Author: Raymond Ncube, Subject 2 Citizen (S2C) Ambassador, Zimbabwe
Voices from the South E-Newsletter: May 2013
Although the notion of an African Renaissance is not a new idea, young voices from across the continent continue to carry the call for a philosophical and political movement to end the violence, elitism, corruption and poverty that seem to plague the African continent. In this month’s “Voices from the South,” Raymond Ncube, a young Zimbabwean and an Ambassador for the African Alliance of YMCA’s “Subject 2 Citizen” movement, explores what it means to be an African citizen, and how young people have the power to bring about a new era of African Renaissance.
