Published by paceminterris
This Manifesto is a call to the many peoples
and governments of Africa to rise up to the challenge
of taking their proper place in the ongoing global STI
revolution. This Manifesto promotes self-rule in a manner
that clearly allows autonomy in the origination of ideas,
experimentation and curiosity in order to provide solutions that are home-grown and encourages “Africanness” of viewpoints.
