now on bbc news, global questions. hello, welcome to global questions with me, zeinab badawi. africa has the youngest population on earth. the average age on the continent is 19. yet many young people don't have a decent education or properjob and are worried about theirfuture. that's global questions: is africa failing its youth? well, to bring you this edition of global questions, our two panelists and our questioners join us via video link. let me tell you who's in the hot seat this week, giving the answers. graca machel is a mozambican
12:32 am
campaigner for social justice for african women and youth. she's the founder of the graca machel trust and is also chair for the mandela institute for development studies that bears the name of her late husband, nelson mandela. and angelique kidjo is an internationally renowned singer—songwriterfrom benin who has received four grammy awards for her music. she fled benin in the 1980s for political reasons, and continues her activism both through her campaigning and music. her new album, mother nature, is made with young artists and is out injune. welcome to you both, and of course, also to you wherever you're watching or listening to this programme, and to my questioners who join us from all corners of africa. and if you want to be part of the conversation, it's #bbcglobalquestions. let's get down now to our first question, and it's from kenya from joel.
12:33 am
joel, fire away, please. so, my first question is to doctor machel. i is the current education| system in africa failing? well, short and direct to the point, isn't it, graca machel? is the education system in africa currently failing? your answer, please. i have no doubt to affirm that yes, education systems in africa are failing our young generation. first, the way conceived to educate young people too sick for a job. second, the quality so far is so bad that young people in primary schools, they complete without knowing really how to read and write properly, how to have critical thinking. yeah, and we have lots of still
12:34 am
millions of children who are out of system. but the most critical thing is these systems need a profound reform to make sure that they respond to the demands and the needs of young people to prepare them for life, to prepare them, really, to initiate their own business and not depending only on... ..for a job. 0k, angelique kidjo, do you think the current education system in africa is failing, and if so, why? it has been failing for long time. i mean, it has not... it just gets worse today because the war becomes more and more global and technology is allowing us to realise how far back we fall in the job market. and i think, as graca said,
12:35 am
we need a profound change, which means we need a government to understand in africa, the education system have to change for our country to get out of poverty. and also, what we've learned in this covid—19 is also the technology. imean, i mean, access to internet gives— i mean, access to internet gives you _ i mean, access to internet gives you a way of thinking about— gives you a way of thinking about how you can also think about— about how you can also think about your future job. i know what — about your future job. i know what is — about your future job. i know what is needed. and it has to be a — what is needed. and it has to be a global working market, not only in_ be a global working market, not only in africa, it has to be an african — only in africa, it has to be an african workspace but also globah _ african workspace but also global. therefore, ithink african workspace but also global. therefore, i think we need — global. therefore, i think we need to— global. therefore, i think we need to think beyond the boxes and change the education system for all_ and change the education system for all africans everywhere in the world. for all africans everywhere in the world-— for all africans everywhere in the world. . ~' , ., . the world. 0k, thank you. that leaves on _ the world. 0k, thank you. that leaves on very _ the world. 0k, thank you. that leaves on very nicely _ the world. 0k, thank you. that leaves on very nicely to - the world. 0k, thank you. that leaves on very nicely to our - leaves on very nicely to our next question from the capital of morocco. your question, please, which is related to jobs for africa's youth. ml;

12:38 am
everyone to do to ensure they will be paying properly. that would lead to a reduction of a national skills training plan —— a production. which every government, every entrepreneur would know where to go. so, i believe that first and foremost, these echo systems need to be in place —— ecosystems. they need to be funded. they need to be accountable annually in terms of how they work.— accountable annually in terms of how they work. let's go now to zimbabwe _ of how they work. let's go now to zimbabwe to _ of how they work. let's go now to zimbabwe to our— of how they work. let's go now to zimbabwe to our next - to zimbabwe to our next question. your question. in question. your question. in this contemporary era, gender discrimination— this contemporary era, gender discrimination has— this contemporary era, gender discrimination has related - this contemporary era, gender discrimination has related to. this contemporary era, gender discrimination has related to ai discrimination has related to a lot of— discrimination has related to a lot of inequality _ discrimination has related to a lot of inequality between - discrimination has related to a lot of inequality between men| lot of inequality between men and women _ lot of inequality between men

