In a statement, ITUC-Africa General Secretary Kwasi Adu-Amankwah said African people and their civil society organizations, including workers and their trade unions were gearing up in the struggle against continuing exploitation, corruption and sell out of elites to foreign interests and to organize and mobilize for the achievement of rights, dignity, good governance, justice, peace and social progress as set out in the Kilimanjaro Declaration.
