From African Unity to African Dictator's Clubs | How the OAU was formed.

2 weeks ago

In May 1963, thirty-two independent African States, with genuine hopes and visions for the continent of Africa, came together in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, to create the Organization of African Unity (OAU).

Thirty-two countries founded the organisation, a further 21 states joined gradually over the years, with South Africa becoming the 53rd member on 23 May 1994.

The OAU started its operations on 13 September 1963, when its Charter was adopted, committed to helping bring about change and freedom to many African countries and restore the dignity of African people.

But the origins of the OAU were difficult in fact. The idea almost collapsed before it could get off the ground because of ideological differences.

This episode will look at the origins of the OAU and why it failed.

  1. You can't unite a society when tyrants are killing their own people and looting their taxes. Every country in Africa except Tanzania & recently Malawi is ruled by a gang of thieves. The heads of these gangs call themselves presidents. So shameful degrading & insulting.

  2. Why is it you always put Nkrumah before Hail Selassie, the head and the father of the OAU,and United Nations
    i wonder if people feel that flag that Ghana rise in 1957 did drop out of the Sky, that is the flag of the black christ
    th 5 point black star represents the 5 bleeding wounds christ bare,,In 1966 March 3 the Queen visited Jamaica,and the
    man who says his the Christ gave Elizabeth the same Ghana flag, with the R sign and lion symbol and she knew what time it was because she saw the same
    flag replace her flag in 1957,Its no coincidence she left Jamaica on March 6 1966,on Ghanas Independence day, and in April 1966 on the 21st day
    of the first Month Haile Selasie visits Jamaica, and meets this individual man ho says his the Christ,,,The Man say, in 1962 when Jamaica got its
    independence they should have rose the same flag as Ghana,because just like Ghana ,Jamaica also flew the british flag,,but as you can see that the Jamaica flag has a big X and X is wrong and R is right, The Rmon come and rise the Bobo Shanti kingdom,in jamaica, Shanti Deva came and
    very few people understood at that time but the world will soon declare this mon as the Queen said in 1966,that it is an individual man in this
    country no one is to molest and shall soon be lord over her laws,so dont forget and never forget that Queen Elizabeth left Jamaica on the 6 of
    March Ghanas 9th independence day,,,,not the 7th or 8th but the 9th,
