AFRICA IN HISTORY
We in Radio Shrine intend to share with our viewers in this column dubbed ‘Africa in History’, our deep drinking from the rivers of African history.

Constantly on social networks and public comments, one regular remark made by Nigerians and the same thing in other parts of Africa is: “only God or Allah can help us solve all these problems”.

Radio Shrine! Gan! Gan! The on-going world-wide campaign, to free Nigeria’s school girls kidnapped by the despicable Boko Haram sect is an indication that with awareness and the will necessary, we can mobilize our forces to make a change in any African society thanks to social network. Agreed that it is too early at this stage to cry victory while the kidnapped girls are still in captivity, it is very re-assuring to see that the consensus of opinion are looking beyond their liberation and (...)
