Political Parties or Election Campaign Gangs?

Dear Editor,

Call them whatever you want, but the features and characteristics of the so-called political parties in this country amount to the behaviours of interest groups. All it take is for any self-styled leader to frame-up a manifesto and a constitution not to mention registration with relevant authorities and then the bazaar is on. Funny there are name changes happening as well as new sensationalize ones to appeal to their targets. This is in my view tantamount to window-dressing. Given the amount of interest shown by our long serving politician to get re-elected, we could be certain that we are in it for another difficult four years. It was said that an old dog will not be able to learn new tricks. This country needs new and God-fearing leaders because the brains that help create our socio- economic problems will not be able to provide reasonable solutions.
