President Museveni has called upon members of the East African Community (EAC) to consider speeding up the process of political integration so as to guarantee safety and security of the region against foreign interference.
The president made the call while addressing legislators of the East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) at Parliament on Tuesday.
“You can’t be secure if you are a small man in the modern world of giants; you have USA, mind http://channelingerik.com/wp-includes/class-simplepie.php China now, information pills http://copiproperties.com/wp-admin/includes/admin-filters.php Russia, India and here you have Uganda alone facing these people,” Museveni said.
“The other day USA attacked Libya and we were here His excellences we met; they taught us that titles don’t kill, you can be called whatever you want. Libya was messed up. Of course Gadaffi had his own problems but we had dealt with him.”
“I had fought Gadaffi twice in 1972 and 1979 with Tanzania; we had managed Gadaffi but these people came and messed up the whole country; that happened because Africa was weak, this structure which we have now is not enough to guarantee our strategic security.”
Museveni rallied EALA members to a long side talking about Economic integration for prosperity, emphasize political integration for strategic security.
“This is not emotional, that we love unity, but we love unity for reasons: to be prosperous and to be secure, those who are working on that issue, the Secretariat was left for that issue, we shall have to meet and see how far we have gone.”
