AU summit: Tshisekedi-Kagame head-to-head in Addis Ababa Monday


Félix-Antoine Tshisekedi Tshilombo and Paul Kagame, Presidents Congolese and Rwandan Rd respectively

The President of the Republic, Félix-Antoine Tshisekedi Tshilombo, had a tête-à-tête on Monday, February 11, 2019 with his Rwandan counterpart, Paul Kagame, in Addis Ababa, capital of Ethiopia. For the moment nothing has filtered from their exchanges.

In addition to his Rwandan counterpart, the President of the Republic, Felix Tshisekedi, also had a series of meetings with some of his African counterparts in the morning including Alpha Condé and Alassane Dramane Ouattara, respectively presidents of Guinea and Côte d'Ivoire .

It is fitting, however, to recall that the Rwandan President, Paul Kagame, then AU President, had within days of the proclamation of the final results of the presidential election by the Constitutional Court, asked the said Court to suspend the operation pending the arrival of a special commission of the African Union.

A request that Kinshasa had fiercely opposed. The various forces of the country with the exception of the camp of the opponent Martin Fayulu, had qualified this request "of interference" to the internal affairs of a sovereign State. The delegation of Heads of State who should then go to Kinshasa, had finally canceled his visit since the judgment of the Court was returned the day before their arrival in Kinshasa.
