AU falls silent on big problems as Kenya lobbies for top job
It is clear that President Uhuru Kenyatta is determined to put a word to African leaders that Foreign Affairs CS Amina Mohamed is best fit for the African Union Commission chairmanship. I wish her well because she is qualified and she has worked in various international organisations, including the UN. She is also well educated in both diplomacy and law fields. However, even during this lobbying period, why is the AU silent on various problems in Africa? Is Dlamini Zuma still incharge? Its main objective is to drive the African integration and development process in close collaboration with African Union members. In doing so, there should be peace. Unfortunately,there is uncertainty about DRC’s electoral process, Zimbabwe’s protests, Gabon’s post-election skirmishes and political violence in South Sudan that the commission should highlight and offer the way forward.
