Good Day :Zuma, the Third Part of Her CV!
A new part of the CV of the Zoologist and Politician, Nkosazana Dlamini (Zuma) has been inaugurated now. As we said before, the CV of the possiblesuccessful candidate for the presidency of AU commission could be divided into two parts; the first part is from "birth to divorce" and the second part is from "divorce to AU election 2012", the rounds of January and July. The third part of her CV could have the title; Nkosazana, the President of AU Commission, the most important position in Africa and the AU. The big and promising role of AU has created the new value of the commission. Nkosazana (Zuma) when she was running for the presidency of AU commission and battling against Mr. Jan Ping, it was obvious that she is a powerful and charismatic leader and many people were expecting that she will succeed, or at least she will fight till the bitter end to finish Mr. Ping and to hold his hand going together out of the lines of the race. Zuma is backed by her country South Africa and the bloc of Southern Africa but she started to contact other countries from other regions and there were rumors of "good promises"!
However, Zuma 63 years old now is the African Bionic woman "Black Thatcher"! The indicators of her success started very early. In 1970s she was a member of the South African Students Organization and was elected as its deputy president in 1976. During the same year she fled to her exile in Swaziland; she worked there as a specialist in a hospital where she met her "future husband" at that time and her "ex-husband" later, the current president of SA Mr. Jacob Zuma. Many things happened after that and at last in 1998 Nkosazana Dlamini (Zuma) divorced from Jacob Zuma. The political struggle with her ex-husband shaped her life for more that twenty years. In the Jacob Zuma's cabinet her last post has been the Minister of Home Affairs till she reached recently the AU Commission.
For sure Dlamini – Zuma has its own history and character but after the divorce the new independent Zuma appeared as a strong leader who has strong stance against corruption and mismanagement. Then she appeared as a regional icon and a person who can lead the strongest Sub-Saharan Economy. Congratulation Zuma but it is worth mentioning that South Africa is one of the "Big Five" in the African Union. The "Big Five" are paying 80% of AU budget; South Africa, Algeria, Libya, Nigeria and Egypt. There was a gentleman agreement between the big five donors that no one of them shall run for the presidency of AU Commission. South Africa is first one of the Big Five that broke the big promise. Zuma and her ex-husband have to explain and justify urgently!
