NAIROBI, Jan. 4 (Xinhua) -- The East African Community (EAC) member states will pursue a political confederation as a final step in the regional
integration process, a Kenyan official said on Wednesday.
Judy Njeru, a senior assistant director in Kenya's Ministry of EAC Affairs, said in Nairobi the member states have decided on a confederation model instead
of a political federation as earlier envisaged.
"The partner states are of the view that a confederation where countries will retain sovereignty in some areas is desirable," Njeru said.
EAC member states include Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi and South Sudan.
"Experts will then be tasked to advise on the areas to be covered under the pooled sovereignty," Njeru said.
Njeru said that the coming into force of the EAC political confederation will have a major impact on the political structure, monetary and fiscal policies of
the member states.
However, she said all EAC citizens will need to be sensitized before the plan is fully implemented.
In Kenya, a Cabinet Memorandum on the EAC Political Confederation has been developed in order to enhance public sensitization.
Njeru said that the confederacy will be achieved through gradual and incremental cooperation in a number of specified areas such as defense, security
and foreign affairs.
"Measures toward this form of cooperation are already taking place through the harmonization of the education systems and curricula as well as cooperation
in health," she added.

Boys at an elementary school in south China's Guangzhou City were forced to apply first before going to the toilet even during breaks as a punishment for
failing to follow a dress code, according to Guangzhou Daily.
The rule has been enforced since Dec. 12 for a class of third graders in Shuiyinlu Elementary School in Guangdong Province. In the 10-minute
break under armour micro g limitless tr 2 sale , children have been required by the head teacher Liu to sit on their seats and make an application if they want
to answer the call of nature.
Reports say Liu made the requirement after the class lost a collective honor because several boys forgot to wear red scarfs.
The harsh requirement has lead to discomfort among some pupils.
Parents said some boys now suffer from urinary problems. One child had to relieve himself in the classroom, bringing him shame and causing him to return
home in tears.
Teacher Liu is strict with students under armour hovr sale , according to parents, ordering students as well as parents to make written apologies for poor performances in a subject.
Several parents once wrote a joint letter demanding another head teacher when the students were first graders under armour fat tire sale , accusing her of lacking compassion and pursuing fame through improper means.
But the teacher said she has more than 20 years of teaching experience and parents have no right to decide whether her methods are good or bad.
She refused to give an explaination when a reporter tried to reach her.
Education authorities in Guangzhou's Yuexiu District said they had started an investigation.
BEIJING, Dec. 7 (Xinhua) -- A trial over a patent dispute between Apple and a Chinese phone maker opened Wednesday in Beijing.
Apple and Beijing-based phone retailer Zoomflight are suing the Beijing Intellectual Property Bureau and Chinese phone maker Baili after the bureau
