Africa cannot achieve sustainable development while SADR pleeding (Culture Minister)

Johannesburg, May 26, 2015(SPS) - Minister of Culture Ms. Jadija Hamdi said “Africa cannot achieve sustainable development while part of it is still pleading, as is the case of the Sahrawi Republic (SADR).”
“A free Africa cannot develop or achieve sustainable development, while part of it still pleading,” stated the Minister, in a speech delivered at the Fourth African Conference on Culture, held from 25 to 27 May 2015 in Johannesburg, South Africa.
The minister point out that defending cultural diversity is a moral necessity inherent in human dignity, underlining that without respecting these requirements, Africa will remain hostage to the colonial past.
