Patriotic Front Secretary General)Davies Mwila has called upon African political parties to unite against imperialism and neo-colonialism on the continent.
Mr. Mwila who is at the same time President of the Council of African Political Parties (CAPP) also thanked Lieutenant General Bakri H. Salih, First Vice President and Prime Minister of the Republic of Sudan for his Government’s continued support to CAPP. “CAPP will ever be grateful to the Government and Peoples of Sudan”.
Speaking when he officially opened the Third General Assembly of CAPP being attended by 78 political parties in Khartoum including the Council of Asian Political Parties (ICAPP), Mr. Mwila who outlined the successes under his tenure, said time for Africa to unite than ever before had come.
“I came here to sound the trumpet to CAPP that unless Africa unites at every level – socially, economically and otherwise, Africa will soon become a lost cause. Imperialist forces have identified puppets and mouthpieces of capital, ready to auction our country’s natural resources to their funders. Africa must unite!
“How can it be that foreign mining conglomerates with interest in controlling mineral interests in a Southern and Central African Country can speak the same language as the leader of the Opposition? How can it be that a leader of the Opposition can say to Africans in Zambia that should he win an election, he would bring back one mining conglomerate that gave up on Zambians when they needed it the most?” wondered the PF Secretary General and CAPP President.
“How can it be that puppets in Kenya, puppets in Zimbabwe and South Africa, speak the same language as their so-called Think-Tank in South Africa, fully funded by one mining conglomerate?” Mr. Mwila asked.
He called on political parties across the continent to ensure their countries preserved Independence and protected natural resources from foreign exploitation.
“I came to sound a clarion call that unless Africa unites to preserve its Independence and natural resources, we shall be a lost cause. CAPP must rise to the challenge, reform and reposition for a better and more secured Africa.
“ Let us remind ourselves that our Freedom from the shackles of Colonialism was not Free. We must say to today and tomorrow’s generation of Africans that never and never again will Africa and African countries give themselves away to imperialist stooges littered across the continent”, Mr Mwila said.
