ADDIS ABABA Andre Burakovsky Capitals Jersey , Oct. 21 (Xinhua) -- Officials of the three pan- African institutions, the African Union (AU) Commission, the UN Economic Commission for Africa (ECA), and the African Development Bank (AfDB) will visit Ebola-affected countries in West Africa.

As the AU Commission heightens its response to the Ebola epidemic, the Chairperson of the AU Commission, Nkosazana Dlamini- Zuma will travel to the West African sub-region to assess the situation firsthand, said AU in a statement on Tuesday.

The Chairperson will be accompanied by Carlos Lopes, Executive Secretary of UNECA, and Donald Kaberuka, President of AfDB, according to the statement.

Dlamini-Zuma and the delegation will visit Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia, during which the Chairperson is expected to meet with all the Heads of State and Government of the affected countries to express solidarity and to get an appreciation first hand of the issues on the ground, said the statement.

Dlamini-Zuma's delegation will meet with the President of Ghana, John Mahama in his capacity as Chair of the Economic Commission of West African States (ECOWAS), critical issues aimed at accelerating the fight against Ebola, as well as measures needed to alleviate the socio-economic consequences of the disease outbreak.

She will continue to press on for more support from AU member states, said the statement.

Dlamini-Zuma last week wrote to African Heads of State and Government appealing for more medical volunteers to assist with the dire needs to stem the epidemic that is fast becoming a major threat to Africa's peace and security and socio-economic development.

"We remain committed and in solidarity with our sisters and brothers in West Africa to put the Ebola epidemic under control," said the Chairperson.

"We commend the ongoing continental and global efforts, but frankly, a lot more needs to be done to raise the needed resources considering the magnitude and rate of increase of the epidemic. The continent must mobilize the human resources needed as a matter of urgency," she added.

The Chairperson's visit to the region follows an earlier visit by the AU Commissioner for Social Affairs, Mustapha Sidiki Kaloko, to affected countries and to Ghana two weeks earlier, recalled the statement.

In addition to the emergency meetings of its Executive and Peace and Security Councils creating the AU Support to Ebola Outbreak, and the providing financial assistance, the AU has deployed medical volunteers to Liberia and Sierra Leone, said the statement.

Deployment to Guinea will follow soon, it added.

RIO DE JANEIRO, June 8 (Xinhua) -- Brazil President Dilma Rousseff said Monday there was "no reason" to suspect kickbacks were used to secure the country's right to stage the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Her comments come amid allegations that hosting rights for the 1998 World Cup in France and 2010 World Cup in South Africa were influenced by bribes.

Media reports also claimed that Germany sold arms to Saudi Arabia to secure its vote for the 2006 World Cup.

"There is no reason to begin any corruption probe into the decision to award the 2014 World Cup to Brazil," Rousseff told France 24.

Rousseff's comments come almost two weeks after seven FIFA officials were arrested on corruption charges as part of a US prosecution indicting 14 people.

Among those detained was former Brazilian football confederation president Jose Maria Marin.

Brazilian prosecutors have already launched their own investigation into claims of widespread graft in the local game. A congressional inquiry led by striker-turned-senator Romario is also probing the allegations.

Investigators have so far focused on accusations that Brazilian officials accepted kickbacks for a national team sponsorship deal and the Copa do Brasil.
