    Former President Uhuru Kenyatta will not attend peace talks convened by the African Union on the Ethiopia conflict set to be held in South Africa on Saturday. Kenyatta, in a letter to AU chairman Mousa Faki Mahamat on Friday, said he will be forced to skip the talks due to a clash in his schedule. The former head of state, now Kenya’s regional peace envoy, however requested to be furnished with what he termed as the “rules of engagement” for any future peace talks to aid in his preparations and participation. Kenyatta further emphasizing that, for the peace talks to continue, priority must first be placed on the need for both warring entities to put down their weapons.
