3. Leadership and Governance Structure Cluster

The future of Africa will rise and fall on the quality of leaders that the continent raises up and puts into positions of authority. It is therefore critical that new leadership understanding and competency be established on the continent that brings the best of global leadership practices but also brings in the uniqueness of leadership practises that are foundational in Africa culture. Likewise, governance structures will need to be developed that incorporate unique cultural wisdom so that governance on the continent is based on the mutual needs of the continent. This cluster will carry the mandate to develop this and disseminate it through traditional leadership structures, governments, non-profit organisations and businesses across the continent.
