Africa Unity: Call to Action

Published on 31st May 2016

Egypt has been asked to apologise to other African countries for calling them "dogs and slaves" during the recent United Nations Environment Assembly meeting in Nairobi. The verbal attacks on Africa were allegedly made by the current President of African Ministerial Conference on the Environment.

The attacks are a manifestation of the prevailing undercurrents negating Africa’s unity. Some quarters in Africa such as Sudan don’t consider themselves to be Africans. Africans are still divided along Anglophone, Lusophone and Francophone lines, and analyse issues using these prisms.

These fault lines must be urgently addressed if Africa has to realize its Agenda 2063, a call to action to all segments of African society to work together to build a common future and destiny based on the AU Vision.
