Zimbabwean president, Robert Mugabe, on Monday handed a cheque of $1 million to the African Union (A.U.) Foundation as part of efforts aimed at lessening the body’s dependence on foreign aid.

The 93-year-old formally handed over the cheque to the A.U. Commission (AUC) chairperson, Moussa Faki Mahamat, on the floor of the AU headquarters during the 29th Heads of State summit in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa.
 The state-owned Herald newspaper reported that the amount had been raised from the sale of cattle donated by Zimbabwean farmers following an appeal by Mugabe to help the A.U. self fund its operations.

“As a farmer and an African, donating cattle which is a sign of wealth, comes naturally,” Mugabe said during the donation.

 The issue of financing its own activities has been prominent in the A.U’s recent agenda and came up strongly a year ago during the 27th Assembly of Heads of State and Government in Rwanda.
