The EFF says the online lecture will empowerment young Africans who are committed to building a better continent.
“PLO Lumumba will be giving us a lecture on the history of Pan-Africanism. He’ll be giving us a clearer perspective in terms of what has been the discourse on Pan-Africanism in the entire continent,” says the party’s deputy president Floyd Shivambu.
The United Nations has raised concerns on the lack of coordination as the world grapples with the pandemic. But some believe there are pockets of excellence. The Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention has announced that it will scale up its programmes, aimed at ensuring that African Union (AU) member countries comply with World Health Organisation (WHO) guidlines.
