Africa is developing but not fast enough – Kenyatta

04 Mar 2019

Addis Ababa, Ethiopia (ADV) – Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta has expressed dismay over the rate at which African leaders were developing the continent.

“What we need now is to prioritize and fast-track integration processes for the continent to develop more quickly.

“We, the current leaders need to learn from founding fathers and unite the people in order to achieve this goal.

President Kenyatta made the statement on Saturday evening in Ethiopia during a state dinner held in his honour by his Ethiopian counterpart.

Earlier Kenyatta had accompanied Abiy Ahmed to inaugurate the Debre Birhan Industrial Park in the Amhara region.

Kenya 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 between our governments and include our populations so as to foster interactions,” he said.

President Kenyatta said that for Africa to defeat ignorance, diseases and poverty, challenges that have suppressed the continent for decades must be addressed by a united force.

“Our people should be [allowed] to travel throughout their continent freely without any hindrances. We are all brothers and sisters with a common heritage,” he said.

Such a call by African leaders is not a novelty instead, it is the efforts they make to develop their countries that are increasingly bedevilled by their involvement in graft.

Added to that is their endless bout against opposition stalwarts and civil society organizations which they consider as stumbling blocks to cling to power.
