The head of the African Union Commission (AUC) is urging leaders to address conflicts across the continent and denouncing recent coups in some African nations.

Moussa Faki Mahamat delivered this message at the start of the two-day AU summit in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. He highlighted the ongoing wars in Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo as major concerns for the AU.

Additionally, he emphasized the need to discuss issues like the conflict between Israel and Hamas, poverty, climate change, and education.

Mr. Faki expressed deep worries about the multitude of challenges facing Africa, including political instability, terrorism, and military spending at the expense of social sectors.

He also voiced concerns about unconstitutional changes of government in West Africa and the political crisis in Senegal.

Despite these challenges, he welcomed Senegal’s commitment to holding free and transparent elections soon.
