East Africa: Brexit - Important Lessons to East Africa Overlooked

Britons' pull out of European Union has been extensively covered all over the world, more so, in East Africa, a region whose three founder members Britain colonised, and four of its member countries are affiliated to the Commonwealth. While the leave campaigners in the UK's referendum accused the "remain" camp of overplaying the repercussions of BREXIT, media houses in the EA region, confined their reports on the engines of globalisation-finance, technology trade, treaties, education, travelling and staying in the UK, underplaying as to why the British want to retain their say as a nation. At the centre of the referendum was mounting pressure within Conservative MPs and in the UK Independence Party (UKIP) who have been arguing that Britain has lost its say as a nation since 1975, when it voted to stay in the EU in a prior referendum. "The EU has changed a lot since then, gaining control over our daily lives," the British MPs kept on hammering the message in the Assembly, prompting the out gone Prime Minister David Cameroon to say: "It is time for the Britons to have their say."