12:40 am
situations that are in just and unfair, as the young lady was asking. so, i believe more than just supporting girls to conform with the system. we need platforms in which they have their own space to lead the process of who they are, what do they want to do, what they want to be supported by, but themselves and their wishes and perspectives. this way, we transform the progressive systems we have of the continent.— systems we have of the continent. ., ., .y continent. so greater agency for women — continent. so greater agency for women is _ continent. so greater agency for women is what _ continent. so greater agency for women is what graca - continent. so greater agency . for women is what graca machel is saying there. angelique kidjo, i know you are an ambassadorfor unicef, and you work in the space for girls. what would you add? what graca
12:41 am
said it is completely _ what would you add? what graca said it is completely true - what would you add? what graca said it is completely true and - said it is completely true and that's— said it is completely true and that's what i'm trying to address. what i do basically is to create. _ address. what i do basically is to create, because in 2016, i realised _ to create, because in 2016, i realised that we've all been working _ realised that we've all been working with adolescent and young — working with adolescent and young women without really asking — young women without really asking them what they need. you can't _ asking them what they need. you can't help— asking them what they need. you can't help people if they don't speak— can't help people if they don't speak up— can't help people if they don't speak up and come up with solutions. i completely transform i organisation. you can map _ transform i organisation. you can map a _ transform i organisation. you can map a village of 5000 people _ can map a village of 5000 people a day and find out the needs— people a day and find out the needs of— people a day and find out the needs of the girl. are they in school, — needs of the girl. are they in school, are they out of school, are the — school, are they out of school, are the orphans, are they married, _ are the orphans, are they married, are they mothers and what _ married, are they mothers and what do — married, are they mothers and what do they need? and i find out there _ what do they need? and i find out there that technology that - irls out there that technology that girls want the safe space, so i create — girls want the safe space, so i create girls club and start getting _ create girls club and start getting state funding for businesses. today, two legislations in my country is something... it exceeds my expectation because they also
12:42 am
realise — expectation because they also realise they are in charge of their— realise they are in charge of their own _ realise they are in charge of their own life.— realise they are in charge of their own life. graca machel, i want to ask — their own life. graca machel, i want to ask you _ their own life. graca machel, i want to ask you this _ their own life. graca machel, i want to ask you this because l their own life. graca machel, i i want to ask you this because we talk about a safe space for girls and women in africa, but in particular, for young women, we are seeing, sadly, an increase in sexual violence, particularly in conflict, where rape is being used as a tool of war. and this is something that, of course, is terribly distressing. i wonder if you would comment on that, graca machel. . , , machel. the reality is the numbers _ machel. the reality is the numbers of _ machel. the reality is the numbers of women - machel. the reality is the numbers of women who i machel. the reality is the i numbers of women who are getting violated, who are being aggressively sexually violated our increasing instead of reducing. and we don't find evenin reducing. and we don't find even in the government systems spaces which you can consider
12:43 am
absolutely safe for prevention. you'll find some which help women when they have been violated. there are certain cases where they support them, but i have to confess that we still need to go to the drawing board and find the right ways one, to prevent it, and second, to make sure that when this happens, we support all the women who have been violated. very rarely, you will find a woman who is violated to be taken to justice and even to be taken to justice and even to be taken to justice and even to be taken to jail. so, it means this system is painting women abysmally in my view.- abysmally in my view. very tra . ic. abysmally in my view. very tragic- do _ abysmally in my view. very tragic. do you _ abysmally in my view. very tragic. do you want - abysmally in my view. very tragic. do you want to -

