We used the thirty-seventh edition of the Africa in Focus show to reprise the very important issue of what we consider to be "rising" East Africa. We believe it to be rising a lot more than is talked about in this part of the sub-region.
Kenya has Vision 2030; Ghana has...what, exactly? The country seems to have become bereft of the Pan-African vision it was reputed to have in the days of Nkrumah. It is in this spirit we at Africa in Focus believe it is important to create synergies between
West and East Africa, hence our #EASTAFRICARISING initiative, which we initiated back in June 2014, when we commenced the first edition of "East Africa Rising".
We have taken a step forward with this by establishing BOTH a facebook page (www.facebook.com/eastafricarising), and twitter presence (www.twitter.com/eastafricarisng) to enhance the synergy with the already-existing whatsapp group, which is populated by journalists; activists; and professionals from East Africa; Southern Africa; and West Africa.
