Abstract
The purpose of this study is to find the contribution of the unity of Africans and their descendant in the diaspora. Such unity is merely a means to the ultimate goal, which is the development and transformation of our people and the continent as a whole. The ultimate goals of such a political structure must be those of sustainable development, peace, security, growth, democracy and transformation of the continent. The source of our findings in order to achieve our objectives was obtained from secondary data and a survey was conducted by way of administering questionnaires. However, it is recommended that to achieve Africa unity, African leaders must also consider the issuing of Regional Visas (ECOWAS Visa, EAC Visa, SADC/COMESA Visa, etc) and the abolishment of individual country visas. This would also enable foreign investors the opportunity to invest in African and also encourage visitors to use a single visa thereby avoiding the long visa queues at various African embassies. Finally, there should be a common currency and Regional trade between African States.
