AfricaGender Indaba – Edition 8 (40 Mins)

In this week’s programme, civil society organisations in Tanzania are challenging a policy that allows the permanent expulsion of pregnant school girls, thus denying them the opportunity to ever access education.

We pay tribute to the late Executive Director of the UN Population Fund, Dr. Babatunde Osotimehin, a passionate advocate for women and girl’s reproductive health rights.

We look ahead to the International Day of the African Child and Youth.

And, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights expresses deep alarm at a widespread pattern of rallies in Burundi where members of the ruling party’s youth wing chant about impregnating and killing their opponents.
