March 20th: Focus On Africa As Malema, Raila, Atiku Train Their Guns On The Incumbents.

African countries' major opposition Leaders are currently up in arms against the incumbent presidents.

From Nigeria, Kenya , Tunisia to South Africa things are not rossy for the sitting heads of states and governments.

In Nigeria, the opposition party PDP led by former vice president Atiku Abubakar has refused to accept the results of the just concluded presidential election whereby Bola Tinubu of the rulling all progressive party was declared winner.

The opposition has demanded for a fresh election accusing the country's polls agency of bungling the election.

Locally, the story Isn't different as the former prime minister Raila Odinga firms up his push against president William Ruto's administration which he terms as illegitimate.

On Thursday, he declared a mother of all mass actions which is set to take place on march 20 in an effort to pressure Ruto to meet the opposition demands with a clarion cell "Ruto must go".

Both Atiku and Raila have been in this game for over two decades having lost in previous presidential elections.

On the same date march 20, south African opposition chief Julius malema of economic freedom fighters (EFF) Plans to hold a massive rally aimed at pushing president Cyril Ramaphosa out of office.

Malema who was once the president of Africa national Congress (ANC) youth wing was expelled from the party forcing him into opposition.

He has been accusing the ANC government of pursuing pro-rich policies leaving out the poor and the vulnerable.

Among other things, the youthful leader will be calling for Ramaphosa whom he terms as incompetent to resign from office.

"The longer Ramaphosa remains the president of this country, the more likely it will be that the future generation will not have a country to inherit," says Malema ahead of March 20.
