It was decided to honour the memory of the founders of this Day, in collaboration with the Romanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MAE), which graciously, offered their premises for the celebration. 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. Finally, Ms Nzuzi sang, a wonderful song of Ms. Makeba, to resounding applause.
