03.03.2019
ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia, President Uhuru Kenyatta has called on African leaders to prioritise and fast-track the integration processes for the continent to achieve faster development.

He said that the current crop of leaders need to follow the legacies of the founding fathers of African countries by uniting people across the continent.

The Kenyan leader spoke Saturday evening at the Presidential Palace in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, during a state dinner hosted in his honour by the Prime Minister of Ethiopia Abiy Ahmed and President Sahle-Work Zewde.

President Kenyatta called for the removal of all systemic barriers that hinder the blossoming of people-to-people relations in Africa.

“We need to build on the warm relations that exist between our governments to include our populations so as to foster people-to-people interactions,” President Kenyatta said.

He said that for Africa to defeat ignorance, disease and poverty the challenges that have continued to suppress the continent since the days of its founding fathers, Africans must work together as good neighbours and loving brothers.

“Our people should be let to travel throughout their continent freely without any hindrances. We are all brothers and sisters with a common heritage as Africans,” the President said.
