Total Mobilization :

Governments in Africa face the enormous task of uniting all our people to fight as one against the coronavirus. Our governments owe us the duty to offer political leadership in uniting the different political forces and civil society groups to put our collective shoulders to the wheel in these difficult times for our societies.

All groups that claim to represent people in various ways and all persons who lay claim to leadership at any level are duty bound to stand up in this time of crisis to be counted and to live up to their responsibilities of leadership..
