The conference is expected to chart strategies aimed at reducing conflict, build social cohesion and promote ethical governance through moral and innovative leadership.

Scheduled to begin on July 21, the conference will be hosted by Zanzibar President Dr Ali Mohamed Shein and also attended by top government, religious and business leaders and other influential public figures.

According to Global Peace Foundation (GPF) country director, Arnold Kashembe the eight former African Heads of State expected to attend the conference include Joyce Banda (Malawi), Rupiah Banda and Kenneth Kaunda (Zambia), Ali Hassan Mwinyi, Benjamin Mkapa, Amani Abeid Karume (Tanzania), Olusegun Obasanjo (Nigeria) and Sir James Mancham (Seychelles)

The theme of the conference is “Promoting Peace, Security and Sustainable Development in East Africa: A Call to Moral and Innovative Leadership”.

He said that leaders from the public, private sector and faith-based communities would deliberate on the best practices and proven models that advance social and political stability, guided by the vision of one family under God.

The launch of the Africa Leadership Mission on Peace building Young Leadership and Service will also offer a forum for some of Africa’s leading statesmen, faith leaders, youth and business leaders to harness their collective knowledge to advance the cause of peace by mitigating identity-based conflict and empowering youth.

  20. In the know says:

    Ex Presidents miss the life of attending summits ndiye they want to remind themselves of the good old days.

  21. Masharubu says:

    After the meeting, the other former presidents will go back to their respective home countries where they will try to impart some of the things discussed at the summit to their own people . Except for one of them…….

  24. PHILLIPS CHISAMBO says:

    So what is new this time,another time of drinking coffee may b as always has been?

  25. Zidura Ntengo Undigwere says:

    I suggest the former president, Joisi Banda attend this meeting.
    But, here is the caveat (don’t tell her this yet): The plane flying from South Africa should stop at Chileka or Lilongwe, under the pretense that there is a mechanical problem. Even if it’s not true.
    Just to shake her up a bit! Or, just so she can look out the window; that may be enough to entice her to disembark, and check on her spouse and abale (her relatives in Domasi and Phalombe). They are dying to see her.
    It is abominable for her to be flying over her own country of birth and citizenship, under the guise of self imposed “political” exile. Fake political exile!
