Luanda — The president of South Africa, Jacob Zuma, said Wednesday in Luanda he has shared with his Angolan colleague, José Eduardo dos Santos, serious matters concerning the African continent, Angop learned.

Speaking to journalists at Luanda's "4 de Fevereiro" International Airport, after the audience with his local counterpart, he added they thought it was a good idea to share views about serious matters concerning the continent, ahead of the African Union Summit set for January 21-28.

According to Jacob Zuma, after the fall of the Lybian leader, Mohammar Kadafi, the situation in Africa took various twists, in an allusion to the situation in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Central Africa Republic and Mali.

To the South African president, there seems to be a tendency of armed groupings to turn against Governments and later become a rebelion, which is an attitute that is worrying and must be dealt with.

He said he informed the Angolan head of State on matters discussed recently at the summit of the troika held in Tanzania, dealing with the situation in Madagascar and the progresses recorded in Zimbabwe.
