The East African Community (EAC) is the regional intergovernmental organisation of the Republics of Kenya, Uganda, the United Republic of Tanzania, Republic of Rwanda and Republic of Burundi with its headquarters in Arusha, Tanzania. The EAC is an integral part of the African Economic Community.

Pierre Nkurunziza, the President of the Republic of Burundi, is the EAC's current Chairman, to my knowledge never been a women chairperson[i].
