Miss Lukwesa Morin, Miss African Union 2019 at St Frederick college

Visiting St Fredrick College in Bamenda this weekend, Lukwesa Morin, Miss African Union 2019, asked students to continue their studies in order to achieve their dreams. For more than four years, the school has been disrupted in the English speaking North West and South-West regions of Cameroon. According to her, the school today used as a weapon of war is a fundamental violation of human rights

"The future of the African continent rests on the education of young people" she declared. 

In front of a crowd of students from this private school, she calls on young people to surpass themselves. "Don't get carried away with easy gain, don't say you can't, no limitation, don't say you're incapable, don't think small, think big, create your own person in your thoughts, if you want to become a doctor, an entrepreneur, it's your absolute right "she said.

The socio-political crisis in the English-speaking regions of Cameroon has forced several schools, especially in remote areas to close their doors. According to her, her presence in Cameroon and especially in Bamenda aims to encourage literacy among students. She asked these students at St Fredrick College to realize what lies ahead. "It is an illusion to think that you are inferior to others, always remind yourself that what you do to others, you do to yourself too".

Joseph Mubangs makes promises to the students

Lukwesa Morin, Miss African Union 2019, said she would do her best to express Africa's quest to achieve socio-economic development to secure the interests of the youth. The Zambian national, now works with various embassies and diplomatic missions, international organizations and government authorities on how to significantly change the lives of young people and African women. She said her lobbying will focus specifically on developing entrepreneurship, creating jobs and reducing the impacts of climate change in Africa. "African governments must more than ever make a commitment to improving the lives of millions of young people and women through sustainable development, expanding health and education, and technological advancement."  

Reacting to these remarks from the 2019 Miss African Union, Mike Mubang, proprietor of the college , said he was satisfied with  these  words in an environment that is now hostile to education. He urges the miss to work for the granting of assistance to schools in English-speaking areas at war.

He  promise a school bus,  a library, an orchestral,  a band and a dispensary to be given  to  St Fredrick.
