What you need to know:

  • Once they return from China, the officials will go to their counties to introduce a uniform mode to create cohesion in the giant Jubilee Party.
  • This training will be complemented by about 300 Chinese officials from the Communist Party who are expected to travel to Kenya.
  • There are those who point out that China is not the best country to look up to when it comes to democracy since the state maintains a tight control in the country.
  • Parties like ODM tend to associate themselves with the African National Congress and Chama Cha Mapinduzi in Tanzania.
  • In China, there are eight other parties in the political system but they are almost entirely subservient to the Communist Party.

At least 50 members of the newly-launched Jubilee Party are preparing for a trip to China to deepen ties with the Asian giant’s Communist Party.
