The Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea, Agapito Mba Mokuy, left Luanda for his country, after paying a 24-hour working visit to Angola, marked by a meeting with the Angolan Vice-president, Manuel Domingos Vicente.
At Luanda’s “4 de Fevereiro” International Airport, the Guinean official, who did not speak to the press, was bid farewell by the ambassador of Equatorial Guinea to Angola, Jose Esono Micha Akeni, and other individualities.
Guinean diplomat’s visit aimed at calling on the Angolan support for its candidacy to the post of chairman of African Union Commission, in replacement of the South African Dlamini Zuma.
Nevertheless, the candidate Agapito Mba Mokuy was received in audience in Luanda by the Vice-president of Angola, Manuel Domingos Vicente, in the presence of the Angolan Foreign Affairs minister, Georges Rebelo Chikoti.
“Angola is sister country to which we call on support for our election to the post of chairman AU Commission”, said Agapito Mokui at the end of the meeting.
The candidates for the post of chairman of AU Commission are the ministers of Foreign Affairs of Botswana, Pelonomi Venson-Motoi, of Equatorial Guinea, Agapito Mba Mokuy, and of Algeria, Ramtane Lamamra.
