Former chairperson of African Union Commission, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, has reportedly said that women are capable leaders, adding that “the bahaviour of one woman should not be allowed to taint all women”.
According to a report published on SABC, Dlamini-Zuma said this while dismissing suggestions that Zimbabwean First Lady Grace Mugabe’s alleged assault was a blight on women aspiring to lead.
She said that women were human beings and like anybody else, some were bound to make mistakes “just like man do”.
She said: “Whether one beats another … it is wrong and the law must take its course … but women are capable … they cannot be judged on that.”
Grace was accused of assaulting a South African model Gabriella Engels on Sunday and was pleading for diplomatic immunity.
