The Pan African Writers Association, (PAWA) has charged writers to strengthen the effort in leading Africa’s unity.

In a statement, signed and issued by the Chairman of the Steering Committee of PAWA, Nana Kwasi Gyan Apenteng, to mark the 25th African Writers Day, PAWA said, “African writers must redouble their efforts to be in the forefront of the struggle for African unity and common purpose in addition to fighting for peace, enhanced and inclusive governance, human rights, and social justice for Africans everywhere”.

Mr. Gyan Apenteng reminded writers and the association that PAWA was founded to strengthen the cultural and economic bonds among Africans.

“Today, the Steering Committee wishes to remind writers and their associations that the mission of PAWA, which was boldly articulated at its founding is to strengthen the cultural and economic bonds between the people on the African continent against the background of the continent’s acknowledged diverse but rich cultural, political and economic heritage. It is the expectation of the continent that its writers will continue to uphold this message”.

November 7 each year is set aside by the African Union to salute and honour all African writers and writers of African descent.

The day also marks the founding of  Pan African Writers Association, (PAWA) in 1989.
