The Tourism Ministry, headed by Mrs Catherine Ablema Afeku, has hinted of its intention to rename all castles as dungeons to qualify the essence of their establishment as conduits for slavery.
The move is geared towards reminding the black race of the atrocities and the dehumanizing acts meted out to its people during the Trans-Atlantic Chattel Trade to reignite concerted efforts to emancipate themselves from all forms of enslavements.

“The castles we know are not castles but dungeons where our brothers were brutalized and died there and should be renamed as such. We should work collectively to free ourselves from these dehumanizing narratives that demean human dignity.”
