Haiti becomes part of the African Union

haiti

Haitian Ambassador to South Africa, Jacques Junior Baril says Haiti finally being part of the African Union (AU) is a place that the country earned as they paved way to other African countries to be free today.

The Caribbean state of Haiti will officially become a member of the AU come the next AU Summit which will take place next month in Lilongwe, Malawi.

Former African Union chairman, Jean Ping said: “We have attachment and links to that country. The first black Republic…that carried high the flame of liberation an freedom for black people and has paid a heavy price for so doing.

In 2012, Haiti indicated its interest to move from its observer status to member status. It will be the first time any nation with no geographic connection to the continent of Africa to join the AU.
