1 min read

Former President Uhuru Kenyatta is in South Africa to facilitate peace talks between the Government of Ethiopia and the rebel group Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF).

The former Head of State alongside the AU High Representative for the Horn of Africa and former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo were invited by the AU to spearhead the mediation, together with former South African Deputy President Mlambo Ngcuka.

An invitation letter by the AU, to the mediators indicates the talks will be deliberating the guiding principles, agenda issues, modalities, format and timelines for the negotiated settlement aimed at laying the foundation for a structured and sustained mediation between the two warring parties.

Whereas Tigray has openly rejected Obasanjo’s role as a mediator, Uhuru Kenyatta has been embraced by both sides of the conflict.
