Cameroon will preside over the Peace and Security Council (PSC), the standing decision-making organ of the African Union (AU) on the prevention and resolution of conflicts for the month of May.
The Central African Country will be in charge for ten substantive meetings. The discussions, according to the PSC, would focus on “governance and security concerns in the continent, including unconstitutional government changes, humanitarian crises, and terrorism.”
The sessions, according to Cameroon’s permanent envoy to the African Union, will provide an opportunity to examine and compare the varied efforts and issues that African countries confront.
Security issues in the Horn of Africa and the Lake Chad Basin, which includes seven countries: Algeria, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Libya, Niger, and Nigeria, are at the top of the list.
Burundian troops were killed on Tuesday when Al-Shabaab terrorists stormed a base holding African Union forces south of Mogadishu, Somalia’s capital.
This further jeopardises peace and security in the Horn of Africa, according to Moussa Faki Mahamat, the African Union Commission’s head, who described it as a “heinous attack” that “would not dissuade ATMIS forces.” Early in 2004, the PSC was completely functioning.
