#WEFAfrica Update: South Africa’s Lindiwe Mazibuko Thinks Africa Has A Leadership Vacuum

Updates From the World Economic Forum Africa 2017.

On the Panel themed Leadership in the era of disruption, Lindiwe Mazibuko, a South African politician and former leader of the opposition expressed her reservation about the quality of leadership in Africa and called for a new generation of leaders to do a better job of addressing the continent’s challenges.

According to Mazibuko,  “Africa has a leadership vacuum … the current crop of Africa’s leaders have failed to deliver, yet we’re asking what these same leaders can do to make it better.”

“We need a different line of understanding of what leadership in an African society is, beyond politics and business, into the non-profit, into civil society, into churches, schools, communities. We need to redefine leadership.”
