Former President Uhuru Kenyatta Will Not Attend Peace Making Duties In South Africa

Former President Uhuru Kenyatta will not be attending the Ethiopia-Tigray peace talks set to take place on Saturday, October 8 in South Africa, citing a scheduling conflict.

Diplomatic sources at the same time told The Associated Press on Friday that the talks have been postponed and will not take place as planned this weekend because of logistics and other issues.

Mr Kenyatta, who is President William Ruto’s Peace Envoy to the Horn and Great Lakes region, had been invited by the African Union Commission Chairperson Moussa Faki Mahamat as part of a “troika of negotiators” to help the warring parties establish terms of their dialogue. The talks are scheduled for Sunday in South Africa.

Nonetheless, meanwhile, and as you think about how conceivable it is for one more date for the harmony talks, I would be thankful to get further clearness on the construction and modalities of the discussions, including yet not restricted to the principles of commitment for every one of the questioners welcomed," Kenyatta said in a conciliatory note seen by The East African.

"This explanation would extraordinarily help in arrangements for my commitment and cooperation."Ethiopia on Wednesday said it had acknowledged a challenge to go to harmony talks drove by the African Association Exceptional Agent for the Horn of Africa Olusegun Obasanjo, in South Africa.
