Botswana’s candidate for African Union Commission chairperson position Pelonomi Venson-Moitoi said Friday that one of her immediate priorities if elected would be to provide leadership towards rationalizing the needs and aspirations of the continental body with the minimal resources at its disposal. Speaking to journalists in the capital Gaborone, Venson-Moitoi said as the accountable official, it would be her privilege to ensure prudent management and utilization of the limited resources as contributed by Members States and development partners.

Furthermore, I am convinced that together we can build a stronger, more coherent and more effective and results-oriented AU, and present it as a high performance organization. To this end, it is imperative to have an efficient and effective AUC human resource with a rich inventory of skills necessary to develop innovative solutions and approaches for the realization of our common agenda,” she said.

She added: “It will be prudent to put in place targeted interventions to address any deficiencies in the efficient delivery of quality service, including capacity building measures to drive Agenda
2063.”

Venson-Moitoi believes that she has the requisite skills, competencies, experience that will catapult Africa’s transformation process, thus unleashing her potential to become an effective and influential player in global affairs.

“The support of all member States of the African Union will be most invaluable for my candidacy for the position of African Union Commission chairperson, as I trust that it will positively re-enforce ownership, commitment, attainment and implementation of the continental agenda and the realisation of the future we want,” said Venson-Moitoi.
