For a society to function effectively it requires leaders who work for the good of the people, those who work to ensure equal rights, liberty and justice for all. In Western media, African leaders are portrayed as despotic, power crazed villains, who allow corruption to thrive through bad systems of governance and patronage. Though this is correct in some cases, there are many examples of inspiring African leaders who have fought for justice and stood up for the rights of the people. The Just African Leaders series will shed light on some of the most renowned African leaders who have lived through history.
