Ibrahim Prize #2

leave a comment »

In the second year of the Ibrahim Prize, perhaps this is on the mind of all current and future African leaders. One has to hope that good will come of the prizes awarded to Joaquim Chissano (Ibrahim I) and Festus Mogae (Ibrahim II), but the greater hope is that the value of future good governance far outweighs the cost of the prize.

Elizabeth Dickinson writes on Foreign Policy’s blog that improving the image of African leaders is an equally valid argument for the prize.
