The discussions come after the EU delegation paid a courtesy call to Kenya’s former President Uhuru Kenyatta

Former President Uhuru Kenyatta on Tuesday met a European Union (EU) delegation for talks on the current operational situation, progress made, and their support for the ongoing political process of finding lasting peace and stability in the eastern part of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

The EU delegation was led by Bernard Quintin, who is the Deputy Managing Director for Africa.

Kenyatta, who is the facilitator of the East African Community (EAC)–led Nairobi peace process, also met with US Ambassador to Kenya Meg Whitman as well as her Switzerland counterpart Valentin Zellweger for the deliberations.

The former Head of State also received a report from his technical advisors following a meeting with the East African Community Monitoring and Verification Mechanism earlier.

The former Head of State recently expressed hope that the ongoing process will ultimately bring peace to the region and that the displaced persons will be able to go back to their homes and farms.

He spoke on May 8, 2023 after he paid a courtesy call to Burundian President Évariste Ndayishimiye at the State House in Bujumbura, where he stated the importance of peace to the region.
