Africa: power and politics in Africa

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Ghana, Malawi, Uganda, Governance, Politics

Jamaa Poa posts a feature article, The Strong Shall Always Be the Weak [1], by Onyango Obbo, the Nation Media Group [2]’s managing editor for Convergence and New Products: “The authoritarian politics of the likes of Banda, which was the rule in most of Africa in the 1970s and 1980s, also gave rise to another irritating feature of African politics – the long speech. A speaker needs to take his audience for granted – or to hold them to a degree of fear – for him to bludgeon them with a dull speech for hours without protest.”
