Brexit is not all gloomy in relation to Africa. The Brooklings Instituted outlined a number ways Africa could suffer from Britain leaving the European Union.

It outlined three areas:

  • It claims the biggest consequence will be Britain ending its engagement with the continent.
  • The institute argues that another area Africa could suffer is in development assistance.
  • Lastly the authors further argued that Brexit could decrease trade volumes between UK and Africa.

However, Peter Kisitu, writing in Uganda's Monitor Newspaper outlined some benefits Brexit present to Africa.

He contends that the EU frustrated Africa's attempts to add value to it raw materials through it trade policies. In addition, he notes that Brexit will allow Britain to re-engage with Commonwealth countries.

"Africa’s efforts to add value to raw materials continue to be frustrated by EU trade policies," he said.

"Leaving the EU would allow Britain to rekindle and re-engage with independent Commonwealth countries, and strike fairer trade deals which would better reflect Britain’s role as a leader of free market," he added.
