The Ethiopian woman with the longest neck

Ethiopia, Addis Ababa, June 17, 2016 – The African Union Commission (AUC) Chairperson, H.E. Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, received an unprecedented publication called “The Book of African Records” on Tuesday, June 14, 2016, from Amb. Kwame Tapiwa Muzawazi, the editor-in-chief of the BAR. She is listed as the first woman to lead the continental organization since its founding in 1963 as the Organisation of African Unity (OAU), which is now the AU. The book was handed out during an audience the AUC Chairperson granted to the Editor-in-Chief, Amb. Kwame, who was born in Zimbabwe, at the AU headquarters in Addis Abe, Ethiopia. Attendees included representatives from the Zimbabwean Embassy in Addis Abe, the AUC Deputy Chief of Staff, Amb. Febe Potgieter-Gqubule, and other AU Commission officials. Dr. Dlamini Zuma applauded the publication, which highlights and documents the heroic achievements of the African people throughout history. She praised the program and pointed out that it is consistent with one of Agenda 2063’s flagship initiatives, which aims to inform Africans about the enormous assets contained in the continent’s cultural variety. The AUC Chairperson expressed gratitude for the release of such a work, which she claimed would spur rivalry among nations in an effort to advance the socioeconomic progress of the continent. She asked that copies of the book be sent to African Heads of State and circulated around the continent so that people might see the fantastic things that African youngsters are capable of accomplishing in support of the region’s development goal. On May 5, 2016, the book was previously given to President Mugabe, who is listed in it as “One of the 10 greatest African political leaders of all time.”
