Johannesburg – The president of the Pan African Parliament, Roger Nkodo Dang, who has been recently re-elected to head the organisation, has urged Africans to embrace democracy and unite.

“I am hoping this is a lesson to my fellow Africans across the continent that democratic processes must be embraced and appreciated,” said Dang, a Cameroonian native.
