Speaker Among calls for unity to advance strategic interests

Kampala: The Speaker of Parliament, Annet Among Anita, who doubles as a woman member of parliament for Bukedea district, has urged African countries in the Commonwealth to leverage their numerical strength to advance their African values and aspirations.

I was speaking at the 86th Executive Committee Meeting of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (Africa Region) at the Protea Hotel in Entebbe today, Monday, March 11, 2024.

While presiding over the meeting, he said the CPA Africa Region is a strategic vehicle for galvanizing African nations towards unity, sustainable growth, and development.

“This meeting should remind us about the global challenges and historic colonial distortions that keep us divided, exploited, marginalized, and abused as a people. The good news is that Africa enjoys considerable numerical strength in the Commonwealth. However, I think we have not yet leveraged our numerical strength to advance and champion our strategic interests,” Among said.

She further urged the rest of the African countries in the Commonwealth to take advantage of the association to liberate Africa and eliminate major hurdles and challenges affecting its people.
