Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi will leave the country on Monday, August 7, for a two day visit to Kampala, Uganda.

Mudavadi will represent President William Ruto during the second G5 African coffee summit of Heads of State and Government which will be held tomorrow.

The theme for the event is ‘Transforming the African Coffee Sector through Value Addition.’ 

The High-Level Summit will focus on assisting member states in addressing the challenges affecting the African coffee value chain.

"The goal is to propose solutions that ensure sustainable coffee production, research, market access, and promotion of coffee consumption through intra-regional trade.

Last year, the G25 Coffee Summit took place in Kenya's Capital Nairobi.

During the summit, the Heads of State and Government of the 25 coffee-producing countries signed the "Nairobi Declaration." 

The declaration commits them to seek consensus on integrating coffee as a strategic agricultural commodity within the African Union, in line with the Africa Agenda 2063.
