Johannesburg - Former South African home affairs minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma has held her first meeting as chairwoman of the African Union Commission, the AU said on Wednesday.

Dlamini-Zuma told the commission on Tuesday that her administration would work on improving effectiveness, internal and external communication, resource mobilisation and gender equality.

She said the AU did a lot for the continent but not many people knew about its achievements.

"Only when they [African citizens] know the union, will they support it. Not enough about the AU is known," Dlamini-Zuma said.

She also pledged that her leadership would continue to hold regular meetings with staff to ensure that everyone in the commission knew what was going on at all levels.

The meeting was held at the AU conference centre in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Dlamini-Zuma said the AU made gender equity a key principle when it was formed in 2002.

"This decade has been declared the African Women's Decade, so it will be important to pay special attention to gender equity during the decade and beyond," she said.
