The Council of the African Political Parties (CAPP), concluding its two-day conference in the Sudanese capital Khartoum on Sunday, has vowed to unite the continent against corruption.

The conference also elected Nigeria's of Ramatu Tijjani as its new, and first ever, chairwoman during the third CAPP general assembly.

“Let me reiterate that the new CAPP leadership will be careful to work towards political stability, economic prosperity and cultural integration of our people,” the new chairwoman stressed.

“[...]We shall unite to say to those imperialists that have made us not to believe in ourselves that we feel proud and great about Africa,” she added.

The 32 political parties from across the continent agreed to stand against the International Criminal Court (ICC) and corruption on the African continent.

Established in Khartoum in 2013, CAPP seeks to enhance political cooperation and unity between African countries.
