ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia, January 17, 2013/African Press Organization (APO)/ – The Commission of the African Union (AU) and the Confederation of African Football (CAF) have partnered to promote peace across Africa during the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa. This year also marks the 50th Anniversary of AU’s predecessor, the OAU, and has been declared the year of “Pan-Africanism and African Renaissance”. The slogan of CAF during the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, “Celebrate Africa”, aptly defines this important milestone and captures the mood in South Africa ahead of the tournament’s kick off.
