DAY OF AFRICAN CHILD
Over 10 thousand black children had marched the street of Soweto, sometimes in 1976, demanding for quality education and rights to be taught in their local language.
Hundreds of them were shot, gunned and killed, while thousands were injured.
Every 16th June is set aside as remembrance of those black children killed for asking for quality education. And is tagged DAY OF AFRICAN CHILD.
This year's theme is timely and critical - " Humanitarian Action in Africa; Children's Rights First". Therefore, we are calling on African Union Commission, not just to make a lofty theme than translating this year's theme into concrete reality.
#Africa must not leave #African children behind. Children's Rights First.
Quality #education is human #rights .
May the souls of those children continue to rest in peace.
