Abstract:

The cultural beliefs, norms and practices of any society are more importantly directed at fostering peaceful social co-existence. Some cultural practices in Africa are aberration to reason because they inflict gender violence, promote social inequality and undermine effective social relations. Contemporary instruments meant to mitigate these are incapacitated by the cultural beliefs, therefore holding social justice in captivity. This paper, therefore, examines this ubiquitous plague that beleaguered Africa and the attempts at eradicating the malaise. It argues for the reappraisal of some of the cultural practices so as to be in tandem with reality that promotes peaceful social co-existence.
