Ethiopia and Djibouti will be members for two years term.

The Council has fifteen members in tota. Five members serve for a five years term, while ten countries have only a two years term membership.

    Brief Comment, 8 Feb 2020
    Let us be HONEST. What do they do ? “Peace and Security Council” ha ha ha …. it is a joke.
    Let us be HONEST. What did the African Union [ 57 years old ] accomplish for the benefit of the ordinary African?
    Let us be HONEST. Do WE, as Black Africans, ever did anything to be proud of our accomplishment for the benefit of Africa?
    Let us be Honest: What is the DIFFERENCE between the so-called Modern Educated Africans [HOLDERS of top most 13 x 15 inch Paper Degrees] and down to earth Ordinary Down Trodden AFRICAN when it comes to elevating AFRICA for the benefit of AFRICAN PEOPLE in totality
    Let us be Honest: WE are the joke, the sneering, of the world.

    Ethiopia elected as African Union Peace and Security Council members, while its nations and nations are in a total diasaster.

    “Peace does not rest in the charters (like this made by corrupted leader like Abiy )and covenants alone. It lies in the hearts and minds of all people. So let us not rest all our hopes on parchment and on paper, let us strive to build peace, a desire for peace, a willingness to work for peace in the hearts and minds of all of our people. I believe that we can. I believe the problems of human destiny are not beyond the reach of human beings.” ~ John F. Kennedy
