Mnangagwa back from AU summit



President Emmerson Mnangagwa and his delegation returned from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, where they attended the 11th African Union (AU) summit.

Speaking to reporters shortly after arrival, the president said it is a work in progress to develop a leaner, more efficient and more business-friendly continental body.

"It was an extraordinary AU summit to deal with the AU reforms to address current issues such as the economy. We also decided to reduce the size of the commission from 10 to 8, and introduced the concept of rotation, the commissioners themselves must now run between regions, but of course, based on merit, "Mnangagwa said.

He appreciated the amount of work done over the last two years, adding that Zimbabwe is in tune with the decisions made by African leaders to make the continent more self-sufficient in funding its programs.

President Mnangagwa was received at the Robert Mugabe International Airport by the two vice presidents: retired general Constantine Chiwenga and Kembo Mohadi, State Security Minister Owen Ncube, veterans defense and welfare minister of Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri and heads of service.
