AU summit on final day focuses on conflicts, anti-corruption fight”

Rwandan President Paul Kagame will lead the Pan-African bloc, but he will need the decisive support from the leaders of the continent to make Africa the region dreamed by them and their predecessors, the Ethiopian Herald said.

In an attempt to soothe the outcry generated by his "shithole" statement, Trump addressed a letter last Thursday to African leaders, who were meeting in Addis Ababa to discuss the continent's priorities for 2018.

The disturbing news in town is that the African Union's Computer network built and paid for by the Chinese government appeared not safe, with claims that China inserted a backdoor allowing it access to the continental organisation's confidential information.

The 55-nation appears to have chose to react diplomatically and strategically to U.S. President 's alleged vulgar remarks about the continent.

Thus, with CFTA, our continent will be more integrated, united and prosperous."He noted that the "CFTA will carry significant welfare gains associated with increased production, consumption and revenue".

In October, four US servicemen were killed after being ambushed by militants while on patrol in Niger.

According to the Mail and Guardian, once the problem was discovered, African Union officials acted quickly to fix it. "We should move as fast as we can to realize this", he said. The previous week he said "Africa can not keep quiet" about 's "shocking" remarks.

He said: "The AU is also trying to create dialogue between various warring sides in Libya for elections to take place, to ensure the North African state doesn't become a failed state".

"It's a sensational and total preposterous accusation".

China's ambassador to the AU, Kuang Weilin, called the article "ridiculous and preposterous" and said its publication was meant to put pressure on relations between Beijing and the continent.

The 's headquarter in Ethiopia's capital, was built as a gift by China to Africa at a cost of more than $200 million.

Also at the summit, it was announced the organization has launched a new aviation deregulation scheme.

His contemptuous comments, which were about immigrants from El Salvador, Haiti and African countries, have provoked severe criticism in the U.S. and overseas.
