EAC heads of state summit in Arusha cancelled, again

Signs of widening cracks among East African Community (EAC) member states have emerged after a heads of state summit was cancelled for the second time in three weeks.

The meeting of the presidents of Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi and South Sudan, which was slated for December 27 in Arusha, has been pushed to a later date.

“It is now official. The summit will not take place on December 27,” Christophe Bazivamo, EAC deputy secretary-general in charge of production and social sectors, told The Citizen.

He said the date and venue of the twice postponed 20th summit will be communicated to partner states at a later date.

The ministerial segment of the summit which was to begin today (Thursday), he said, has been put off indefinitely.
