The much anticipated election showdown for the chairmanship of the African Union Commission, (secretariat of the Union), dubbed "David versus Goliath", did not turn out to end in the same way as that Biblical encounter had ended.
The question really is whether Africa could continue to allow European hegemonic influence to play a major role in how the continent positions itself as both of these two candidates possess a wealth of experience that should be the determining factor and not whether they are supported by France as had been rumored about Jean Ping or NATO as was rumored for Dlamini-Zuma.
