"Let us provide another corrective to Socialism, and prevent the Wealth we are beginning to build in our own countries from being used for the purpose of acquiring national power or prestige. Let us make sure that it is used solely for raising the standards of our people. Let us not allow the Wealth that we are creating to live side by Poverty and tolerate that Poverty. " - Julius K. Nyerere
JM BUSHA 54 Social Media
JM BUSHA 54 Races is for Peace & Unity in Africa and the world. We call for citizenry participation in socio-economic development and political governance of countries. We exist to promote working democracies. We empower, encourage and enable citizens to hold leaders accountable to the people, uphold the laws of a country, and take responsibility for their actions.
One of the ways we achieve this is by enrolling individuals, organisations and governments to sign our peace pledge which reads.
“I am for peace, harmony and unity and commit myself not to be involved in any activity: – corruption, discrimination, banditry, destructive exploitation of another human being and natural resources for selfish gain and will not make any decision that may cause instability, social unrest, poverty and other socio-economic and political problems in the country."
The Peace Pledge is read by the country's Lead Peace Pledge Ambassador and delivered to the leader of the country on Africa Day, 25th of May each year - as a reminder and commitment to individuals and our communities at large that it is our collective responsibility to bring peace and unity. As each African country pledges peace on the day of the 25th of May every year which is the day of the founding of the AU (then called the Organisation of African Unity - OAU in 1963). JM BUSHA 54 Races celebrates Africas' diversity, achievements and potential through arts, cultural, musical and sporting activities. Proceeds from this event are used towards affording deserving and capable students scholarships to further there education, fund innovative ideas that have a socio-economic impact on communities as well as for peacekeeping missions, mediations, reconciliation, conflict resolution and crisis management work in Africa.
To promote peace and unity through education, arts, culture, music and sports;
To engage and enrol individuals and institutions to actively promote and pledge peace, unity, accountability and responsibility at all levels of society, organisations and governments; and
To raise funds for peacekeeping missions, mediation, reconciliation, conflict resolution and crisis management work in Africa, and elsewhere in the world.
To see and have a peaceful, prosperous and united people of Africa and the world.
It is time for Africa to re-evaluate itself and make changes where it needs to in order to change its fortune for the future.
