The former South African President, Nelson Mandela, once said:
Real leaders must be ready to sacrifice all for the freedom of their people.
This notion of servant leadership is one that continues to tease Africa’s political elite today. Yesterday’s struggle for freedom has largely become a battle of details and varying degrees concerning accountability, transparency, and service delivery. As many countries on the continent work to outstretch the shadows of economic uncertainty and political lethargy with indeterminate strongholds of power, some leaders have difficulty finding their place in the sun.
