Climate change and food mark Africa Day in Rwanda

Climate change and food mark Africa Day in Rwanda

Kigali, May 24 (Prensa Latina) The climate change and food security mark the celebration in Rwanda of Africa Day (May 25) with an activity program organized all week here by the Pan-African Movement. In the media there will also be sensitization on nutrition issues and Africa Freedom Day´s background, the chairman of the Rwanda section of the Pan-African Movement, Protais Musoni, announced.

Musoni said that Africans and people of African descent and friends should celebrate the progress that the continent made towards the total freedom, including the attainment of political and economic independence.

However, he also said that it is an opportunity to highlight the challenges and that they must be addressed for Africa to be fully freed.

“The fight against hunger is one of the battles that Africa has been losing; every year, millions more Africans go hungry, food imports increase and malnutrition remains endemic. While we celebrate what we have achieved, Africans must seriously reflect on how a continent that owns the most fertile arable land cannot feed itself”, he lamented.

Chantal Ingabire, Director General of Planning at the Agriculture Ministry challenged young people to get involved in the sector.

May 25 was chosen as Africa Freedom Day because of the foundation by 31 heads of State on that day in 1963 of the African Unity Organization, which turned into the African Union (AU). Later, it was renamed Africa Day.
