KIGALI - The President of Burundi, Pierre Nkurunziza, is in the country and will, today, address the 4th East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) Summit underway at the Parliamentary buildings in Kigali.
Nkurunziza will address the regional legislators in his capacity as the Chairperson of the EAC Chairperson of the EAC Heads of State Summit.
The session opened, on Tuesday last week, with a special sitting that was addressed by President Paul Kagame.
This is the fourth session of the regional legislative body where legislators interact, share experiences and discuss policies and protocols relating to the EAC integration process.
The Minister of East African Community, Monique Mukaruriza, said in an interview that President Nkurunziza, in his capacity as Chairman, will address the assembly on the blocs’ progress as well as projections for next year.
“Every year, the chairperson of EAC makes a State of EAC address and updates the summit on the priorities of the community,” Mukaruriza said.
