The Heat A Borderless Africa

African leaders are working to create what some people are calling a ‘borderless Africa’ by introducing a single African passport, allowing free movement between all countries on the continent.

The African Union, which represents 54 states, wants to abolish the need for Africans to get visas to visit African countries by 2018.

And by next year, the AU wants to establish a free trade area across the continent.

For more CCTV’s Angelo Coppola reports from Johannesburg.

Tonight’s panel discusses the future of a ‘borderless Africa’:

  • Wanyama Masinde, director at the Centre for Regional Integration
  • David Stanton, director general of Trade-Mark East Africa, a trade organization aimed at growing prosperity in East Africa
  • Adetunji Omotola, founder of the Guild of Nigerian Professionals in South Africa
  • Edward Brown, director of Policy Advisory Services at African Center for Economic Transformation based in Ghana
