The theme for Africa Day celebration organised by Madibaz YouthLab, is anchored by rethinking the real meaning of utilising education for Africa as a continent.

To meet the objectives of a continent that is buttressed on the values of self-reliance.

This was articulated in Arusha declaration as a possibility of finding long lasting solution for African problems.

Agenda 2063 emphasises the importance of people-driven development that relies on the harnessing of the potential of African people particularly women and youth .

It is thus necessary to stop and reflect on the philosophy, values and praxes of Nyerere and his contemporaries.

We need to answer the question: have we succeeded in transforming the inherited colonial education into a transformative vehicle for the development and renewal of the continent?
