on 14th May 2014, Kivumbi Earnest Benjamin (L with H.E Yoweri Kaguta Museveni) a Ugandan Politician, aged 25 and President of Heal The Planet Global Organisation-HTP (www.healdeplanet.webs.com) Presented a paper to HTP Team in which he stipulated need to form a continental bloc for Africa that would help to confront the Challenges of Africa both currently and for the future.
A continent that has thrived through slave trade, colonialism, coups, civil wars, disease, poverty, natural calamities like floods, famine, human rights violation and instability would reclaim the dream of it's predecessors under a combined and unified loud voice.
This could see the raise of better standards of living of the people of Africa, improved transport, free mobility of labor, growth of the economy, boosting of Tourism, sustainability of peace and security, developing of industries, conservation of Aquatic and Wild life as well as protection and conservation of the environment at the continent will see Africa emerge into a super power ever of all times.
Today Africa 54 is yet to hold a summit in Kampala, Speke Resort Munyonyo and see the launch of this historical bloc by Heads of State from 12th-14th Dec 2014.
The aspect of a political federation might not be soon anytime but the sense of a unified factor and cooperation as well as partnership and joint ventures for Military, Security, Trade, Transport, Education, Banking, Communication, Health, Research and so much more are exceptional factors.
With this deal, its of no doubt that Africa 54 will achieve more than A.U which of course we highly appreciate for standing the test of time but in order to redefine and reclaim the African Dream, we've got to move much faster than this hence the call for Africa.
