Rethinking the GMO Revolution – Matters Here and There

Since the avalanche of what has become known as Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) in Africa, there have been many red flags from researchers, farmers, environmental workers and Non Governmental Organisations. GMOs became a subject of discussion in the last decade or so attracting many arguments by the proponents for its beneficial properties as well as the potential for changing the face of agriculture on the continent. Conversely, there has been equal measure of counter arguments from anti- GM groups focusing on health, environmental concerns, and sustainability questions among others.
