“The consequence of colonisation is ideological disorientation whereby it fragmented Africa into tribes and religions that cannot build viable and capable state pillars such as the army, civil service judicial system,” said Museveni.

He continued by saying Africa continues to be challenged by underdeveloped human resources which are a result of a lack of education and health care and inadequate infrastructure which hampers Africa’s business prospects.

He then emphasised the need to remove all barriers that block the integration and vowed to promote infrastructure especially railway transport and electricity.

“The relations, coordination and collaboration among EAC organs are considered to an important impetus for the implementation of EAC decisions,” said Museveni.

EALA Speaker Dr. Margaret Nantongo Zziwa said the legislative body was looking forward to the revival of the Kigali retreat where the Chair of Summit invited all organs of the Community to interface together on the progress of EAC.

“This was the brainchild of President Paul Kagame when he was the Chair of the Summit,” she emphasized.

The State of EAC Address is delivered once a year by the Chairperson of the Summit of EAC Heads of State.

The East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) which has been holding its plenary in Kigali since April 15, 2013 is expected to conclude on Thursday, April 25, 2013.
