President Michael Sata is expected to be among 75 African rulers who are scheduled to attend the 21st Africa Union (AU) Summit which opened on Sunday and runs up to the 27th of May 2013, in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
This year’s theme is ‘’ Pan –Africanism and African Renaissance’’.
The AU itself has no presence or impact on African people but is just a platrom for African leaders to meet and exchange ideas on how to rig elections, witch-craft and steal from their own people.
The AU kicked off on Sunday the 21st of May with the 26th Ordinary Session of Permanent Representatives Committee (PRC) which is discussing items on the agenda in preparation for the AU Summit. This will be followed by the 23rd Ordinary Session of Executive Council from the 22nd to the 23rd of May. All these discussions achieve nothing apart from per diem for officials.
Ordinary sessions of the AU Summit are usually held twice a year – in January and July – but this Summit has come in May just to coincide with the Celebrations of the Golden Jubilee of the Pan African Organisation which will take place on the May 25, the Africa Freedom Day, the day the Organisation of Africa Unity (OAU) was established.
According to the programme released by the AU Commission, the celebrations will take place on May 25, Africa Freedom Day, with a grand debate on ‘’Pan-Africanism and African Renaissance”. There will also be festivities at the Millennium Hall in Addis Ababa which will be open to the public.
The OAU was established in 1963 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Zambia joined the OAU in 1963 but upto now is still depending on Europe, USA and China for money.
Meanwhile the 21st Ordinary Session of Assembly of the African Union is scheduled to take place on the 26th and 27th of May, 2013.
