 The spirit of Ubuntu, Africa can drive itself -Shamoba

We have recently lost the Queen of the United Kingdom (Queen Elizabeth, whose full name is Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor) who was born on April 21, 1926 and died on September 8, 2022.

We had inquiries at the funeral, though. Why were African leaders taken by bus? Several images have appeared on social media platforms showing African leaders being transported to the location of Queen Elizabeth’s state funeral at Westminster Abbey in London. These leaders include Kenyan President William Ruto, Tanzanian President Samia Suluhu, and other African ministers like Zambian Minister of Justice Mulambo Haibe.

For me (Shamoba) I witnessed Ubuntu in our Africanism and witnessed two African leaders as well as other Nun Africans—such as Japanese , French and red and white Indians—being driven by other Africans on the spot. Together as the Ubuntu brothers, we demonstrated to the outside world that Africa is one continent, much as it would have been preferable to have the Russian president riding in the same motorcade as Americans at the time, but it is currently banned. #taboos

Let love be the guide as Africans unite as one, permit citizens of other African nations to visit our neighbors without a visa, and allow us to exchange our respective currencies. For instance, I can purchase things in Tanzania without having to convert my Zambian money into Tanzanian cash. Many thanks
