AU accepts Uhuru’s special request

AU accepts Uhuru’s special request as the organization cancels peace talks on the Ethiopia-TPLF conflict.

The Ethiopia peace negotiations that were supposed to take place on Saturday, October 8, in South Africa, were postponed by the African Union (AU), who stated logistical reasons.

The Ethiopia peace negotiations that were supposed to take place on Saturday, October 8, in South Africa, were postponed by the African Union (AU), who stated logistical reasons.

On Friday, October 7, the Associated Press reported that diplomatic sources had confirmed the postponement.

Due to his conflicting commitments, former president Uhuru Kenyatta had asked organizers to postpone the peace talks set for Sunday, October 9.

Uhuru, Kenya’s special envoy, reportedly pleaded with the organizers to make clear the procedures to be followed during the mediation process.

“Regrettably, I wish to notify you that I will not be able to attend the AU-Convened Peace Talks in South Africa owing to conflicts in my schedule.

The former president, however, expressed commitment to being a party to such a meeting in the future if informed prior.

Uhuru was expected to accompany former Nigeria President, Olusegun Obasanjo, to mediate the talks aimed at resolving the escalating conflict in Tigray, which broke out in 2020. 

Meanwhile, the Tigray representatives were also said to have sought clarification on the structure of the talks and other assurances. 

The government of Ethiopia and Tigray representatives had agreed to attend the peace talks in South Africa.
