The Governing Council of the African Bar Association (AFBA) has approved Kenya’s bid to host the 2018 edition of the association’s conference.
In a hotly contested hosting bid, Kenya defeated Egypt and Burundi to win next years’ hosting right.
The Council urged Egypt and other interested State members of AFBA to host Regional Conferences and programmes to optimally harness the association’s contribution to socio-economic and political development of Africa.
The association strongly condemned human rights abuses in Cameroun and other parts of Africa. It vowed to seek options to enforce human rights issues and judgements of Regional and Dub-Regional Courts.
AFBA commended the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) for the warn relationship existing between the two association’s and applauded the General Secretary of NBA, Isiaka Olagunju for finding time to attend the conference.
The President of AFBA, Hannibal Uwaifo, informed the meeting that the International Criminal Court (ICC) has invited AFBA to the Hague to sign cooperation agreement with the court.
