South Sudan president Salva Kiir has arrived in Uganda to attend the mini-summit in Kampala.

He arrived at Entebbe airport minutes before the arrival of Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who landed at 1PM local time, to attend a small ceremony at Entebbe airport.

Government spokesperson, Ofwono Opondo said the mini-summit at State House, Entebbe, will involve seven African leaders.

Its focus will be on combating terrorism.


Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta, Rwandan President Paul Kagame, Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn, Zambian President Edgar Lungu and Tanzanian Foreign Minister Augustine Mahiga are expected in Uganda ahead of a summit with Netanyahu.

Benjamin Netanyahu jets into Uganda today as he embarks on a five-day Africa tour, the first by an Israeli Prime Minister since 1994.

His brother “Yoni” was among those killed when Israeli commandos raided Entebbe to free Israelis who had been taken hostages by Palestinian hijackers.
