Kenya | AfricaSociety | Human rights | Science - EducationAbolishing fees boosts African schoolingAfrica Renewal - When the Kenyan government announced it would stop charging fees for primary school education - just days before the beginning of the 2003 school year - the result was pandemonium. Teachers, headmasters and parents scrambled to find desks, pencils and books for over a million extra students. Many African countries have followed Kenya's example. AfricaAgriculture - Nutrition | Economy - Development | Human rights | Politics | SocietyAfrica highlights 2004 by afrol Newsafrol News - Negative news often dominate the international coverage of Africa. 2004 however has seen much more than the crises in Darfur and Côte d'Ivoire. Peace has returned to many more countries, democracy and human rights are strengthening in Africa and the economy is booming in many countries. The link between democracy and development has been demonstrated and the outlook for 2005 is mostly positive. RwandaSociety | Human rightsThe Cross and the Genocideafrol News - The 1994 Rwandan genocide, killing an estimated 800,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus, is made even more incomprehensible by the documented participation of many representatives of Rwandan church societies. How could God fearing nuns, and even a bishop, take part in the most cruel crimes against humanity committed on African soil? Even worse, several church societies allegedly were co-responsible for the growing hatred that led to the genocide. It remains an enormous contradiction to the Christian Message of Love.
