Prof. Lumumba, Julius Malema, Peter Obi to speak at The Convention 2024
New Africa Foundation will be hosting The Convention 2024, a magnificent event that will take place on January 7th, 2024 at the remarkable Kwame Nkrumah Independence Square in Ghana. This date coincides with Ghana’s Constitution Day, highlighting the significance of the occasion.
The Convention 2024 promises to embrace all aspects of African excellence, bringing together thought leaders, artists, and a diverse audience representative of every segment, community, and group that defines the country—a microcosm of the vast and diverse continent. It is set to be a truly unique and exceptional gathering.
In collaboration with Afrokids, the New Africa Foundation will also be participating in a charitable initiative at the event. As part of these activities, 5,000 pairs of shoes will be given to underprivileged individuals, creating an environment where everyone can feel valued and included.
We are honored to announce an exceptional lineup of speakers for The Convention 2024. Joining us will be Dr. Arikana Chihombori-Quao, an inspiring leader and Pan-African advocate from Zimbabwe. Dr. Chihombori-Quao’s medical background and commitment to fostering unity among African nations and the diaspora have paved the way for collaboration in various fields. Her efforts in empowering women, promoting gender equality, and championing education and healthcare initiatives have created a lasting impact that transcends borders.
We are also delighted to welcome Professor P. L. O. Lumumba, a highly esteemed African legal scholar and passionate advocate for good governance and Pan-Africanism from Kenya. With his tenure as the former Director of the Kenya Anti-Corruption Commission and his ability to deliver compelling speeches on African politics and socio-economic challenges, Lumumba has achieved global recognition. His influence remains vibrant as he continues to pursue African unity and development, inspiring the youth and championing justice.
From South Africa, we are honored to have Julius Malema, a dynamic and influential politician who has captured the hearts of many with his unwavering commitment to social justice and economic equality. Malema, as the founder and leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), has led a passionate crusade for the rights of marginalized individuals and the transformation of South Africa’s economic landscape. Recognizable by his distinctive red beret symbolizing the fight for justice, Malema’s charisma and eloquence have endeared him to a diverse range of supporters who appreciate his bold vision for a more inclusive and equitable society.
Lastly, we are privileged to have Peter Obi, a luminary in Nigerian politics known for his unwavering integrity and exceptional leadership acumen. With a background in economics and a successful career in business, Obi brings a unique combination of financial astuteness and social consciousness to the political arena. Serving as the Governor of Anambra State from 2006 to 2014, Obi garnered acclaim for his transformative policies, with a primary focus on education, healthcare, and infrastructure. His frugality and responsible financial management earned him the nickname “the Okwute”—a symbol of his unwavering dedication to the welfare of his people.
