The 25th May, 2022 marked World Africa Day 10th Year anniversary of the Heads of State and Government, Representatives of the AU, the West Indies, Latin and South America and varied representatives from the African Diaspora who met during the Global African Diaspora Summit in Sandton, Joburg, South Africa and the historic adoption of the AU-African Diaspora Declaration concerning the Diaspora, 6th Region of Africa.

The Roots-Synergy Roundtable which invited Pan-African organisations, civil society organisations, NGOs, CBOs, etc. has taken the initiative to come together to discuss and review 10 years after the Declaration was made and what decisive action or developments have been mobilised or achieved by the AU since its ratification.

The Pan-African Roots Synergy was initiated and spearheaded by Dr. David Horne of the Sixth Region Diaspora Caucus; Dr. Barryl A. Blekman of the AU African Diaspora 6th Region FWG Europe; Dr Chidebere Anelechi Ogbu of African Diaspora Union and Mrs Grace Abena James of 6th Region African Diaspora Alliance in Tanzania.

VPM Keturah Amoako will be presenting some of the work and achievements of SOAD which align with the Diaspora Declaration mandate and further seeks to create solid collaborations and partnerships at the Roots Synergy Roundtable with the organisations present through Africora Foundation International, SOAD’s not-for-profit organisation.  Africora’s aim is in support of the collective vision in the lobbying for the 22 seats assigned and dedicated for the African Diaspora within the Economic Social and Cultural Council (ECOSOCC) of the AU in order for the African Diaspora to be properly represented and have a voice in constructive, effective and actionable dialogue in the participation of the Diaspora in the areas of socio-economic and cultural development, education, repatriation and citizenship, reparations etc. in Africa.  Ambassador Jasmin Rowe and other members will be presenting other topics related to the subject matter.

Day 2 of the Roundtable commenced with Plenary statements, General debates with the panelists on subjects such as Reparations and Right of Return and thereafter Working Group Sessions and honouring African Liberation Day.
