Hope everyone had a good weekend…I did!  And now I am back for yet another week of work.  So I met someone this weekend who is part of the panAfrican movement and it got thinking.  In theory, the idea of a united Africa – a United States of Africa if you will, sounds like a fabulous idea.  But just how practical is it?  I look at my country and we are busy fighting amongst ourselves.  We have stereotypes of different tribes, eyes are raised when someone from one community marries another.  As much as I would like to think that that is not the case and we are moving on and moving away from tribalism – its not the case.  People still think about these issues.  If we don’t have this internal unity, how can we unite as a continent?  Although what a great thing it would be to have a united Africa!  I just wonder if can happen right now.
