AU summit opens with launch of African e-passport

18 July 2016, 10:34

Kigali - African leaders on Sunday gathered at Rwanda's capital Kigali for their biannual meet with the launch of the continent's first-ever African e-passport.

The Chairperson of the African Union Commission (AUC) Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma announced the launch and presented the first two e-passports to rotating AU chairperson Idriss Deby, President of the Republic of Chad, and President of Rwanda Paul Kagame at the opening ceremony of the 27th ordinary session of the AU Heads of States.

According to AU, the first group of beneficiaries of the e-passport will include AU heads of state and government; ministers of foreign affairs; and permanent representatives of AU member states based at the AU Headquarters in Addis Ababa.

The two-day summit is themed; "2016: African Year of Human Rights, with particular focus on the Rights of Women", but African leaders are largely expected to discuss a wide range of topics particularly peace and security, in the wake of a deadly violence that erupted in South Sudan between forces royal to two rivaling political camps.

A new AU commission will also be elected to replace the one led by Dlamini-Zuma since 2012.
