The chairperson of the African Union Commission, Dr Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma has met Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta on Thursday in a working visit.

Dr Zuma & President Kenyatta agreed on the need for the African Union to rapidly respond to emergencies & unstable areas.

Zuma said the “African Union is ready to partner with Kenya for African peace and prosperity.”

The northern Kenyan town of Garissa has been hit by grenade and bomb attacks in the recent past.

Kenyan security personnel patrolling the Somalia border have been targeted since Kenya sent its troops to fight Al-Shabaab inside Somalia.

Kenya remains committed to Pan Africanism & African Renaissance as well as the African Union, said Kenyatta.

President Kenyatta also thanked the AU for support during the recently concluded Kenyan polls.

“We appreciate African support and solidarity during the Kenya Election and Inauguration,” said Kenyatta.

The 50th Anniversary of the OAU/AU celebrations are from next month under the theme of Pan Africanism and the African Renaissance.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) last week approved $108.5 million under the extended credit facility to support ongoing economic reforms in Kenya.

The IMF said Kenya’s economic growth has kept a good pace despite the slowdown of exports and tourism from Europe.
