Soccer: A Rallying Point in AfricaSoccer is a celebrated and cherished past time in Africa. Even the African Union which was formed by the founding fathers of the African Liberation Movement, people such as Kwame Nkrumah, Jomo Kenyatta and the late Emperor Haile Selassie, thought of a plan of bringing cohesiveness within the divergent African communities emerging from colonialism and its attendant vestiges of linguistic sub cultural divide; saw soccer as a transcendent centripetal impetus in forging closer relationships over the unfortunate legacy of the schismatic differences.
