Africa | Zimbabwe July 3, 2017

As the African Union, AU, deliberates at the ongoing 29th Ordinary Session Of AU Assembly in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, about among other things, how to fund its budgetary programs on its own instead of current dependency on foreign financial donations, President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe donated to the continental bloc $1 million out of the money he reportedly raised from selling his own 300 cattle. Mr Mugabe said that the donation was a humble gesture he hope will trigger AU to move towards financial autonomy. _______________________________ © 2015 - 2017 Africauptodate. All Rights Reserved
