An ambitious Africa - Venson-Moitoi's candidature for AUC

8 July 2016

Recognizing that Africa’s population is dominated by young men and women who contribute immensely to the rise of Africa through their creativity, passion, knowledge and determination, Dr Pelonomi Venson-Moitoi, the Southern Africa region candidate for the position of The Chairperson of the African Union Commission (AUC) states “My vision of the AUC is an organisation that seeks to deliver real results, pursues common objectives and envisions an integrated, people-centred and prosperous Africa which is at peace with itself.”

Venson-Moitoi has thrown her hat into the ring together with fellow Africans Dr Specioza Naigaga Wandira Kazibwe, from Uganda and Agapito Mba Mokuy, from Equatorial Guinea for the top African position which will be contested in Kigali, Rwanda on the 17th and 18th of July 2016.

Venson-Moitoi currently serves as Botswana’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation. Her political career spans 17 years holding various cabinet portfolios including Transport and Communication, and Tourism among others having entered Parliament in 1999.

She has made contributions in the private sector as an editor, CEO and founder of Venson Consultancy, a capacity building consultancy in governance and administrative systems and procedures.

Her qualifications, merits and awards including her Masters of Science in Administration are credentials most worthy of the position. She has led trade and investment missions, rallied strategic partners and cultivated a wide network of key decision makers including politicians, business leaders, donor agencies and media practitioners.
