14 Mar Pressuring political leaders to step aside

The African Continent has seen a number of political leaders face protests from their people as a result of their leadership styles or dictatorship. In the year 2017 we saw the Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe let go after 37 years of dictatorship. Now in the recent past we witnessed calls for the Democratic Republic of Congo President Joseph Kabila to step down to which he did although with an agreement to make a coalition government. Currently in Algeria and Sudan are up in arms demanding the resignation of their presidents. So today on the show we look at this new way of pressuring political leaders to step aside. But to take the conversation forward we joined on the line by:
