KIGALI (The Southern African Times) – A successful African Union and European Union ministerial meeting is a testament to the two parties resolve and determination of bringing an end to Covid-19, which has ravaged every aspect of our lives and reversed some of the progress we had made as human-kind.
The Deputy Chairperson of the African Union Commission Monique Nsanzabaganwa, made the remarks while addressing over 500 participants who are currently in Kigali for the summit.
Nsanzabagabwa said that since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, the world as we know it, has changed rapidly, with far-reaching consequences we are still trying to ascertain.
“I would like to stress the importance of our partnership with the European Union for the development trajectory of our continent especially within the context of the Covid-19 pandemic.”
Indeed, she said, Africa would require all the necessary support from its closest partners and allies to bounce back and build forward better from the damaging consequences caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
