Opposition leaders McHenry Venaani and Julius Malema have called on the Pan-African Parliament to grow some teeth in order to function effectively as an oversight body instead of a conglomeration of delegates from different countries. Speaking at the ongoing PAP ordinary session in Midrand, South Africa, Venaani also took issue with their West and North African counterparts over their perceived dominance over the PAP, African Union and other institutions on the continent, accusing the Anglophone and Francophone nations of using their numerical advantage to suppress their southern African counterparts.
