The annual African Union summit is taking place in Addis Ababa, where the theme this year is about fighting corruption. Kenya is broadly supportive of the reforms.

"In a rapidly changing global economy, with much uncertainty, we believe that the establishment of a CFTA would provide Africa with tremendous opportunity to achieve significant growth driven by intra-African trade", the President said in justifying Nigeria's vote for the CFTA.

China's problems with building trust around the world just don't seem to have an end. "This once again shows that Africa is ready to preserve Madiba's legacy of pan-African solidarity as well as peace and reconciliation".

On UN peacekeeping, Mr. Guterres added that was, however, not the solution to all crises...

President Kenyatta was due to present a report on Africa's peer review efforts covering the last two years on Monday.
