Africa Adopting Democratic Principles

Many African countries have willingly adopted and embraced the internationally concept of multi-party democracy in the past two decades, says Fikeni

Political analyst and commentator, Professor Somadoda Fikeni, says in the past two decades many African countries have willingly adopted and embraced the internationally concept of multi-party democracy.

Speaking during the opening of the three-day Second Annual Colloquium on Electoral Democracy in Pretoria, Fikeni said the election management adopted by the African Union member states has removed the ‘dark continent characteristic’ which Africa used to be associated with by the world powers.

Fikeni, who argues that welcoming and adoption of accepted democratic principle has paved the way for the formation of independent election management bodies which against all odds and difficulties performed incredibly, notes that, “This has also assisted the continent to rid itself of dictatorship, personal rule and autocracy."
