AFRICAN PASSPORT TO ENCOURAGE ECONOMIC GROWTH

Africa’s efforts to facilitate the free movement of people on the continent will be strengthened by the issuance of an African passport.

African leaders and high-ranking African Union (AU) diplomats will be issued with the African passport at the AU leaders summit taking place in the Rwandan capital, Kigali, Sunday and Monday.

The objective is to spur the continent’s economic growth and promote intra-African trade.

Rwanda is spearheading the initiative.

The country’s Foreign Affairs Minister, Louise Mushikiwabo, said here Sunday: “Our strategic thinking is that the fear of insecurity should not stop Africans from moving freely from one country to another. Security must not be an impediment.
