Before the days of modern day parliament, where ministers and the army convene, there used to be tree parliaments in every village in Afrika, headed by the elders, most often, women. Parliament life was based on community and conducted in the best interest of societies. They were highly respected and celebrations took place through local dances. Where they were once run by women who made decisions for the good of our children, now we have a patriarchy. This is the Lost Afrikan Parliament.
