Staff and students are invited to join UCT’s Department of Social Development and the Institute for Justice and Reconciliation for a civic mobilisation dialogue on 18 July to discuss how young people can define the vision and lead the march towards a better Africa.
Dialogue co-convenor Associate Professor Ndangwa Noyoo maintains that even though a significant number of Africa’s problems emanate from slavery, colonialism and apartheid, there are those that are created by Africans themselves, and in particular Africa’s leaders.
“Africa’s youth, especially students, must challenge the dictatorial and tyrannical leaders who deny their own people access to basic human rights. Even though it is necessary to pursue decolonisation, it is equally important to confront our leaders on societal problems,” Noyoo said.
The event will take place on Tuesday, 18 July 2017, from 14:00 to 16:00 at the University of Cape Town, Beattie Building, Room 114.
Please contact Ndangwa Noyoo or call 021 650 3482 for further details.
