Reverend Franck Chikane on Africa Day.

While it is necessary to celebrate Africa day governments-all over the world, must start working together with people of African descent in order for the plight of Africans in the diaspora to change . This is according to South Africa's anti-apartheid activist Reverend Franck Chikane. Chikane is the convener of the African Diaspora conference, which aims to assess how far the objectives of the liberation of Africans and Africans in the Diaspora have been achieved.

For more on the conference, Channel Africa's Khumbelo Munzhelele spoke to Reverend Chikane. He says the spirit of working together with people of African descent globally is the only way that will make a difference.
