President Yoweri Museveni has launched the process of consulting on the viability of an East African Political Federation, which is being undertaken by a committee of experts led by Chief Justice Emeritus Benjamin Odoki.
Meeting experts at state House Entebbe Musevenj said whereas prosperity can be achieved through economic integration, strategic security is difficult to achieve when we stay as separate countries. A political federation gives us a strong centre of gravity.
“if we can insure cars, insure houses, why don’t we insure Africa? What is the insurance policy for Africa against aggression? The world powers are dominating us in space, water and land. Africa must think of how to secure itself,“he said.
He further called for our unity and economic prosperity saying this will cement our fraternity.
” A big market is important and so is strengthening our brotherhood. I wish the Odoki team all the best as they start this journey of consultation and writing a constitution for the federation,”Museveni explained.
The East African Federation is a proposed political union of the six sovereign states of the East African Community – Burundi, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania and South Sudan.
