata Was Represented At The Meeting By Foreign Affairs Minister Given Lubinda
