As part of the events lined up for RPF Inkotanyi’s 30th anniversary celebrations, an international conference that will bring together global leaders and scholars among others is set to take place this Tuesday at the party’s Headquarters.
The forum will be held under the theme: “Liberation and transformation: realizing a dignified and prosperous Africa.”
Around 1,000 delegates are expected to participate.
The conference will focus on three main thematic areas: Liberation, Transformation and Self-Reliance.
“Two sessions are planned with formats ranging from high-level plenary to storytelling, with speakers representing the scope of RPF-Inkotanyi 30 year journey,” a statement on the party’s website said.
The conference will also be an opportunity for other political parties, partners and friends of the RPF-Inkotanyi to share their experiences and learn from each other’s journeys.
According to the concept note of the conference, the statement said, “it will help increase the awareness of RPF-Inkotanyi’s ideology and its adaptation over time.”
It will also help deepen solidarity around the common fate that Africans share and RPF-Inkotanyi’s commitment to contributing to Africa’s transformation.
Among the key speakers at the event include the former President of Tanzania, Benjamin Mkapa while among the panelist planned to feature at the meeting include former Assistant Secretary of State for African affairs in the United States, Jendayi Frazer.
