Obama invites African leaders to G8 summit

Posted by Ethio Tribune on May 4, 2012

WASHINGTON — US President Barack Obama has invited the leaders of Benin, Ethiopia, Ghana and Tanzania to take part in a session on food security in Africa at the G8 summit this month, officials said Thursday.

Obama will host the leaders of the rich nation’s club at his Camp David retreat in Maryland between May 18-19.

He has now asked Benin’s president and African Union chairman Thomas Boni Yayi, Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi, President John Mills of Ghana and Tanzania’s President Jakaya Kikwete to join the session on food security.

Fears of famine and drought are stalking several areas of Africa.

Water shortages have hit communities in Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya.

Aid groups have also sounded alarm over a separate hunger crisis in the west of Africa where the Sahel region of Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Mauritania and Niger has been hit hard by drought, high food prices and conflict.
