Between Tradition and Gender Rights

While our present social advancement has yielded democratic dividends, amongst them,  freedom, human rights, including gender rights, ironically, the same positive social development has put a strong challenge to the culture.

Is the Wind of Change Blowing Towards Angola and Liberia?

When the former Defence Minister of Angola Joao Lourenco became the country’s President last year and vowed to eradicate nepotism and corruption in his country, very few people believed his seriousness. Not that Joao Lourenco is considered a liar. Not necessarily so. The fact is that many Africans have grown used to and indeed tired and fed up of sweet-mouthed African leaders, who promise paradise to their subjects only to give them hell on earth.
