Yes, my Lords, the AU and the NePAD communiques contain important elements relating to human rights, good governance and peer review. NePAD is an African-led initiative. It is an inclusive initiative, not an exclusive one.

Yes, it is up to African leaders to put pressure on other African leaders in relation to these elements.
