African Mathematical Union
The African Mathematical Union or Union Mathematique Africaine is an African organization dedicated to the development of mathematics in Africa. It was founded in 1976 in Rabat, Morocco, during the first Pan-African Congress of Mathematicians with Henri Hogbe Nlend as its first President. Another key figure in its early years was George Saitoti, later a prominent Kenyan politician.
Since 1978 the Union has published the journal Afrika Matematica (ISSN 1012-9405), has been edited by Daouda Sangare until 2009.
