Yesterday, I had the honour of addressing the Young Democrats Union of Africa Conference in Malawi.
In my submission, I expressed my regret at the assault on democracy in Tanzania, which is essentially an affront to freedom and free expression.
I reiterated the need to uphold center right values as a key to deepening political participation, particularly for young people.
In this regard, I supported the call of Vice President H.E Dr. Bawumia, President Chakwera from Malawi, Prof. Mario Voight of the CDU in Germany and Hon. Peter Mac Manu who were all speakers at the Conference for the youth to not only participate in Politics and the discourse but also lead the discussion for the transformation of our Governance, Political and economic development.
