MMD President Nevers Mumba has urged African Government to prioritize education for the continent to develop. Dr Mumba said Africa must consider introducing compulsory education for all Citizens adding that the continent must make it illegal to keep a child away from school.

He charged that it will take an educated citizenry to defend democracy and freedoms. Education brings dignity and courage to make progressive decisions. Dr Mumba also stated the prospect of sustainable development in Africa is threatened by the neglect by people of morality to engage in politics.

He was speaking in Johannesburg, South Africa yesterday when he made a key note address at the Global Business Roundtable convention.
