South Africa is set to host peace talks between the Ethiopian government and the Tigray Peoples Liberation Front (TPLF) on Monday, 24 October 2022.

This comes as conflict between the TPLF and the Ethiopian government in the Tigray region have left thousands dead and caused millions to flee.

Previously, the sides agreed to participate in peace talks led by the African Union (AU), however the meeting did not take place and the conflicted instead increased in the Tigray region.

The government of Ethiopia confirmed last week that it will send a delegation to the talks in South Africa that will be facilitated by former Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta and Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo.

Meanwhile, The World Health Organisation (WHO) Director General Tedros Ghebreyesus and many international countries and organizations have been expressing deep concern about the challenges the people of Tigray are facing.
