African nations hold roughly 25 percent of the seats in the UN General Assembly, making the region’s voice important on global issues such as climate change and drug trafficking. A large and rapidly growing population, vast natural resource reserves, and economic potential all position Africa to play a greater future role in international relations. But the region faces serious challenges that temper many countries’ ability to project power today. Relatively low economic performance, civil wars, military coups, insecurities in areas such public health, poverty, corruption, and political instabilities continue to force large numbers of people flee their homes as refugees and migrants. Whether African nations can cooperate to address these challenges through institutions such as the African Union, and their respective zones of economic integration will largely determine the region’s future.

African communities suffer from chronic emotional distress, political repressions, poverty, access to adequate health care, education, and access to water as a result of war, civil war, and persecution on civilian populations. These acts usually perpetrated by state and non-state actors violate the fundamental values that govern the international human rights law and thus violate the rules in accordance to a Higher Law.

In most cases, they  need shelter, medicine, food, legal services, advocacy, protection and safety.

Empowering change-makers with skill of engaging the process of removing Idols in the spheres of African political leadership

Orpe-Ref-4.jpg

Worshiping idols in the sphere of political leadership in Africa and also elsewhere around the world is what constitute major cause that influence political instabilities in Africa. It is one of the leading causes which contribute on civilian populations suffer from injustice, lack of freedom, discrimination, persecutions and widespread violations of human rights law. Orpe Human Rights Advocates considers the doctrine of "Idol" as having similar theory of meaning as to the "Badges of dictatorship". History repeatedly proves that spheres of political leadership in African countries is dominated by practices that praise idols and fed by blood from extrajudicial killings and from sufferings inflicted on civilian populations. For example, by the late 1990s, most countries in the region had transitioned from being European colonies to becoming independent countries. Some, such as South Africa and Botswana, formed democratically elected governments. In other countries, such as Angola, Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda, Ivory Coast, Cameroon,  oppressive colonial governments were simply replaced by authoritarian regimes that worshiped or continue to worship idols. Many of the governments formed by freedom fighters who led independence movements enjoyed widespread popularity for decades. But as quality of life has stagnated and new generations come of age, the legitimacy of these independence heroes has started to fade. Moreover, many African leaders continue to set dangerous precedents for democracy by refusing to cede power after their term limits are up. The region is also home to weak or fragile countries, such as Somalia and the Democratic Republic of Congo, which have been devastated by years of protracted conflict. About ten military coups in West Africa has resurged additional factors of hindering the progress of rule of law, democracy and an expectation of ongoing human rights abuses in African regions. Orpe human Rights Advocates works on the path of promoting programs that empower change-makers acquire the ability to engage in the process that strives for removal of idols in the sphere of political leadership within the aim of reducing sufferings in the sphere of underprivileged populations. t

Protracted conflicts in the Central African Republic (CAR), Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Sudan and South Sudan continued to simmer, with indiscriminate and targeted attacks on civilians. Armed groups in Cameroon, Mali, Nigeria, Somalia and elsewhere committed abuses, including killings and abductions, which caused mass displacements. State security forces often replied with serious human rights violations such as extrajudicial killings, enforced disappearances and torture. These conflicts and insecurity – together with new forms of communal violence that emerged in countries like Ethiopia – were brutal reminders that Africa is a long way from breaking its deadly cycle of armed conflicts and violence. Often what have been silenced are not the guns – but justice and accountability for crimes and other serious human rights violations. From Nigeria to South Sudan, countless victims of serious crimes and abuses did not see justice and reparations. The year was also marked by widespread repression of dissent – including crackdowns on peaceful protests, and attacks on media, human rights defenders and political opponents. In over 20 countries, people were denied their right to peaceful protest, including through unlawful bans, use of excessive force, harassment and arbitrary arrests. In two thirds of the countries monitored, governments heavily restricted freedom of expression – with some particularly clamping down on journalists, bloggers, civil society groups, and political opponents, including in the context of elections. These violations unfolded in a context of failures to protect and fulfil economic, social and cultural rights. Forced evictions without compensation continued in countries including Eswatini, Nigeria, Uganda and Zimbabwe. Large-scale commercial
