President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni is in the Ethiopian Capital Addis Ababa, where he joins other Heads of State and Governments for the 32nd Ordinary Session of the African Union Summit.

The summit is being held under the theme “Refugees, Returnees and Internally Displaced Persons: Towards Durable Solutions to Forced Displacement in Africa”.

Prior to the official opening of the assembly on Sunday 10th February, the summit is expected to focus on Africa’s development planning strategies including discussions on pertinent areas like; climate change, political state of Libya, Somalia external debt cancellation among others.

Earlier, Rwanda President and African Union Chairman Paul Kagame arrived in Addis Ababa to chair the 32nd Ordinary Session of the African Union.

The summit is drawing Heads of State and Government from across the continent.

Opposition candidate Martin Fayulu went to the Constitutional Court because Félix Tshisekedi became the new Congolese president.

Last month, African Union heads of state gathered in Ethiopia for a high level consultation meeting on the situation in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Kagame, who is currently the President of the African Union (AU), convened sixteen African leaders to resolve the crisis.
