  Based on my analysis, in order for the multi-party system to lead for “more” democracy, there should be a strong political culture in the country, good coalition potential, i.e. parties may be scattered along the political spectrum (represent quite big ideological difference), but they should have common interests and goals. Kenya has been going through a period of political reform since , when section 2A of the constitution, which had made Kenya a de jure one-party state, was repealed.   The African political arena is so complex and diverse. Each and every African country is unique in its own way, with regard to the political sphere.

Nonetheless, the emergence of more than one recognised political grouping and the appearance of multi-party politics, as is the case now in Uganda, is not necessarily the same as democracy. There is thus a hazardous tendency to call a system ‘democratic’ simply because the incumbent government (in this case, NRM-O) says that it is.
