Pan Africanism must be taught at schools

2015-11-12 06:00

The beliefs of the PAC are base on Pan Africanism that is why we believe it must be a school subject.

Professor Robert Mangaliso Sobukwe said education to us means service to Africa, that is why we say it must be a school subject in Azania. Pan Africanism demands that the riches of Africa be used for the benefit, upliftment and enjoyment of the African people, that is is why we want it taught at schools. It was the dynamic forces of Pan Africanism led by giants like Nkwame Nkrumah, Patrice Lumumba, Prof Sobukwe, W Dubois, Jomo Kenyatta, George Padmore, Zephania Mothopeng, Anta Diop, Ntsu Mokhehle, Steve Bantu Biko and many others that conquered colonialism in Africa. This system means equitably sharing food, clothing, homes, education, health care, wealth, work, employment, land, security of life and happiness.According to Prof Sobukwe Pan Africanism is socialistic in content and democratic in form and would create new social order. The ultimate objective of Pan Africanists is to bring about the united states of Africa that woulg give birth to an indispensable unity of the African people.

Pan Africanism is anti-nobody - its purpose is to protect Africans from the repetition of the tragic experiences of slavery, colonialism, racism and apartheid which we suffered.

One of its leading exponents, Dr Edward Willmot Blyden, a person of African descent whose ancestors were taken into slavery in America coined the noble slogan “Africa for Africans, Africans for humanity and humanity for God, and God for All.”
