The black and white images of city walls and graffiti walls in the African nation of Tanzania have been widely celebrated as a powerful symbol of defiance against the rule of a dictator and the subjugation of Africans.
But according to the African National Congress, the walls are destroying the country.
“These walls are a sign of the disrespect for our history and a sign that the black people are in control,” said Afrikaner Party MP Emile Nkrumah, the spokesman for the Afrikannian People’s Party.
He accused the government of using the walls as a political tool and said they were also a threat to the economy.
African walls, he said, were a symbol of a nation in crisis.
“We want to fight for our country,” he said.
Afrikaners are also concerned about the government’s plan to install new city walls on its African coast.
On Friday, the Tanzanian parliament passed a bill to build a wall along the coast.
It will cost $12 million.
The Tanzanians, who say the government has been insensitive to the needs of African communities, have protested against the wall’s erection on social media and have held demonstrations across the country in support of the opposition party, the Nkrajia Party.
The government has defended the walls, saying they are part of a long-term plan to protect the country’s heritage.
But the opposition says the walls and the government plan will destroy the country and will create a dangerous environment for African migrants and other vulnerable people.
In Tanzania, the black population is under the direct control of a military dictatorship.
In 2008, the government imposed martial law in the country after the country was declared a failed state.
A government spokesperson told the AP that the proposed wall is part of the countrys long-standing efforts to protect African heritage.
