Africa has experienced a lot of security breaches that has impacted on its development. Indeed security challenges remain a major factor impeding the continentâ€™s development. From Sierra Leone and Liberia to Burundi and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) experts have indicated that it will take years to bring these economies back to pre-war times.
Even in countries not at war, tribal and religious tensions exist which sometimes explode with unpleasant consequences on the citizenry. Other security challenges such as armed robbery, violence against women and children are common and even the police men, soldiers and other security forces whose job supposedly is to protect the citizens have all too often been part of the problem.
There will be symposia on other issues such as food and water security in Africa, and the role of the youth in ensuring security on the continent.
