HOW THE LEADERS RANK
GOVERNANCE:THE A-LISTERS
These leaders respectdemocratic process,stimulate businessgrowth,undertake effectivedevelopment pro-grammes to lift theirpopulations out of poverty and refrainfrom provocative orwarlike actions.These outstandingfew tend to be bril-liantly educated, havethe sterling creden-tials one would ex-pect of world leaders,and can use diplo-matic charm to se-cure bigger foreignaid donations:John Evans AttaMills, President of Ghana.Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, President of Liberia.Ernest Bai Koroma,President of SierraLeone.Paul Kagame,President of Rwanda(above).Navinchandra Ram-goolam, Prime Minis-ter of Mauritius.James Alix Michel,President of Sey-chelles.Pedro Verona Ro-driques Pires, Presi-dent of Cape Verde.Seretse Khama IanKhama, President of Botswana.
LONG-REIGNING TYRANTS
These megalomaniacshave kept their coun-tries locked in govern-ance chokeholds foryears, and in somecases for longer thanfour decades.They have hijacked thedestinies of their na-tions, sucking up allpolitical oxygen andmonopolising politicalspace.They tend to grow in-creasingly eccentric andparanoid as their reignsstretch on.Preferred is an almostroyalist-style of govern-ance, reminiscent of French King Louis XIV’sfamous remark: “etat,c’est moi’) there ismuch blood on thesehands, which oftentook power throughcoups, wars or mur-ders.Muammar Gaddafi,leader of Libya since1969.Teodoro Obiang,President of Equato-rial Guinea since 1979.José Eduardo dosSantos, President of Angola since 1979.Hosni Mubarak,President of Egyptsince 1982.Paul Biya, Presidentof Cameroon since1982.Yoweri Museveni,President of Ugandasince 1986Robert Gabriel Mu-gabe, President of Zimbabwe since 1987.Blaise Compaore,President of BurkinaFaso since 1987.Omar al-Bashir,President of Sudansince 1993.Isaias Afwerki,President of Eritreasince 1993.Meles Zenawi, PrimeMinister of Ethiopiasince 1995.
THE ILL-GOTTENGOODS GANG
Anti-corruptionNGO TransparencyInternational is hoton the heels of Af-rican leaders whohave embezzledstate funds andstashed them inFrance.Included in theirvast assets arestuffed bank ac-counts, million-dol-lar properties andfleets of luxurycars.But these crooksmay not keep theseassets for long, asFrance∆s top ap-peals court has au-thorised an inquiryinto their ill-gottengoods.The late OmarBongo, former pres-ident of the Gabon(father of Gabon’s currentpresident).Teodoro Obiang,President of Equato-rial Guinea.Denis SassouNguesso, Presidentof the Republic of Congo.Paul Biya, Presi-dent of the Repub-lic of Cameroon(above).
DADDY’S BOYS
Perhaps the truesttestament to a totallack of democracyis when a son ornephew, groomedsince birth as aprincely successorinherits leadershipfrom an ailing ordead father.While successionis not surprisingamong the few re-maining kings, it isdeeply unsettlingthat this has caughton with some of thecontinent’s more vi-cious dictators.Here are some dic-tatorships that havebecome dynasties,or are likely to soon:Ali Ben BongoOndimba, Presidentof Gabon.Faure Gnassingbe,President of Togo.Teodoro Obiang,President of Equato-rial Guinea (above).Joseph Kabila,President of theDemocratic Repub-lic of Congo.Ismail OmarGuelleh, President of Djibouti.Mohammed VI,King of Morocco.Mswati III, Kingof Swaziland.
