Chad: African museum for peace to be built in Chad
The African Union (AU) and the Chadian government will create the first African museum for peace, human rights and non-violence here, Head of the Culture and Sports Section of the AU, Daraïtivo Ralaïbo, said at a press conference held in the Chadian capital city.
"We have worked technically with the ministry for the promotion of Human rights and freedom to create the first African museum ever for peace, non-violence and human rights in Chad," said Mr. Ralaïbo, who is at the head of an AU delegation in a bid to prepare a conference meant for the cultural renaissance of Africa.
"We wish that the museum were created in N'djamena with the support of the AU Commission and all international partners. We want to achieve something concrete here," he added.
The AU delegation is working with Chadian authorities to organize the African Youth Day and to create a centre to build capacity among young people, a sports centre and a journalism training centre.
