Leading Through Crisis
The African people are now in a situation where they have to fight against their own leadership, said Odinga. "This underground fight has required great leadership skills and many people have lost their lives, been put in detention and sent to prison - a sacrifice that had to be made for society to become open to bipartism. During the dictatorship, it was winner take all. Now, the loser takes all. The old political parties are not willing to let go even when they lose a political election."
