President of Uganda Yoweri Museveni has come out to clarify on a metaphor “the PanAfricanist house” of the East African Federation he used in his speech recently.
During the nation address on Tuesday evening, President Museveni stressed the benefits of a united East African community saying it would be better to have borders between member states serving as “rooms in a PanAfrican House.”
Museveni said under such a concept, it would have been easier for East African states to deal with adversaries like COVID-19.
However, a section of the social media enthusiasts have since vulgarized the president’s metaphor to demean the integrity of some East African States.
“This is naturally a big house with rooms that have got all the necessary facilities each. If it is the sitting room, it will have its own washroom. If the dining room, it will have its own place of convenience. If it is one of the bedrooms, each will have its own washroom.” President Museveni said.
Museveni noted that those that tried to misrepresent his statement should know that they are not assisting the cause of the PanAfricanists and advised them to be positive their interactions.
