President Museveni has Thursday left for Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia to attend the 24th African Union (AU) Summit.
The President was seen off this at Entebbe International Airport by the Head of Public Service,Mr. John Mitala.
Others at the Airport included the Deputy Commander of the Air Foces, Col. Lutaaya Charles, Deputy Inspector General of Police, Mr. Okot Ochola and the Commissioner General of Prisons, Dr. Johnson Byabashaija.
According to reports, one of the themes of the Summit is expected to deliberate on “The Development Towards Africa’s Agenda 2063”, preparing the African continent for its future building upon the progress currently underway and effectively learning lessons from the past.
The continental Heads of State and Government are also expected to discuss lessons and stigma of Ebola and the need to have a Centre for Disease Control.
West African countries have since last year been traumatized by Ebola but early this month the World Health Organization reported that Ebola cases have declined sharply in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, the countries hardest hit by the Ebola outbreak. WHO has, however, warned those nations to remain vigilant.
Leaders will also discuss the manner in which the International Criminal Court (ICC) is handling crimes in Africa.
Leaders accuse the Hague-based court of harassing African presidents and propagating agendas of foreign institutions.
Museveni recently said he would encourage AU to break ties with ICC.
