The leader of the team from Tanzania Emanuel Motta from Origin Trails Company said the aim is to reach the summit to complete their goal of ensuring that every youth from Africa climbs the continent’s tallest mountain.


He said youths from African countries intend to climb the mountain to take up the message on the “Africa we Want” and its implementation, whilst others with placards with drawings carrying that message.

The Director of Great Africa Art Banner from Zimbabwe Munyaradzi Muzenda said for the first time youths from all African countries will scale up the mountain during the AU celebrations in May 2020 as a sign to maintain unity in the continent.

Representative from Uganda’s Sister Sister Organization Ayaa Musuya said the campaign is underway to mobilize youths to climb Mt Kilimanjaro via social networks to register them.

According to Ayaa, winners who will emerge in the competition will join with those who registered themselves to climb to carry up the “Africa we Want” massage to the summit.
