The DUA held its General Assembly (AGM) on the 9th November, 2022 in Abidjan Cote D’Ivoire. This was the first in –person DUA gathering after nearly four years. The global outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic had made it impossible for such gatherings to happen. It was therefore a sensational moment for the member parties hailing from 15 African countries to meet one another after that long.
After addressing challenges facing the continent and the DUA itself, the assembly was concluded by electing Rt. Hon Freeman Mbowe who is also the National Chairman of Tanzania’s Chama Cha Demokrasia na Maendeleo (CHADEMA) and HE Louisa Atta- Agyemang of the Ghana’s New Patriotic Party (NPP) to serve the organization as Co- Chairpersons.
Through this meeting, the DUA renewed its spirit in championing the centre-right ideals on the continent. Both Rt. Hon Freeman Mbowe and HE Louisa Atta-Agyemang pledged their commitment to unify member parties in order to create a stronger and clearer centre-right voice in addressing a multitude of challenges confronting the African Continent.
