The Speaker of The National Assembly, Hon. Fabakary Tombong Jatta urged African lawmakers to leverage their constitutional authority to enact laws safeguarding African family values and national sovereignty.

Speaker Jatta delivered these remarks at the ongoing 2nd African Inter-Parliamentary Conference on Family Values and Sovereignty held in Kampala, Uganda. The conference theme is “The Emerging Global Challenges Threatening African Sovereignty, Family, and Values.”

He emphasised the detrimental impact of factors like politics, tribalism, and religion, which have been misused to sow discord and perpetuate violence across the globe, particularly in Africa. He stressed the responsibility of parliamentarians to enact robust legislation, establish oversight mechanisms, and build strong institutions to combat these threats.
