African Stand is a 24/7 information and news website for the latest breaking news, Africa news headlines, and top stories from inside and outside of Africa.
African Stand is an independent online news site, established in 2018 for the purpose of presenting balanced coverage of events, and promoting the best interests of Africa.
It owes allegiance to no political party, ethnic community, religion, or another interest group. Its primary commitment is to the integrity and sovereignty of the Federation of Kenya, and beyond that to the unity and sovereignty of Africa.
African Stand is a liberal online news site, committed to the best traditions and ideals of republican democracy. It believes that it is the responsibility of the African continent not only to protect but also to create the conditions, political, social, economic, and cultural, in which all Africans may achieve their highest potential as human beings.
It is committed to the principle of individual freedom but believes that all Africans have duties as well as rights.
African Stand does not, in principle, object to the ideology of free enterprise, since this would be inconsistent with its commitment to individual liberty and freedom.
But it believes that Africa must intervene judiciously in the economic life of the continent, in order to minimize the adverse effects of free enterprise and ensure that less privileged citizens have reasonable and fair access to the basic necessities of life.
African Stand believes that Africa is a legitimate continent that The African Union recognizes 54 countries while the United Nations recognizes 54 as well.
