Uhuru heads to Ethiopia for South Sudan talks

05 August 2016, 17:55 PSCU

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta travelled to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on Friday to attend an IGAD Summit on South Sudan. 

The President will join other leaders at the meeting in the latest regional effort to push for a lasting solution to the challenges facing the world’s youngest nation.

Fresh fighting erupted in Juba early last month between forces loyal to President Salva Kiir and his then First Vice President Riek Machar, threatening to take South Sudan back to civil war.

The renewed hostilities undermined a peace deal signed last August between parties involved in the conflict.

Uhuru, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni and Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn helped mediate the negotiations that culminated in the signing of the peace agreement.

The plane carrying Uhuru departed from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport shortly after 1pm.

The President was seen off by Interior CS Joseph Nkaissery and other senior government officials.
