Merge? East African Community[edit]

if this is the same organization the articles should be merged: East African Community —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:34, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

Seems like a good idea. This article does not add anything that is not already said in the article of East African Community. --Kildor (talk) 07:42, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

What will the demonym be for the EAF? --LBCCCP (talk) 23:55, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

I think East African is a good guess. TheArchaeologist Say Herro 22:23, 27 February 2011 (UTC)


Per the Kenyan government, EAC national is the actual demonym/nationality for this federation: "most of the staff is to be of Kenyan/ EAC nationality or have resident status" [1]. Middayexpress (talk) 13:53, 5 July 2013 (UTC)

Do you know what the word demonym means? "EAC national" isn't a demonym. One could say that they are a "US national" or a "US citizen" or a "US resident", but that doesn't make any of these a demonym. If you want to claim that "EAC national" is the demonym, you need a source which supports this, not just happens to use the phrase. TDL (talk) 17:45, 5 July 2013 (UTC)

Unsuccessful. --1990'sguy (talk) 23:42, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

South Sudan[edit]

South Sudan is highlighted on the map in the infobox as being a member of the East African Federation, and it is mentioned in EAF's entry in the List of proposed state mergers article, but it is not mentioned anywhere else in this article. Nowhere does this article mention it as a supporting nation. WHy the discrepancy? --1990'sguy (talk) 23:50, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

Features section[edit]

Currently the opening paragraph of the Features section of the article claims that the proposed country would be both the 2nd and the 4th largest country in Africa and both the 10th and 17th largest in the world. Some citations and cleanup are needed. giso6150 (talk) 18:46, 20 August 2016 (UTC)
