Mnangagwa behind the AU Summit


President Emmerson Mnangagwa and his delegation return from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, where he attended the 11th African Union Summit (AU).

Speaking to reporters shortly after his arrival, the President said he is on the way to developing a more flexible, efficient and business-friendly continental body.

"It was an extraordinary summit of the AU to address the reforms of the AU in order to address the current issues … like the economy. We also decided to reduce the size of the committee from 10 to 8 and introduced the concept of crop rotation, Commissioners now have to revolve between the regions, but of course on the basis of their value, "Mnangagwa said.

He appreciated the work done over the past two years, adding that Zimbabwe is in agreement with the decisions taken by African leaders to make the continent more autonomous in funding its programs.

President Mnangagwa met at the Robert Mugabe International Airport by two vice-presidents: retired General Constantino Chiwenga and Kembo Mohadi, State Security Secretary Owen Ncube, Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri, Defense and War Veteran, and the Heads of Service.
