R22m to AU for Dlamini-Zuma

2013-10-23 14:33

The South African government will be giving an extra R22 million to help African Union Commission chairperson Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma run her office.

In the mid-year budget review, tabled by Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan today, R22 million was given to the AU Commission’s office of the chairperson.

This money came from funds reallocated from the African Renaissance Fund.

This is on top of the R162 million South Africa contributes to the African Union.

Asked about the allocation during a press conference in Parliament this morning, Gordhan did not elaborate, but merely said the extra allocation was part of South Africa’s contribution to the AU.
