The African Union will Monday open the Fourth High Level Dialogue on Democracy, Human Rights and Governance in Africa in Kigali.

The two-day meeting, which will bring together more than 40 participants from across the continent, will discuss trends, challenges and the prospects facing the continent.

Addressing the media yesterday, Prof. Anastase Shyaka, the chief executive of Rwanda Governance Board, said hosting such an event was a great opportunity for the country.

“We are privileged and excited to host the fourth high level dialogue as a country. It’s an important moment to involve the young people, especially women to participate in this dialogue, we expect them to gain much from it,” Shyaka said.
