Respected Human Rights Advocate, Lawyer Francis Xavier Sosu believes the biggest hindrance to human rights in Africa is ignorance.
According to him, Africans have been reduced to begging for their rights because they do not understand that they are entitled to it.
“The reason why we keep begging for those rights is because we do not know that they are fundamental human rights,” he said.
It is typical for communities to send high profile delegations to the Presidency to beg for development or plead with a visiting leader for development projects.
TV screens in Africa are constantly awashed with citizens begging for one amenity or the other with the media dedicating a significant portion of airtime and space to drawing attention to the flagrant disregard of this right.
