Opposition parties often create conflict and unrest by stirring the large group of "unthinking" public into violent action. It is often the politician that is able to deceive the public the most who gained power in the first place.
Sadly these same politicians often forget the very people who voted them in as soon as they are elected.
The "unthinking" public can be stirred to devotion, loyalty and peace if they experience their leader's efforts to improve their standard of living and protection.
In Africa it is the working (or unemployed) class who puts politicians in power. It is the same working class the opposition will use to topple him/her from power.
Caring for the needs of the workers and the unemployed is the best political move a politician can make.
