The role of young people in the fight against corruption in Africa

The population of the African continent is getting young and younger and young people are almost always in the forefront of innovation, the technological space and coming up with solutions to problems that plague the continent. In fact, analysts project that by 2050, half of the population of the continent will be young people. But their fight is not being felt in an attempt to destroy the cancer that is corruption, so the question becomes how can young people in their majority stop this systematic looting of the same resources that are meant to benefit not only them, but the rest of the population.

Government resignation in case of failure: An unthinkable act in Africa

The resignation of a government in case of failure is a rare phenomenon in Africa, which seems to be inexistent. This act perceived by many as honorable, remains the least shared view by African governments. In the West, the initiative is nevertheless conceivable and recurrent when the objectives assigned to the government are not achieved.
With a prime minister appointed by the head of state, the government is an organ linked to the executive power. Working in close collaboration with the parliament, her role is to lead the politics of the Nation by putting into practice decisions made in ministerial councils. The penalty imposed on a government that has failed in its prerogatives is the request for his resignation. Many other reasons can open the door to this path.

Can you get out of prostitution and still start a home?

Prostitution as a survival strategy is one of the means used by young women in street situations. Canadian studies on the subject estimate between 12% and 32% the number of young women living on the street engaged in prostitution. These young women do it either by themselves or by relatives: relatives, friends, and even partners in love (Damant et al., 2006). These as emphasized by Messervier, 1999 may also have an important role in the process of exit from prostitution.

Presidential elections-2018 in Madagascar: a diary of monitoring mission

I was fortunate to take part along with AFRIC in the election monitoring mission in Madagascar, which took place on 7th of November.
36 international observers from all over the world represented AFRIC election monitoring mission at this milestone in Madagascar. Why was it a milestone?
After the political and economic crisis of 2001 and 2009, the Malagasy state counterpoised some stability and economic growth. Reports from IMF (International Monetary Fund) and the World Bank show that the current economic situation is quite favorable. That's why the choice of the Malagasy people is more important now than ever.
