First Female African Union Leader



Congratulations and well wishes are pouring in for newly elected chairperson of the African Union, South African minister of home affairs, Dr Nksosazana Dlamini-Zuma after a victorious third round win over Gabon's incumbent Jean Ping.



Dlamini-Zuma is the first female chairperson of the African Union ever since its inception in 1963 from its predecessor, the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) as it is formerly known. 

Her election comes as living proof that the African Union can very well be led by a woman and things are about to change after the failure of the AU intervention on humanitarian crisis. Being a no nonsense leader and human rights fighter, Dlamini-Zuma's track record speaks for itself; she gets things done. This is liberating and empowering to all young African women on the African continent and the Diaspora. Its about time women took the lead, well, I'm saying this from a feminist point  view :-) yes, you guessed right. Viva feminists! :)

All the best Dr. - your achievements are a bowl of inspiration to many young African women. Let the hard work begin.
