Kenya joins regional peace initiative

31 January 2014, 13:56 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Kenya has sought to enhance peace both within its borders and regional counterparts by signing the Peace, Security and Cooperation Framework (PSCR) for the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Great Lakes Region.

President Uhuru Kenyatta, while announcing that Kenya had joined the initiative, said that it was prudent that the country, being one of the biggest economies in the region, be at the forefront of enhancing security.

The president was speaking during the 3rd meeting of the Regional Oversight Mechanism (Rom) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia Friday.

" Kenya shares the same vision of the peace framework PSCU and is happy to be involved in the framework. Kenya remains concerned with the breakout of violence in the region and would like to participate in improving the situation, he said.

He noted that despite numerous peace initiatives, instability and conflict has plagued eastern DRC for many years, resulting in loss of life, displacement and general insecurity. The conflicts in the Central African Republic and in South Sudan too made for grim reading.

That said, he argued that there was reason to look to the future and to believe in a prosperous region following the agreement by a number of countries to foster infrastructure development between them.

"Within that context, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi, South Sudan have held three infrastructure summits to enhance infrastructure development, railway, oil and power transmission, he added.
