    Uhuru Kenyatta rejects AU peace talks duty

    Published on

    Uhuru Kenyatta, a former president of Kenya, has decided not to participate in peace negotiations for the continuing violence in Ethiopia.

    Uhuru informed African Union Chairman Mousa Faki in a letter that he would be busy with other responsibilities.

    “Unfortunately, I must inform your great office that I will be unable to attend the AU-Convened Peace Talks set for October 8, 2022, in South Africa due to scheduling issues. I appreciate your commitment to our continent’s Pan-African cry for peace. Please accept the assurances of my greatest regard, Excellency.” As Kenya’s peace envoy, Uhuru signed the letter.

    The ex-president was supposed to preside over the peace negotiations on Saturday, October 8 in South Africa.

    He also requested a new date for the peace negotiations, explaining to the mediators that he would like further information about the format and logistics of the meeting, including but not limited to ground rules for all invited parties.

    He felt that with this explanation, he would be better able to actively participate.

    Ethiopia’s government and the Tigray People’s Liberation Front(TPLF) had been at war, and Uhuru was supposed to arbitrate the conflict with former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo and former South African Deputy President Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka.
