“Therefore all the countries that seem to be in arrears of their annual assess contribution to the East African budget, I would like to call on them to believe that integration is the way forward,” Kalonzo said.

“Some of us have worked so hard for this integration I recall I was the first chair of the Ministerial committee that was asked to start a mode of East African cooperation,” he observed.

“After presenting our report, we very quickly moved to Arusha and since that time, this community has grown but these regional suspicions must be quickly addressed so that if anybody is feeling uncomfortable his issues should be sorted.”

He added that, “The East Africans have made a tremendous step to cross over and achieve the very important factor of freedom of movement and establishment.”
