Zuma arrives in Ethiopia for AU summit

In 2017, during the AU's 29th Session, African leaders unanimously endorsed Buhari to champion the fight against corruption on the continent.

After signing the new AU-UN Framework for the Implementation of Agenda 2063 and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Secretary-General said that across the three main pillars of the United Nations - development, peace and security, and human rights - the African continent is key to solving global problems.

For the continent that desperately requires substantial financial resources to meet its extensive development needs, including in filling its huge infrastructure gap, such a significant amount of financial resources leakage through IFF and various forms of corrupt practices is definitely something that needs to be fought with every energy that can be mustered, she added.

AU and WHO officials, together with ministers of AU member states and global health care partners, expressed the concern during a high-level panel meeting on malaria held on the sidelines of the 30th AU summit at the AU headquarters in Ethiopia's capital Addis Ababa. It seems that Rwandan President Paul Kagame will come after President of Guinea Conakry Alpha Conde as a chairman of the union, and observers expect that reforms will be launched during his term. Faki Mahamat commented on the topic of 2018, considering that choosing this topic was absolute because corruption has aggravated in the continent causing devastating consequences on the economic development, social coherence and political stability.

Part of his engagement at the summit is the flag off of a continent-wide campaign against corruption. So, they have their plate full and it is going to be deeply and highly engaging for them. This election should mark one of the highlights of the 30th African summit, observers said.

Recall that President Buhari had secured the endorsement in recognition of his personal commitment and widely acclaimed anti-graft drive at the domestic level.

The Egyptian president is also scheduled to head a gathering on cross-border terrorism by the Peace and Security Council (PSC), the AU body in charge of maintaining continental peace and security, which Egypt is heading in January.
