Highlights from 50 years of African unity
A woman at the head
In 2012, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma became the first woman to be elected President of the African Union U Commission- the highest rank in the AU. After her first 100 days in office, observers said that the former South African interior minister had set a new agenda for the AU. On May 25, 2013, the heterogeneous alliance of 54 states celebrates its 50th birthday.
