MAJOR. African heads of state and top government officials convened
in Kigali, Rwanda last week, for the 27th African Union Summit.
They launched an e-passport that grants citizens of all 54 nations
VISA-free travel throughout the continent. Obviously, government
leaders and diplomats will receive the new African passport first, and
later on the rest of us lesser mortals will.
They will also start taking
steps to establish (what will be known as) the largest free-trade area
in the world by the end of 2017. Instant, unfettered access to more
than 1 billion (going to 2 billion by 2050) people (that sound you hear
is Dangote rubbing his palms).
If you take it to its logical conclusion, I personally think it will spur mass
migration from the less developed countries to more developed ones
like SA, Nigeria and Kenya if there are no restrictions.
