AFRICAN EDITORS AND PRESS OFFICERS HOLD JOINT MEETING IN PRETORIA MONDAY

African Union (AU) Commission Chairperson Dr Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma will host a joint sitting of the Africa Editors’ Forum and Press Officers here Monday under the theme, “Deepening Africa’s Narrative and Capacities to Deliver Agenda 2063”.

This is the first time South Africa will host the joint sitting of up to 80 editors from across the continent as well as press officers under the AU banner. The previous meeting was held in Rwanda alongside the AU Heads of State Summit earlier this year.

Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma will address the forum for the last time as Chairperson of the African Union Commission and give African Editors an opportunity to engage with her as she concludes her four-year tenure.

The two-day meeting will take place at the Government Communication and Information System head office in Pretoria.

The main objective of discussions is to reflect on AU milestones over the past four years, create a better understanding of Agenda 2063, the continent’s 50-year development master plan from 2013 to 2063, discuss the role of African media in popularising Agenda 2063 and assessing the role of accurate reporting in shaping an African narrative and advocate media ownership among Africans.
