The #FocusNationAfrica series is an attempt to interest the people of Africa in taking greater interest in the affairs of the continent through celebrating the national days of selected countries as well as discussing issues of a broader pan-African concern.
Three sessions were hosted in 2018 with the focus being on Botswana, Angola and Kenya.
Experts say that greater intra-African cooperation has the potential of helping to accelerate social and economic development for all of the peoples and nations of the continent.
