US president Barack Obama is winding up his African tour. Obama challenged Africa to do away with retrogressive cultural beliefs, that have for a long time robbed the girl child her rights. President Barack Obama says promotion of gender equality in the empowerment of the youth is key to the progressiveness of any economy.
Obama also urged Africans to end corruption which he termed as “cancer of corruption”. He admits that even America is corrupt but in third world countries it is too much. Corruption is one of the major challenges facing Africa and doesn’t seem like it is going to end anytime soon unless we get powerful presidents like Obama.
