Botswana opens 49th CPA Africa Region Conference 

GABORONE, (Xinhua) -- The vice president of Botswana Slumber Tsogwane Saturday performed the official opening of the 49th Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) Africa Region Conference in the capital Gaborone.

The conference is held under the theme “The role of African Parliaments in fostering national and regional security”.

“The theme calls upon parliaments to play their unique role as suitable forums for expressing divergent viewpoints, mediating between competing interests in society, and ultimately making decisions on behalf of citizens for the common good,” he said.

He urged the conference to also remember Africa’s Agenda 2063 and especially its aspirations, among them an Africa of good governance, democracy, respect for human rights, justice, rule of law, as well as a peaceful secure Africa.

“In Africa, the main causes of conflict and violence include, high unemployment, lack of equal opportunities, urbanization, poverty, inequality, and lack of good governance and corruption in some parts of the continent,” he said.

He reiterated that Parliament is the principal facilitator in achieving national and international goals and aspirations, adding that it is the vehicle that enables nations and people to realise their aspirations, social equity and economic development.
