  1. Swahili is a good choice to use as a business language for Africa. But personally I like to see the top four dominant languages be put up to a vote first. Then the AU can push each government to start having it taught in various schools .

  2. There’s growing up in Africa, a generation which has no first-hand knowledge of colonial rule. These boys and girls, born since independence, will find it difficult to believe that there was a time when Africans could not walk in certain parts of every town, unless they had business there as servants. The limitations on our freedom, the crimes against our dignity as human beings, will seem to them remote and unreal.It’s cheering to think that when they meet an European it will never occur to them to touch the imaginary forelock, or bow in servility, as some of our older Men still do, so hard is it to break long-established habits. The social effects of colonialism are more insidious than the political and economic. This is because they go deep into the minds of people and therefore take longer to eradicate. The Europeans relegated us to the position of inferiors in every aspect of our everyday life.

  3. Afrika will never be secure until Afrika comes together and form an Afrikan Military Army. Unless the world sees Afrika with a strong military, Afrika will never be respected or secure.

  4. There should be an African declaration of unity written in Swahili that points to our right to determination as African family of nations. This can be the basis of Unifying with Swahili

  5. I don't want to learn swahili. My ancestors didn't speak swahili and it is not our language. Let those speaking it to teach it to their descent. Note that language is bound to the culture. In West, North Africa, there is no swahili there. It is not the same culture across the continent. Why do you want them to speak swahili now???? While it is good and crucial to preserve African languages, it is the best to keep national official western languages to avoid being isolated and have communication issues. Remember: the world is more globaised than never before.

  6. Hmmn. Swahili uniting the whole of Africa sounds like a pipe-dream to me. There are so many languages in Africa. Even in East/Southern Africa. Maybe it's possible in that part of Africa but in West Africa, there are about 2 to 3 widely spoken languages by virtue of the population of those who speak them as 1st/2nd/3rd languages. This does not include pidgin english. I think Hausa & Yoruba dominate b'cos they are each spoken across at least 3/4 countries in West Africa.

  7. Why do we need to learn kiswahili for us to live with each other in prosperity and harmony? Africa is blessed with a diversity of traditions, languages and cultures. What we need is to learn to work together, respect our cultures and STOP CORRUPTION as well as Human Rights abuses. We don't need to learn any language we are all human beings and we must strive for global peace and unity.

  8. Amazing how the one and only Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah was the First leader to choose Swahili as a common language and deemed it most practical, easier and much more feasible, to forward the Afrikan unification venture, decades ago. I’m learning Swahili at present.
