FACTIONALIZATION, EVIDENCE OF AFRICAN POLITICAL IMMATURITY
What is wrong with African Politicians?
Political disagreements, fact of nature.
Factions, part of politics and life.
Factions exist under one political umbrella.
In Africa, factions create another umbrella,
Complete with a new leadership structure,
But same name as original organization.
Parallel factionalization under one umbrella,
With parallel leadership structures,
Evidence of African political immaturity.
Energies and synergies squandered on factionalization,
On internecine infighting, sometimes homicidal,
Distractions from political and developmental goals.
Life or death African politics must end.
African politics is all about money – stealing,
And not about power and service.
The direct line from the African Politicians’ pockets,
To the National treasuries must be severed,
Or Africa will remain corrupt and underdeveloped.
Expected financial rewards leads to factionalization.
Politically, factions should form new organizations.
Ever heard of rival Chairmen of the German Green Party – no.
Two battling Chairmen of the British Tory Party – no.
Feuding Chairpersons of the American Republican Party – no.
Antagonistic Chairmen of the African Shithole Party – yes, four.
Are Africans politically mature? – no
Is a one-party system, the solution?
Maybe a one party democracy will eliminate factionalization,
With safeguards to prevent dictatorships.
Synergizing African political energies for rapid development.
