The East African Federation Nears - An Insightful Example To The Rest Of Africa? Watch

    Just recently, the current East African Community (EAC), the prototype to the East African Federation will be entering the third stage of integration (the Monetary Union) by the end of this year.

    Estimates are that the goal of a common currency will be fulfilled in a year or two, whilst full political federation will occur in a matter of years.

    Is this an insightful and inspirational example for the rest of Sub-Saharan Africa? Is this yet another example of the increasing move by several states across the planet towards globalism and greater regional unions?


    Additionally:

    Other similar ideas, which haven't reached quite as far as the EAC (which itself is a kind of proto-EAF) include the Central Asian Union and the South East Asian Union, but of course, due to the nature of those regions and countries, that may be far, far off into the future. In apposition, we have the idea of the North American Union, whilst on the other hand, we have the progressing Union of South American Nations.

    And of course, lastly, we have the European Union which causes controversy amongst many - but it is highly doubtful that Britain or any other will ever leave it, as that will effectively be a "regress", because one is blind if they cannot see that there is an ever-increasing move towards Globalism (in other words, the epitome of globalism being, what some term as "One World Government").

    Certainly a new type of super-state, yes. It is like the EU, yet quite unlike it in fact, given that the relationship between the countries that will make up the EAF will be much, much closer than the countries in the EU currently are.

    It is my belief that other regions such as West African states and Southern African states should follow suit - however, many of their corrupt leaders are reluctant because a close union would involve more scrutiny and less toleration of corruption and general nonsense that comes with some silly African leaders.
