THE FATE OF CONGO’s PRESIDENTIAL Elections in Addis Abbeba
President Paul Kagame, who is also the Chairperson of the African Union (AU), is set to convene a high-level consultation meeting of 16 heads of state and government on the situation in the Democratic Republic of Congo, a statement from AU headquarters in Addis Ababa has said.
The AU did not give details of the agenda of the meeting, which will take place in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
According to the statement, the high level meeting is expected to take place Thursday and it will be preceded by an internal consultation meeting by the Southern African Development Community (SADC) to which DR Congo is a member.
The pre-SADC meeting was also confirmed by Hage G. Geingob, the President of Namibia, who is also the incoming Chairperson of SADC.
He said in a tweet this week that he had consulted President Lourenço of Angola on the DRC situation, and that they agreed a Double Troika will jointly convene in Addis Ababa.
