Ramaphosa delivers closing remarks at AU Mid-Year Coordination Meeting

Published on

AU Chairperson, Cyril Ramaphosa delivered the closing remarks at this year’s Mid-Year Coordination Meeting, but appears to have overlooked the current unrest on the continent.  

Cyril Ramaphosa, in his capacity as the Chairperson of the African Union (AU), on Thursday, 22 October 2020, delivered the closing remarks at the second Mid-Year Coordination Meeting. During his address, Ramaphosa reflected on the outcomes of the union’s previous meetings.

According to the statement shared on his address, Ramaphosa maintained a focus on issues relating to COVID-19, stating, “Your contribution has made this virtual session highly engaging, informative and interactive, as we seek to accelerate the implementation of our programmes towards the attainment of the Agenda 2063. We have been able cover a range of issues on regional integration, division of labour and our continental strategy to overcome COVID-19.”

However, a matter that appears to have not been addressed is the topical unrest in various parts of the continent, particularly in Nigeria, which has made headlines across the globe. Despite mounting calls from the world to intervene, the AU has yet to address the instability.
