President Uhuru Kenyatta this morning left the country for Ethiopia to attend a high level security forum.
A message on the President’s Facebook page read:
I have arrived in Ethiopia to attend the fourth Tana High-Level Forum on Security in Africa that is being held at Bahir Dar with the theme ‘Secularism and Politicised Faith’. The Tana forum focuses on finding African solutions for Africa’s security challenges. This year’s meeting is dedicated to addressing the dangers posed by the increased politicization and manipulation of religion at a time many countries in Africa including Kenya are faced with violence perpetrated by criminals who exploit and mask their activities with religion. I will later in the afternoon proceed to the Kingdom of Jordan for the Horn of Africa Coordination Meeting hosted by Jordan and whose focus is how to fight terrorism and radicalization.
