Africa: No winner for African Leadership

The Mo Ibrahim Foundation, which annually hands a $5 million dollar prize for good governance in Africa, failed to find a winner this year, writes The African Press Agency. “The Prize Committee has considered some credible candidates. However, after in-depth review, the Prize Committee could not select a winner,” the committee said in a statement. Former South African President, Thabo Mbeki and Ghana’s ex-President John Kufior were among those eligible this year. The prize in African leadership is awarded each year to a democratically elected former African President or Prime Minister who has left office in the past three years. The prize is the largest individual award in the world with the winner receiving $5 million plus $200,000 a year for life.
