The African Union will mull a divisive bid by Morocco to rejoin the bloc at a summit next week where stagnating South Sudan peace efforts will also top the agenda. The AU's 54 member states will gather in Addis Ababa Monday for a packed two-day meeting in which they will also have to elect a new chairperson – after failing to do so at a summit six months ago.The membership of affluent Morocco could also be a boon for the AU, which lost a key financer in late Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi and has long sought financial independence.Rwanda's President Paul Kagame has been tasked with overhauling a lumbering bloc weighed down by bureaucracy, and is set to present his first report on suggested reforms during the summit.A 4,000-strong regional protection force mooted at the last AU summit has been mired in delays and disputes as South Sudan's government insists the force is no longer needed.
