Mr. Mwaanga says most politicians especially in Zambia must learn from the South African elections that it is possible to conduct civil and polite politics and still win people’s votes.
He also urged youths to emulate the new entrant in South Africa’s politics, the Economic Freedom Fighters party led by JULIUS MALEMA that they too can positively participate in the development of democracy in Zambia.
Mr. Mwaanga who joined politics as a youth says young people in the country should refuse to be used as tools for political violence .
