Insecurity - across a range of measures, including human insecurity in conflict and food insecurity—is intensifying across swaths of Africa, including particularly in conflict zones such as Nigeria, Cameroon, Ethiopia, DRC, South Sudan, Sudan, and Somalia.
Despite the localised interventions to combat insecurity, the central message of the 1998 UN report remains true today, Mr. Ban stated that: "Only Africa can provide solutions to Africa's problems."
Africa, in fact, had claimed much credit of the past decades' improvements following establishment of African Union in 2002 and the formation of a Peace and Security Council, a panel of senior dignitaries and several AU peacekeeping operations. Among these was an effort to establish an African standby peacekeeping force, ready to deploy at short notice. All fell apart since the shut down of Colonel Maumar Gaddafi of Libya.
Currently, many people in Africa are suffering due to political upheaval, fighting and oppression. To avert a return to conflict in countries emerging from war — and to prevent new outbreaks elsewhere — government conduct and capacities must improve across the continent. But the question of "what if the government conduct fails to improve?" is not being addressed in this concept!
For instance slave auctioning of African migrants in Libya shows how humans are deprived of all dignity. I think it's time for Africa to renounce all forms of ideology and prejudice that reduce people to merchandise through forming an African Union Army that can absorb cases like this because of us are human beings who bear the divine image.
Africa must wake up, the sleeping sons of Jacob, for what tomorrow may bring because yesterday we were kings; let's set a new pace for our young ones. Then, Africa will be at a glance we need with peace and stability.
I am proudly African.
