South Africa, Zimbabwe Back Botswana's Candidate For AU Top Job

Published
There are several other candidates fielded for the position of AU chair - although at this stage it looks like Kenya’s Amina Mohamed is the favourite. That can change, depending on the lobbying done these next few months. Kenya had earlier claimed that South Africa supports Mohamed's bid, but earlier this week President Jacob Zuma and Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe said they're supporting the SADC candidate, Botswana's Foreign Affairs Minister Pelonomi Venson Moitoi. Equatorial Guinea's candidate is also still in the race. That's Foreign Minister Agapito Mba Mokuy.
