Off the back of a multinational congress hosted in the Republic of the Congo’s capital of Brazzaville last week, a conglomerate of central African countries has aligned in founding the African Global Security Foundation (AGSF). Chaired by former Ugandan PM Hon. Amama Mbabazi and co-chaired by diplomat-entrepreneur, founder of the Brazzaville Foundation, Jean-Yves Ollivier, the AGSF’s inaugural members include the republic of the Congo, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Mauritius, Senegal, Togo and Uganda.

The brainchild of Jean-Yves Ollivier, headquartered in Dakar, Senegal, and jointly realized by Ugandan President H.E.Yoweri Kaguta Museveni and long-standing Congolese President H.E. Denis Sassou Nguesso, the AGSF will be open to subscription from all African states. Its stated mission is to promote regional cooperation among members’ foreign policies towards the formation of a safer, more secure and stable African continent.

With the founding of AGSF ratified in last week’s discussions, all that remains is to secure financing for its work- likely to be paid via a system of national subscription from member states.
