The justiceability of the right to adequate food like all social and economic rights is still a very controversial affair. Violation of civil and political rights continues to be treated as though they were far more serious and more patently intolerable , than massive denial of economic, social and cultural rights. In a Sub-Saharan social milieu , the legislative protection of economic and social rights like the right to adequate food is very problematic because the state is superimposed in a covertly coercive neo-liberal globalization regime that has not only extirpated economic sovereignty but also food sovereignty. African states are slowly and steadily being integrated into the politics of global social injustice interwoven in nuances such as: agricultural led industrialization , Biotechnology , GMOs , Northern subsidies , and TRIPS. The African organic agriculture and genetic heritage is at risk of estrangement and alienation by corporate moguls protected by institutionalization through the WTO.
