South Africa has launched a campaign to teach its school pupils the anthem of the African Union in an effort to curb xenophobia.

 

Watch the video above to find out more.

 

Do you know the song? Just in case you don’t, here are the lyrics:

 

“Let Us All Unite and Celebrate Together” 

 

Let us all unite and celebrate together

 

The victories won for our liberation

 

Let us dedicate ourselves to rise together

 

To defend our liberty and unity

 

O Sons and Daughters of Africa

 

Flesh of the Sun and Flesh of the Sky

 

Let us make Africa the Tree of Life

 

Let us all unite and sing together

 

To uphold the bonds that frame our destiny

 

Let us dedicate ourselves to fight together

 

For lasting peace and justice on earth

 

O Sons and Daughters of Africa

 

Flesh of the Sun and Flesh of the Sky

 

Let us make Africa the Tree of Life

 

Let us all unite and toil together

 

To give the best we have to Africa

 

The cradle of mankind and fount of culture

 

Our pride and hope at break of dawn.

 

O Sons and Daughters of Africa

 

Flesh of the Sun and Flesh of the Sky

 

Let us make Africa the Tree of Life
