Background
In the global democratic system, the financing of politics or political campaigns has received huge attention. This is because, political financing is critical for a proper functioning of democracy. In Africa for example, the monetization of electoral politics and increasing vote buying poses serious threat to our democracy.
In this episode, our discussion focuses on how we could end monetization of our politics and rather strengthen our democracy in Africa. A democracy that puts the need of the majority topmost priority.
