UNOAU Speaks to Rwandan Ambassador to Ethiopia and Djibouti
The Ambassador of Rwanda, Mrs Hope Tumukunde Gasatura sat with UNOAU for an interview. Ambassador Gasatura is one of the four women ambassadors who are members of the African Union Peace and Security Council (AUPSC). This interview sought to highlight the role of women in Africa's peace and security through their engagements in high level decision making platforms such as the AUPSC. Speaking about her tenure as the monthly chair of the AUPSC earlier this year in February, Ambassador Gasatura recalled how important it had been to table issues that affect children and women in Africa. Along with the other female ambassadors involved in the AUPSC, including the ambassador of Botswana, Kenya and Zambia, Amb. Gatsatura noted that more needs to be done to increase the number of women in the AUPSC. Similar interviews have been conducted with all the ambassadors and will feature in the next issue of UNOAU buleltin.
