Eastern Africa Time (EAT)

The differences of the several time zones to each other are always specified in relation to the "Universal Time Coordinated" (UTC), the time on the prime meridian (zero longitude). Phoenix, for example, is on the 122nd degree of longitude west and thus in the UTC-7 time zone. The Eastern Africa Time is consistent with UTC +3.

The Eastern Africa Time does not have an associated daylight saving time.
The Eastern Africa Time applies to 8 countries.

Although the timezone is named "Eastern Africa Time", it has mostly politcal reasons. It simply means that eg beginning and ending of daylight saving time always uniformly apply here. There are some other countries, in which the clock strikes just the same hour. These countries have the same temporal distance to UTC (Universal Time Coordinated):
