A women’s movement from Sierra Leone called Women in Agriculture says sustainable development can never be attained on the African continent because land is being grabbed from women.
Organization coordinator Sara Rodgers said her message to the world leaders at the Rio+20 summit is to say ``hands off my land`` she said it is a taboo in most African countries for a woman to own land.
Sara said the issue of land grabbing is very serious is Sierra Leone and women are the most affected though they constitute 55% of the farming community.
She said she is in support of sustainable development because it is part of life for the person engaged in it but thinks that it is coming at the expense of a woman having her land grabbed. He was speaking in an exclusive interview with flamme da Afrique at the peoples summit in Rio de janeiro Brazil.
