More than 130 Head of Missions and International Organisations responded positively to the invitation, which was hosted by the newly appointed Minister of Foreign Affairs, Professor Andrei Marga, who stressed in his opening speech that Africa was a strong point in his agenda.
Then, Ms. Nzuzi from the DRC who is also a famous presenter on a Romanian TV Channel, delivered a persuasive message dedicated to the important role played by African women for the development of the society, mentioning names such as Winnie Mandela and Miriam Makeba, who was South Africa’s First Lady of song and, who deserved, according to Ms. Nzuzi, the title of Mama Africa.
