Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma: South Africans you are African too

In a sit down interview with Azania, African Union Chairperson Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma implores South Africans to remember that they too are African.

Because South Africa was isolated from the rest of Africa because of apartheid for so long, we almost lost the fact and that understanding that we are part of this continent ...

African Union Chairperson, Nosazana Dlamini-Zuma

Dlamini-Zuma carried on to explain that in dealing with the issue of xenophobia in South African officials would need to address the issue with a programme that addresses the problem at it's root rather than an event the country speaks to each time there is a series of attacks on foreign nationals.

The Chairperson of the AU also explains that we need to start thinking about immigration in a different way - that an Africa with free borders is a future that all African nations should aspire to.

Of course if you come to think about it, if I know that I can go to Rwanda and come out and go without a Visa - I am unlikely to hide when I'm there, and I'm unlikely to go there illegaly - because there is no reason to do that because I can go without a Visa.
