Happy Africa Day!
On 25 May 1963, Africa made history with the foundation of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) the precursor to what is the current African Union (AU).
Africa Day is intended to celebrate, recognize and acknowledge the successes in respect of the formation of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU and AU) from its creation in May 25, 1963 in the combat against colonialism, racism, apartheid, and the progression of the continent. Africa has made strides and continues to work collectively, while recognizing upon common challenges that the continent face in a global environment and economy.
Therefore, the world celebrates the 25th of May as African Unity embraced through activities such as bazaars, activities and events to showcase African cultural diversity in various aspects. To date, the AU remains guided by its vision of “An Integrated, Prosperous and Peaceful Africa, driven by its own citizens and representing a dynamic force in the global arena.” Happy Africa Day to all!
