SA ready for leadership summit in US

Washington - President Jacob Zuma has begun his three-day visit to the United States where he is leading the South African delegation to the US-Africa Leaders' Summit 2014 convened under the theme: "Investing in the Next Generation'.

The summit is expected to further strengthen ties between the United States and one of the world's most dynamic and fastest growing regions, Africa.

The high level engagement was announced during the official visit to some countries in the continent, including South Africa, by   President Barack Obama last year.

Spokesperson Mac Maharaj said in a statement that the summit provided an opportunity to promote increased co-operation on Africa-US trade and investment as well as co-operation on peace and security; infrastructure development and other key sectors.

South Africa sees immense value in the Power Africa initiative of President Obama and an opportunity in it to promote Africa's energy projects as part of the continent's important infrastructure development programme.

I am ashamed of the person representing my country. A guy with over 700 counts of fraud and corruption against him, limping from scandal to scandal and with no recourse. His party protects him at all costs to the detriment of all that live here. Thought I'll get that off my chest. Is he really the best we have to run our beautiful country??

Just shows that these clowns have no integrity! They say they want nothing to do with the capitalists ( the West ), but they will still go and beg for money! The same as the criminals begging for money at traffic lights from the very same people they hate and would kill at the drop of a hat!
