PRETORIA - Regional foreign ministers gathered in Pretoria on Tuesday to discuss Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma's chances of winning Africa's top job at a continental summit in Addis Ababa next month.

Her campaign to become head of the African Union (AU) is based on regional and gender fairness.

Dlamini-Zuma lost the contest for the chair of the AU Commission against the incumbent Jean Ping in January.

The Southern Africa Development Communities (SADEC) endorsed her for a rerun of the contest in Addis Ababa later in July.

Foreign Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane said no African leader disagreed with SADEC's assertion that the region has never had anyone heading the commission and allegedly Dlamini- Zuma will meet AU gender requirements for the continent’s top job.

“We are here guided informed inspired by one goal, the unity of our continent.”
