Economical and Defence Alliance
Commonwealth of Free States of Africa
The African Federation also known as the "African League for Peace and Prosperity"; is an Alliance of Sovereign African States, it’s aims and purpose are to promote democracy, freedom and peace in Africa.
Chapter I. INTRODUCTION
Like the phoenix that revives from its ashes so does the Sovereign States of Central Kongo, Kabinda, Great Kasai, United Kivu and Katanga, rejuvenated under a new Defence, Cultural and Economical Alliance, The Great African Federation it aims to be a “de facto” alliance for cooperation in the mutual defence and further secure our national and traditional borders in existence since time immemorial, and to promote and preserve the Cultural awareness and identity of its local native Tribes.
One of the main aims of the Alliance is to enable and to promote the Rule of Law and to implement the practice of transparency of Good Governance in all areas and territories by them controlled and governed.
Africa came from far. Along the years it survived from a lot of changes it suffered. Which changes have affected individuals’ groups. The colonisation is one of the phenomena that deeply affected human beings. Ethnical groups that formed powerful and organised Kingdoms were dissected and mixed up with other ethnics to make artificial countries which have proven difficult to administer and govern.
This mixture originated a progressive loss of identity and culture in a constantly evolving world. Therefore several methods have been set up to keep up original cultural elements from generation to generation. People lost in their past are even appealing to genealogy trees in order they find out their origins.
Unjustly split by European Colonial powers, the Traditional Nations of Central Africa and its People have become spread and found themselves misplaces in different countries and countless its children taken around the world as slaves. And in most countries they were attached to they are mistreated by the local governments which are more interested in sacking their lands’ wealth than in improving their conditions of life.
We believe that there is a need in the African People to know their fellows, each other necessities and join strengths in order to come out of this neo-slavery. And this Institution stands for that. In order for this our Nation to progress and move on it is necessary for its borders to be reshaped from the actual artificial ones created by European foreigners during the XIX century.
