HARARE, Feb. 11 (Xinhua) -- The following are the highlights in Zimbabwe's major media outlets on Monday:

-- The 32nd Ordinary Session of the African Union Assembly kicked off Sunday with Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa challenging member states to equally share the burden of funding the continental body and wean it off the donor dependency syndrome.

Mnangagwa also bemoaned reports of mismanagement of resources at the continental body, suggesting stiff punishment for offenders. (The Herald)

-- Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa on Sunday met Estonian President Eesti Vabariigi and the two leaders discussed economic cooperation.

Estonia is arguably the most digital society in the world as the former Soviet republic launched electronic governance in 1997, digital ID in 1999 and electronic tax in 2000. E-governance enabled Estonia to improve the competitiveness of the state and the well-being of its people. (The Herald)

-- The European Union (EU) has told Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa that the bloc would only consider extending aid to his government if the Harare administration met certain conditions that include respect for human rights and holding of credible elections.

This followed Mnangagwa's meeting with the EU commissioner for international co-operation and development, Neven Mimica, on the sidelines of the African Union summit in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on Saturday where the two discussed developments in Zimbabwe, including the recent military crackdown on fuel protests, which left 17 dead.
