Organization of African Unity (OAU) was established in May 1963, at Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The Charter of the Organization was signed by Heads of State and Government of 32 independent African States. Its purposes are:

  • To promote the unity and solidarity of the African States;
  • Defend the sovereignty of members;
  • Eradicate all forms of colonialism;
  • Promote international cooperation having due regard for the Charter of the United Nations and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights;
  • Coordinate and harmonize Member States economic, diplomatic, educational, health, welfare, scientific and defense policies.

interesting map.... Mandela made them famous. Take a moment to visit the website of the African National Congress (ANC). The ANC is the majority party in the South African Government. It came to power after the first democratic elections in April 1994. It majority was confirmed in the national elections on 2 June 1999. The ANC was founded in 1912 in response to the formation of the Union of South Africa in 1910, which ignored the wishes of the majority of the people of South Africa. For 30 years - from 1960 to 1990 - the ANC was declared a 'banned organization' and was forced to operate underground. Its leadership was either jailed or forced to live in exile. The ANC has a long history of fighting white domination and has committed itself to building a new South Africa through the Reconstruction and Development Program. The ANC is the senior partner of a tri-partite alliance consisting of the ANC, the Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU) and the South African Communist Party (SACP).
