Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has asked regional leaders to emulate Kenya in rejecting boundaries defined by colonialists and allow a borderless Africa to spur socio-economic transformation.

The DP said easing movement will enhance seamless trade under the African Continental Free Trade Area Agreement and other among other collaborations for the benefit of the people of Africa.

“We reject being defined by the boundaries of colonialists. That is why Kenya has removed Visa requirements for Africans visiting our nation,” he said.

“We want to grow beyond the borders of our country because there is more to gain in breaking boundary barriers than closed-door policies.”

DP Gachagua spoke at Amaan Complex Stadium in Zanzibar during the celebrations of the 60th Anniversary of the Zanzibar Revolution.

The DP represented President William Ruto at the celebrations attended by Presidents Yoweri Museveni (Uganda), Paul Kagame, (Rwanda), the hosts – the United Republic of Tanzania’s Dr Samia Suluhu Hassan and Zanzibar’s Dr Hussein Mwinyi as well as Burundi Prime Minister Gervais Ndirakobuca, among other regional leaders.
