Seychelles calls for greater monitoring of AU spending

16-July-2016
Seychelles has called for greater operational accountability of the African Union (AU) through thorough monitoring and evaluation mechanism.
Speaking at the 29th Executive Council of the African Union in Kigali, Rwanda earlier this week, the head of the Seychelles delegation, the secretary of state for Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Barry Faure, said that Seychelles was happy to support greater African ownership of AU programmes but that stringent monitoring of the AU budget was of “paramount importance”.
He further called on the Union to “spend the resources efficiently and with utmost prudence”.
The secretary of state added that Seychelles welcomed the re-alignment of the AU budget with the aspirational development programme Agenda 2063 as the AU tries to reduce its dependency on external funding.
The Seychelles delegation also attended the 27th Assembly of the AU in Kigali, of which the gathering of foreign ministers formed part.
During this Summit the gathering of heads of State addressed key development issues including but not limited to continental integration and the free movement of people.
Mr Faure, who was heading the Seychelles delegation to the Executive Council and Assembly, was accompanied by the permanent representative to the AU and resident ambassador in Addis Ababa, Joseph Nourrice, resident Seychelles ambassador in Pretoria, Claude Morel, and principal counsellor in the Seychelles embassy in Addis Ababa, Amanda Bernstein.
