The 2019 East African Regional conference brings together proponents of classical liberal ideas from Kenya, Tanzania, and Burundi, Uganda, Ethiopia, Eritrea among other African and non-Africa countries ranging from students in institutions of higher learning, the corporate world (private sector) , and civil service. Speakers come from all walks of life with interests in free markets, open borders, rule of law, limited government, individual and property rights, among others. Ideally, anyone willing to listen, learn and have an opinion on liberty ideas is usually welcome.
Among other ways, the regional conference presents a great forum for attendees to create awareness on their existence while spreading its ideologies, present a great opportunity of learning about classical liberal ideas from seasoned libertarians and proponents of liberal ideas from East Africa and across the world. Participants also get to debate and engage one another on Liberty ideas relative to current and emerging issues across East Africa and the world. We also get to take a back seat and review our progress and achievements for the past financial year in advocating for and spreading ideas of liberty in the specter of the rule of law, free markets, tolerance, limited governments, civil society, skepticism of power, peace, individualism and property rights. Ultimately, the RC presents a good opportunity for East Africans to network, essentially making new friends.
On a social side of it, for first time travellers to Kenya, it will be an opportunity to have a view of the beautiful city, and visit fascinating places such as the Nairobi National Park and the Giraffe Center; Ngong hills, Oloolua Nature Trails, Elephant hills, Karen Blixen Museum, and also enjoy the colorful tribes of Kenya at Bomas of Kenya. And also add to the free meals, and drinks at the socials! Get a change to travel across the city in the famous Kenyan matatus, and enjoy the matwana culture to visit the two Rivers mall, East Africa’s largest shopping mall.
