Deputy President William Ruto has arrived in Luanda, Angola for the United Nations Great Lakes Peace Security and Cooperation Summit.

The plane carrying DP Ruto and his delegation touched down at Quatro de Fevereiro International Airport in Luanda, shortly before 4am ahead of the 7th High Level Regional Oversight Mechanism for Peace, Security and Cooperation.

The summit will focus on levels of implementation of commitments under the Peace, Security and Cooperation framework for Democratic Republic of Congo, Burundi and South Sudan.

This is the first time the high level regional meeting is being held outside the African Union and the United Nations General Assembly.

“Impressed by the progress of peace talks between warring factions in the Central African Republic (CAR) on his post and look forward to the realisation of lasting peace in the near future,” posted Ruto on his Facebook page.

“Held talks with CAR Prime Minister Simplice Sarandji ahead of the 7th High Level UN Great Lakes Meeting on Peace and Security in Luanda, Angola, where I am representing President Uhuru Kenyatta.”

President Kenyatta had to cancel his plans to attend the summit and fly back to the country to lead an emergency security meeting after Tuesday’s attack in Mandera which claimed 12 people.
