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.
