Talking with Linnet Ng’ayu.
African countries have been key leaders for nuclear disarmament for decades. Not only has the continent been a nuclear weapons free zone since 2009, but to this day South Africa remains the only country to disarm after developing nuclear weapons. At the same time, African societies find themselves in immediate danger in the case of a nuclear fall out. In this light, African perspectives on disarmament and the humanitarian consequences of nuclear weapons have much to add to the international debate.
With Linnet Ng’ayu, who is an advisor on humanitarian disarmament with the African Council of Religious Leaders and participated in the negotiations for the nuclear ban treaty, we discuss African perspectives on nuclear weapons, activism and political advocacy, and how Africa became a nuclear weapons free zone. The event will consist of a 20-30min presentation which will be followed by a Q&A.
