For years African Leaders have been drunk with power oppressing the sprouting ambitious young political seeds.
In Zimbabwe Robert Mugabe became prime minister of Zimbabwe in 1980 and served as the country’s president from 1987 until his forced resignation in 2017.
Young People have been silenced. Either you shut up or die has Bobi Wine of Uganda puts it, a 36 year fearless member of Parliament who has given Museveni Sleepless Nights.
These are Just a token of African Presidents who have been in power forcefully by ignoring the will of the people. Oppressing the electoral justice and Intimidating free Justice.
Few of Sprouting young Political Lions are taking a new twist of changing the shape of Africa as the Swahili say Safari ndefu huanza kwa hatua Moja.
Speaking on a Kenyan National Television on Wednesday night, Renowned opposition young Politician Bobi Wine of Uganda and Kenya Young Parliamentarians Association Secretary-General Babu Owino said they are starting a revolutionary movement bringing together all young political opposition leaders across Africa to bring change.
“We have partnered with Other leaders including our Role Model Julius Malema of South Africa to bring sanity in Africa,” Said Babu.
Bobi wine is in Kenya for a 5 days trip where the young MPs are expected to engage on how to advance democracy across Africa and improve participation of young people in governance.
This comes a mid of Wines invitation by Babu Owino who is also a Member of Parliament for Embakasi East who said the invitation is because of the respect Wine plays in inspiring young people across the continent.
“This visit is in response to an invitation I sent as Secretary General of the Kenya Young Parliamentarians Association out of profound respect for the role Hon. Kyagulanyi plays in inspiring young people across the continent,” Said Babu.
The two and other young MPs are expected to hold rallies in Kenya to advocate the reason why Long serving presidents in Africa should retire.
