African leaders are widely considered to be the major contributors to stunted development and poverty in Africa. Of the ten countries considered least developed in the world, nine are in sub-Saharan Africa, judging by the Human Development Index (HDI). Economists with expertise on Africa have argued that Africans need to establish strong institutions, fight internal corruption and rely less on foreign aid to build Africa’s economy in order to achieve strong and sustainable development. This paper explores the perennial leadership challenges and uneven developmental trajectory in Africa and subsequently suggest sustainable templates for Africa’s future development.
