  • 1. TO TRUE DEMOCRACY in THE JOURNEY AFRICA
  • 2. In its simplest term DEMOCRACY = BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS
  • 3. Whenever we go to polls in Africa, we should consider changing history not improving or refurbishing history to write another sad chapter of uncertainty – Ivan Ukiwah
  • 4. The Journey to true Democracy DEMOCRACY is providing equal access to power, better representation and more freedoms to the electorate (people who voted you and those that did not). Anything short of this goes against everything we know about true democracy.
  • 5. Power in the hands of leaders lacking genuine vision, passion and commitment to serve except the vision to enslave and deprived people of their universally recognised freedoms and liberties. AFRICA WHERE POWER IS HELD BY LEADERS
  • 6. Democracy is a form of government in which power is held by people under a free electoral system. What we are witnessing in some parts of Africa is democracy where hunger, starvation, dehumanisation, police brutality, are dispatched by elected leaders
  • 7. DIRECT DEMOCRACY Africans should consider radical alternatives and refrain from the widening spectrum of social, political and economic instability crippling the continent.
  • 8. Advancement of True Democracy All we need is a spectre of civilized democracy reminiscent of western world, based on the right of every citizen to actively participate in matters that affect them. Not democracy plagued by corrupt, selfish and insignificant (masquerading as leaders) depriving people of basic human right.
  • 9. The Input and Output Equation of a fragile Africa ARMS AND AMMUNITIONS Weapons of Mass Destruction No to FOOD AID No to Peaceful Resolution of conflicts No to foreign AID WORKERS Weapons of mass Disintegration Weapons of Vandalism No to western Democracy Import gadgets of mass corruption No to Human Rights Weapons of Mass Hunger Weapons of mass dehumanisation No to foreign health Professionals on volunteer services
  • 10. A REALITY CHECK
    • It is long overdue, its not too late for Africa to change course and navigate a new direction to break the vicious cycles that are crippling our continent. If nothing is done by way of voting/electing the right people to serve, Africans will continue to thread the path of wars, hunger, corruption, starvation, dehumanisation which could linger for generations.
  • 11. BLEEDING AFRICA
    • Now is the time to put an end to the chaotic life we live in Africa. We [Africans] all need to wake up and smell the liberating wind of change and the changing political landscape across the world.
    • We have all seen the long term consequences of selling our rights to nasty, brutish and irresponsible leaders. We need liberation from the shackles of poverty, deprivation, hunger, and an end to the continuous spectrum of war across Africa's unique landscape and people.
