Uhuru to attend AU summit in Ethiopia

29 January 2014, 16:09 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta will attend the 22nd Extra-Ordinary Summit of Heads of State and Government of the African Union in Addis Ababa Ethiopia where the International Criminal Court ICC is set to come up for deliberation.

The theme of the summit is, “transforming Africa’s agriculture: harnessing opportunities for inclusive growth and sustainable development”.

President Kenyatta will leave the country today Wednesday evening for the summit after addressing a press conference at State House Nairobi.

It is understood that the main topic up for deliberation the ICC aside will be agriculture and food security, with drought still a worry for many African states including Kenya and will see the 10th anniversary of the adoption of the Comprehensive Africa Agricultural Development Programme (CAADP).

The International Criminal Court will also be a part of deliberations, with the AU still seeking to review its relationship with the court following its earlier decision to push for reforms which sought to have sitting presidents not face trial at the ICC.

The heads of state will follow progress on a proposal to expand the mandate and jurisdiction of the African Court of Justice, to take over the mandate of the ICC.

Other key topics that will be discussed in Addis will be the ongoing unrest in South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Central African Republic.
