President Paul Kagame chairing the implementation of African Union reforms will on Sunday receive 54 Africa’s foreign affairs ministers and ambassadors representing their countries in AU to discuss execution of recently approved reforms as announced by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The announcement reads that media will have access to some sections of the meetings which will be “a good opportunity for discussions among potential African diplomats and others attending the meeting for the sake of reforms on the entire continent.”

The meeting follows the previous convening envoys of African Union Peace and Security Council held from 3-5 in a retreat to promote security, resolve conflicts and concerting Africa’s efforts to counter terrorism.

President Kagame, AU chairperson Alpha Condé and former AU leader IdrissDébyItno and AU commission chairperson MoussaFakiMahamat recently met on 24th April to agree on processes to should be respected while implementing reforms.

Kagame was assigned to assess needed African Union reforms and provide a report in the summit held in Rwanda last year. The report was presented to heads of states in January 2017 who appreciated it, supported resolutions and assigned Kagame to follow up their implementation.

Priority areas to be revised include connecting Africa as a unite continent, enhancing good cooperation with other parts of the world, making African Union member states able to sustainably fund own activities and capacitate African Union to demonstrate good performance producing fruitful results.
