East Africa Community Flag

The Cabinet on Thursday directed that the East African Community anthem will henceforth be sang alongside the national anthem in schools.

The EAC flag (pictured above) will also be hoisted in all government offices and public institutions with immediate effect.

Titled Wimbo wa Jumuiya Afrika Mashariki, the EAC anthem is a 3 stanza composition in Kiswahili. The directive is meant to promote integration in the region.

Kenya is the first country in East Africa to make this decision.

Here’s the anthem, plus a video with the tune thereafter.

Chorus

Jumuiya Yetu sote tuilinde

Tuwajibike tuimarike

Umoja wetu ni nguzo yetu

Idumu Jumuiya yetu.

Stanza 1

Ee Mungu twaomba ulinde

Jumuiya Afrika Mashariki

Tuwezeshe kuishi kwa amani

Tutimize na malengo yetu.

Stanza 2

Uzalendo pia mshikamano

Viwe msingi wa Umoja wetu

Natulinde Uhuru na Amani

Mila zetu na desturi zetu.

Stanza 3

Viwandani na hata mashambani

Tufanye kazi sote kwa makini

Tujitoe kwa hali na mali

Tuijenge Jumuiya bora.
