    Can you use the metropolitan area population instead of the city proper? Los Angeles has a metro area population of 13 million.

    Its a good video but when you feel like you have to make comparisons for every city with an equal sized US city. You make the video boring and quite honestly not universal.

    Could anyone explain what median age means if they watch this video and see this comment? Even as a geography "nerd", I have a hard time understanding median age.

    When I was a kid, we had the East African Community which included Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. We also had East African Railways and Harbours, East African Airways and East African Industries. Our parents could worked in any of the three countries and we used the same currency. We grew up with Kenya and Ugandan neighbors as my dad worked with the East African Railways at the time! In fact the area where E A Community HQ was located in Nairobi is still known as "Community."

    Sudan still see south Sudan as apart of the country and I doubt that Sudan will let it happen they also don't call south Sudan in their media with that name they just say south

    Another thing: coffee. The East African Federation would be one of, if not the biggest grower of coffee in the world. They would have much more leverage over the price of coffee as a unified whole and have the resources to start roasting their own, rather than exporting the dried berries to European nations like Italy. Given the European reliance on East African coffee this would be a major economic benefit to the newly united nation, and potentially a unifying part of the new national culture.

    I appreciate informative aspect of the video however, I disagree with the religious divisive perspective, we as African have coexisted for centuries religion was barely a divisive issue the success of other economic blocks such as the CEDEAO are good examples

    am Kenyan and this is only a dream. Honestly each state wants to rule themselves and if we having trouble in actualizing custom policies (ask Magufuli how he burnt Kenyan chicken lol) how can we achieve a political federation?!...personally i believe a customs union is possible and will spur economic growth but no way a president from say S.Sudan is ever ruling over Kenya. We are happy to remain independent.

    You obviously have no idea of metropolitan areas and economic scale. For example metropolitan LA has a population of 18million and Chicago nearly 10million. unthought out videos do more to spread misinformation which can lead to disastrous consequences. Sorry dude

    Lol are you kidding me? What they gonna fund their military and economics with..? Fucking food scraps? Dont make me laugh lol. And their currency? Welp guess thats going back to the slavery trade with fucking shells as currency. This country is gonna fail just like most african countries. Uganda is a dead meme itself, dont make the other 5 a dead meme aswell.
