___________________________________________


                                                             Listen to the
                      
National Anthems of All
               African Countries


Every day a different African country's national     Anthem will play the entire day on this page.   This gives us an opportunity to listen to all the
National Anthems of each country in Africa.   There are 53 countries in Africa.  Some have
said that Liberia has one of the best Anthems
in the world.  Now we can listen to all the 
National Anthems of Africa and compare ours
with theirs.

The other reason for this exercise is to provide our people the opportunity to listen to, and to learn about other African countries, see their flags, hear their National Anthems, and enjoy the very beautiful music we call, a country's National Anthem. Much of our information comes from Nationalanthem.info.    
Please take note of the dates each

country's Anthem is played.  We begin with
South Africa on the 5th of August and end with
São Tomé and Principe on September 24, 2013.

If you want to know more about any of the
African countries, just click on the name of 
the particular country below on the left in blue among the list of 53 countries and you will have the information right there at your finger tip.

__________________________________________


One interesting factor about the listing of the  African countries in the order in which they are listed.  They are listed with the country with the highest per capital income above and the lowest per capital income at the bottom of the list. Liberia is 6 up from the bottom.   Total number of countries is 53. _____________________________________________
English Lyrics 1. Oh Uganda! may God uphold thee,
We lay our future in thy hand.
United, free,
For liberty
Together we’ll always stand.

2. Oh Uganda! the land of freedom.
Our love and labour we give,
And with neighbours all
At our country’s call
In peace and friendship we’ll live.

3. Oh Uganda! the land that feeds us
By sun and fertile soil grown.
For our own dear land,
We’ll always stand,
The Pearl of Africa’s Crown.
