While the economies in much of Africa have been showing significant growth rates, there has been no commensurate improvement in the living standards and quality of life in much of Africa. Indeed, nearly 700 million people are still without electricity; nearly 400 million do not have access to safe water; and nearly 40% of people in Africa do not have access to hospitals and clinics.
In what ways have Africa’s leaders, since independence, contributed to either perpetuating and/or solving these challenges facing the African continent? And does the current crop of African leaders have the vision, commitment, and capabilities of moving Africa forward in the implementation of sustainable solutions to Africa’s development challenges? In short, is there a need for a radical shift in the leadership paradigm in Africa? These and other related questions will be addressed at this public lecture.
