China denies spying on African Union

The letter, sent last week, comes after Trump provoked a firestorm of indignation among African nations earlier in January, when he reportedly called them "sh*thole countries" during a meeting with lawmakers in Washington.

Chinese ambassador to the AU Kuang Weilin has called a report in on this issue "sensational".

A report by French publication Le Monde claimed that China was copying contents of computers that are in the AU headquarters in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

When the espionage was uncovered a year ago, the building's IT system including servers was changed, according to Le Monde. During a sweep for bugs after the discovery, microphones were also found hidden in desks and the walls, the newspaper reported.

The letter also mentioned that "US troops are fighting side by side" with African soldiers against terrorism and extremism in the continent, adding that his commitment to the partnership with Africa is "firm".

On Monday at about 3pm local time 1pm in Angola the Head of State left the Addis Ababa - at Bole International Airport and he was bid farewell by the Ethiopian Minister of Labor, Girma Ament.

He attended the Board of Directors of the African Renewable Energy Initiative (AREI) chaired by the President of Guinea, Alpha Condé and presented the Bank's financial report as the fiduciary of AREI.

"Through these efforts, we have recovered significant territories that were previously under the command of Al Shabaab", President Kenyatta said.

Buhari expressed Nigeria's grave concern over the increasing threats posed by transnational terrorism and the attendant humanitarian crisis and also condemned in the strongest terms the continued activities of the terrorist groups in Africa, and around the world and called for more concerted action by the African body and the worldwide community to address the global scourge.

"I don't worry about being spied on in AU headquarters".

The new AU chairperson Rwandan President Mr Paul Kagame told member states that despite the challenges facing the continent, it was important to infuse the economies with technology for advanced development.

He said the world must stop directing all focus to the return of radicalised foreign fighters in the Western nations while paying less attention to those who may return to areas with terrorist cells in Africa.

He did, however, say the AU should have built its own headquarters.
