Uhuru awarded for his peacekeeping contribution in Northern Ethiopia

Former President of the Republic of Kenya, Uhuru Kenyatta, was on Sunday evening recognized and awarded alongside other stakeholders for his contribution to the peaceful settlement of the conflict in the northern part of Ethiopia.

The Former President was awarded during a recognition program organized by the Ethiopian government to take stock of lessons learned from the African Union-led and Ethiopian-owned peace process.

Former President of Nigeria and the A.U. High Representative for the Horn of Africa Olusegun Obasanjo, and the former deputy president of South Africa Phumzile, Mlambo- Ngcuka, were also awarded in the event themed “Enough with war lets sustain peace.”

In his remarks at the event, held at Friendship Square Addis Ababa, Uhuru commended the people of Ethiopia for their commitment to finding lasting peace in the Northern region, saying the found peace is a testimony that the African continent can resolve her problems.

“The commitment shown and the leadership of the African Union has indeed proved that Africa can work out her problems, and what has happened in Ethiopia is a testimony that Africa can work out its problems,” he said.

He further said Ethiopia is the heart of Africa and is a country of the great potential that has shown the world how different nationalities and communities can live peacefully under one flag.

On his part, Nigeria’s former President Obasanjo commended the people of Ethiopia and all parties that played a role in finding lasting peace in the country’s Northern Region.

He particularly thanked the African Union Commission chairperson Moussa Faki for entrusting the High-Level panel with the sensitive task and the appointed panel for their commitment to the process.

Obasanjo further urged the people of Ethiopia to continue honoring the peace agreement saying he has great hope for unity, peace, security, and stability.

Other leaders recognized and awarded in the ceremony that began by observing a minute of silence for the people who lost their lives during the war included the African Union Commission Moussa Faki Mahamat, South African Minister of International Relations and Cooperation Naledi Pandor, among other dignitaries.

The joint African Union Monitoring, Verification, and Compliance Mission (AU-MVCM) team was also among those rewarded during the event.

The conflict in Northern Ethiopia found a peaceful resolution through the Peace agreement signed on the 2nd of November 2022 in Pretoria, South Africa, where the Ethiopian government and the regional forces from Tigray agreed to cease hostilities, a surprise diplomatic breakthrough after nearly two years of war.

The Ethiopia Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed and the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) interim President Getachew Reda also graced the occasion alongside other government and Tigray officials.
