Ruto’s ambition reform plan for AU’s self-sustenance

Kenyan President William Ruto, who is also the African Union (AU) Champion for Institutional Reform, laid out an ambitious plan to transform the AU to better meet the continent’s current needs. The plan emphasises reforming the union to enhance its role in economic negotiations, peace and security, and infrastructure development.

Ruto spoke at the Africa CEO Forum in Kigali, Rwanda, on May 17, a week before the AU’s Subcommittee in charge of budget, administration, and finance matters convened for an annual retreat to adopt the 2025 budget.
