Dlamini-Zuma left the African Union headquarters in Addis Ababa earlier this week following the end of her four-year term as chairperson.
Tadiwos Belete has told Eyewitness News they believe Dlamini-Zuma is the most qualified to take over from President Jacob Zuma.
Belete has shown EWN pictures of him and Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, saying she spent a lot of time at his luxury resorts.
“She is a good supporter of our property here and has been here many times. They had many meetings here.”
According to Belete, the business community in Africa is rooting for her.
“She’s a very strong lady and I’m sure she will do every well. She is most qualified and I hope she makes it in South Africa.”
He says he plans to expand his businesses to South Africa and wants to assure Dlamini-Zuma that the business community in this country is ready to help her with whatever help she needs to ascend to the top position.
Meanwhile, the former AU chair has been endorsed locally by the ANC Youth League and ANC Women's League, among others.
ANCYL President Collen Maine said the organisation had 'big plans' for Dlamini-Zuma, set to be revealed at party's policy conference in June.
