Kata Kata’s Exclusive Interview With the ICC Chief Prosecutor Dr. Fatou Bensouda (Part 1)

Recently, our research has shown that the International Criminal Court (ICC) is perceived negatively in many quarters. More worrisome still, almost 80% of our respondents do, in fact, not know clearly what the organization stands for or its legal boundary. It is a common belief amongst many that the ICC is not only an aggressor, but it is also equally regarded as the imperialistic tool of the West. That is not all. The International Criminal Court hinders political and…

Africa: Equity and Equality for all?

For a meaningful democracy to flourish anywhere, there must be equity, equality, and fairness. More often than not, the terms equity and equality are used interchangeably, even though they are different but related.
