UNIP and MMD are going into extinction because they have failed to reorganise, says PF secretary general Wynter Kabimba.
And Sudan’s National Congress Party (NCP) deputy head Dr Nafie Ali Nafie said the council of African political parties must consolidate itself into a body that could monitor elections on the continent.
Kabimba, who chaired the committee on the role of political parties in enhancing democracy, peace development and unity here at the ongoing inaugural conference of the council of the African political parties themed ‘together to enhance unity and renaissance of the African continent’ said former ruling parties in Zambia went into oblivion because they fell for anything.
“In my country, we have two political parties (UNIP and MMD) that lost elections and went into extinction because they failed to re-organise.
Parties must be based on ideologies; otherwise, a party will have problems of its life expectancy.
