Africa must come together, according to President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, to ensure both its strategic security and the prosperity of its citizens.
The fact that they have no other option will cause the Africans to awaken. All the people you speak to need to understand pan-Africanism, which was promoted by our elders Julius Nyerere, Jomo Kenyatta, Modibal Keita, Seko Ture, etc., added President Museveni.
At State House in Entebbe, the President was having a meeting with the Global Pan-African Movement Executive Council.
The President was visited at State House by the Executive Council, which is chaired by Maj. Gen. Kahinda Otafiire, the Minister of Internal Affairs and Chairman of the Global Pan-African Movement.
The President urged the Global Pan-African Movement to advance the three concerns of prosperity, strategic security, and African unity as the foundation of the pan-African gospel.
“A more active trade is required if you desire a modern living. Uganda, East Africa, and Africa are therefore necessary. The Pan-African market is what will assist you to expand your business, he continued.
The President claimed that a united Africa might engage in more negotiations with foreign markets.
“Please band together; you are connected. Additionally, we have the neutral language of Kiswahili, according to Museveni.
The President pledged his support for the Pan-African Congress, which will take place in Uganda in 2024.
According to Gen. Otafiire, the congress was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic that swept the world and some member governments’ reluctance to host it.
The governing council made the decision to hold it once more. The delay is a result of COVID-19. The 8th Congress will be held in Uganda in 2024, thus the council is presently in session to make plans for it, Minister Otafiire stated.
“As the Patron, we are presenting you with a budget. We ask that you participate fully in the planning,” he stated.
Delegates from Tanzania, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Ghana, and Togo among others attended the summit.
