Sisulu leads SA team at SADC Ministerial Meeting in Angola
Lindiwe Sisulu says Lesotho has expressed gratitude to South Africa for sending retired deputy chief justice Dikgang Moseneke as a facilitator.
PRETORIA - Minister of International Relations and Cooperation Lindiwe Sisulu is in Luanda on Friday heading South Africa’s team at the Ministerial Meeting of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) organ on politics, defence and security cooperation.
Angola currently heads the organ that looks at stability, public safety, corruption, immigration justice and prisons.
Sisulu says Lesotho has expressed gratitude to South Africa for sending retired deputy chief justice Dikgang Moseneke as a facilitator.
“It shows South Africa’s commitment to making sure that we’re continuing with our responsibility as a facilitator and everybody is happy with that.”
The SADC ministers in the engine room in the regional grouping are focusing on political and security developments in Madagascar, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Lesotho.
In recent months, these have been regarded as the three troubled spots in Southern Africa.
The ministers will hear progress reports on the implementation of SADC decisions and matters related to the consolidation of democracy in the region.