12:47 am
would you say there? i think angelique addressed - would you say there? i think angelique addressed one i would you say there? i think angelique addressed one of| would you say there? i think. angelique addressed one of the issues. it's really education. these young people, in many cases, they are the educated and of course, economically, they are totally disadvantage. there are two signs in my view. 0ne, it's the conditions of education so that they will discern what they want for life and they won't be an easy prey for these who are recruiting them. the second one is opportunities to earn a living in a dignified way. if these young people have education, they will not be easily taken by these extremists and practices. so, isee by these extremists and practices. so, i see a by these extremists and practices. so, isee a big
12:48 am
response. education, and economy and governments —— three leg response. and build a movement across the country of saying we young people are not going to continue to be prey to these extremists.— going to continue to be prey to these extremists. thank you for that, these extremists. thank you for that. graca _ these extremists. thank you for that, graca machel. _ these extremists. thank you for that, graca machel. how - these extremists. thank you for| that, graca machel. how worried are you about the activities of extremists in northern mozambique? i extremists in northern mozambique?- extremists in northern mozambique? extremists in northern mozambiuue? . , mozambique? i can't really tell ou. i mozambique? i can't really tell you- i can't _ mozambique? i can't really tell you. i can't tell— mozambique? i can't really tell you. i can't tell you. _ mozambique? i can't really tell you. i can't tell you. it's- you. i can't tell you. it's tragic, it's tragic. but if we come to recognise, and now there are some efforts to focus on that region, programmes which economically empower young people, empower women, issues which will take time to bear fruit.
12:49 am
issues which will take time to bearfruit. 0ur government issues which will take time to bear fruit. 0ur government not having invested properly and that part of the world. it has been a corridor of drug dealers, of arms dealers, and again, it's because of the government institutions have not been strong enough to counter these networks. let's no to counter these networks. let's go to nigeria _ counter these networks. let's go to nigeria to _ counter these networks. let's go to nigeria to james. - counter these networks. let's go to nigeria to james. yourl go to nigeria to james. your question, james, please to graca angelique?— question, james, please to graca angelique? question, james, please to graca anuueliue? ~ , ., ., graca angelique? why do we have african leaders _ graca angelique? why do we have african leaders that _ graca angelique? why do we have african leaders that are _ african leaders that are insensible _ african leaders that are insensible and - african leaders that are insensible and the - african leaders that are i insensible and the plight african leaders that are - insensible and the plight of our people _ insensible and the plight of our people in— insensible and the plight of our people in africa? - insensible and the plight of our people in africa?- our people in africa? graca machel. — our people in africa? graca machel, we've _ our people in africa? graca machel, we've got - our people in africa? graca machel, we've got quite i our people in africa? graca machel, we've got quite a l our people in africa? graca i machel, we've got quite a few african leaders who are— let's put it this way— very senior in their age and not giving up that presidential seat. and then they governed these vast swathes of young people. they
12:50 am
don't always reflect their concerns, so what can we do about it. two questions there, make more responsive but also perhaps let them feed power to a younger generation. let perhaps let them feed power to a younger generation.— a younger generation. let me sa that a younger generation. let me say that these _ a younger generation. let me say that these old _ a younger generation. let me say that these old people i a younger generation. let me| say that these old people who are in those positions, they will not give up willingly. so, i think we have two issues which i would like to challenge young people to get involved in. one is, who is electing these old people? i think it's important that young people begin to ask the right questions. who are we going to be voting for? and what are we going to be voting for? that means to look very quickly in terms of candidates for these elections —— very critically. and question the motives in which they want to become leaders. second, look at the
12:51 am
programmes they are bringing to young people. for young people to say "we will only vote on you if you have our interest, our issues, and our plans." at the centre of your campaign, and set up accountability and even to get those leaders to signed up on what they are going to do to benefit and prioritise young people. mil prioritise young people. all ri . ht, prioritise young people. all right, let's go to kidjo on that question. i right, let's go to kid'o on that question.i that question. i like the optimism _ that question. i like the optimism of _ that question. i like the optimism of graca, i that question. i like the optimism of graca, but| that question. i like the | optimism of graca, but i that question. i like the i optimism of graca, but i have to say— optimism of graca, but i have to say something. it has been for a — to say something. it has been for a decade now that african leaders — for a decade now that african leaders don't care at all about the population. most of them don't — the population. most of them don't even know, they don't care — don't even know, they don't care at— don't even know, they don't care at all _ don't even know, they don't care at all. so, for the system to change. _ care at all. so, for the system to change, the western country has to— to change, the western country has to stop being complacent. china —

hello there. there's some more spring sunshine on the way for many of us on sunday, but the weather is changing. in scotland and northern ireland, we've got this band of cloud here coming in from the atlantic. that will bring some patchy rain into northern ireland and western scotland. it will keep the temperatures up, mind you. elsewhere, with little or no cloud, then those temperatures will fall close to freezing and there'll be some patchy frost, but it will warm up in the sunshine. but we've got much more cloud across scotland and northern ireland. most of the rain in the morning tending to peter out a bit more in the afternoon, eastern scotland staying dry and bright. sunshine across england and wales although we'll see some fair weather cloud bubbling up across wales and western england. further east in the sunshine, temperatures are likely to be a little bit higher than they were on saturday, but it may be a shade cooler than saturday where we've got the cloud in scotland and northern ireland.

but at least in the northwest, the pollen levels are not going to be quite as high with that rain around. we're in the peak of the tree pollen season, of course. this rain hasjust been hanging around, though, in the northwest for a few days in actualfact, lowering pressure out to the west of the uk, but the rains not really making much progress at all. indeed, many places still dry on monday. could be quite a cloudy, misty start for eastern parts of england before the cloud breaks up. we'll see some sunshine for a while, but again, some patchy cloud will develop here and there, leading to some sunny spells. the rain just hangs around towards the northwest of scotland, not far away from western parts of northern ireland. bit warmer in scotland, those temperatures continuing to rise in england and wales — 16 or 17 degrees here. now, this rain is going to try to push into the uk during tuesday and into wednesday, but high pressure is going to be building across it, so there won't be very much rain at all. we've got some patchy rain heading southwards across scotland, northern ireland, maybe into the northwest of england, but it really is just dying out all the time.
12:59 am
could be one or two showers further south, but it's on the whole a dry day. still quite warm across parts of england and wales, turning a bit cooler in scotland and northern ireland. and once that rain just tends to fade away as high pressure builds in, we start to draw in cooler air from the north as we head towards wednesday. we start the week, though, with something a little bit warmer for many parts of the country, and then by the middle part of the week, it does get cooler from the north. but it's been a very dry month and the dry theme is set to continue.
