Africa is going nowhere if governments and leaders act on experimentation of testing the waters first

by Saunders Jumah - 01 September 2016

Blog-EIII01African governments and leaders are going to be issued with African passports as a first step to direct the path towards continental unity. While we appreciate and ululate such stances and developments, we must critically examine such moves. If African presidents get these travel documents of what importance will they be, because already these leaders travel with green or red diplomatic passports with no restrictions. Would it not be conducive if they could just declare that African passports are available to everyone who is interested travelling across the Continent? This type of attitude of testing waters first before trying to implement noble goals and objectives has already failed Africa for 70 years.
