The South African government has wished Rwanda and Kenya well ahead of the staging of Presidential elections.
Rwanda’s Paul Kagame, who is representing the ruling Rwanda Patriotic Front, is vying for his third term in office, whilst his Kenyan counterpart Uhuru Kenyatta will be seeking a second term at the helm of east Africa’s largest economy.
Rwandese will go to the polls Friday whilst Kenyans will participate in the closely contested elections next week Tuesday.
Briefing the media in Pretoria, International Relations and Cooperation Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane called for peaceful and credible elections.
“Africans believes in peace, security and development and principles of free, fair and credible elections. That’s what we expect of our fellow members. This is the value we have chosen to silence the guns by 2020 in line with the aspirations of the Agenda 2063.”
