East African Community (EAC) Affairs PS reveals plans to transform the body into a political confederation.

Speaking during an interview at Spice FM on Tuesday, February 27, (EAC) Affairs Principle Secretary (PS) Abdi Dubat stated that EAC was in the process of formulating a Constitution to govern the confederation. 

According to the PS, a committee was tasked with gathering information and conducting stakeholder engagement in all the member states, before making the first draft of the Constitution. 

“We have a team of eminent persons led by the former Chief Justice of Uganda and Amos Wako (former Attorney General – Kenya) who is the Vice Chair. They are co-working in a Constitution for the confederation,” Dubat stated. 

“They are doing stakeholder engagements and have so far done that in Burundi, Uganda, and Kenya. They are going to do this with every partner state,” he stated, highlighting the need to streamline business operations within the region.

The revelation comes after President William Ruto through a statement released on Monday, noted that the East African nations were working towards deepening the diplomatic relations between the seven states. 

“Kenya and Uganda are committed to the deepening of the long-established diplomatic and economic ties between our two countries. This relationship includes bringing all the seven East African Community nations closer in their ultimate goal to form the East African Political Federation,” the statement read in part. 

The East African Community (EAC) is a regional intergovernmental organization with seven member states which include Burundi, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Kenya, and Rwanda.
