Former African Union (AU) chairperson, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma says Africa needs to empower women into leadership positions and urged African countries to allow women to take presidential positions.
Dlamini-Zuma was speaking at Faith Gospel Ministries Church in Khutsong on Sunday under the theme 'Women in Leadership', accompanied by ANC Women's League by Bathabile Dlaminini, MKMVA chair and Deputy Defence Minister Kebby Maphatsoe, and local government Minister Des Van Rooyen.
The ANC Women's League has already publicly endorsed Dlamini-Zuma to succeed President Jacob Zuma when the governing party changes its leadership in December.
Political analyst and Talk At Nine host says this shows that Dlamini-Zuma belongs to the faction that supports President Zuma.
