By Tobias Mudzingwa

Dean of African Diplomats and Democratic Republic of Congo Ambassador to Zimbabwe Dr. Mwawapanga Mwanananga says the dream of having a ‘United States of Africa’, should never be forgotten.

In an interview ahead of this years’ commemorations of the Africa Day on Monday the 25th of May, Ambassador Mwanananga said there is no going back adding that a United States of Africa can still be a reality.

’’that is what we have to fight, for now, we should not have borders between the African states and witnessed acts of deportation and xenophobia’’

He described the existing borders as imaginary lines which should be removed to allow free movement of people without one being required to carry a visa.

This year’s Africa Day will run under the theme: silencing the guns, creating a conducive environment for Africa’s development.
