Former President John Dramani Mahama has stated that democracy and politics in Africa must not be a do or die affair as many would want it to appear to be.

In his view, it should rather be about serving the citizenry and country adding that during his tenure as president of the republic, he took decisions that were tough but necessary- which included the removal subsidies on fuel and many others. He expressed hope that the new government stay the course and have policy consistency.

Interacting with private sector players of Kenya, Organised by the Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA), the former president observed that the tendency of new governments in Africa to cancel agreements signed by a former government does not auger well for business growth.

Private sector will grow with democratic consolidation & right policies. They then develop capacity to employ 10s of 1000s of young people.
