Mo Ibrahim African Leaders Prize Unclaimed Again
The world’s most valuable individual prize – the Mo Ibrahim prize for good governance in Africa – has gone unclaimed yet again.
The $5m (£3.2m) prize is supposed to be awarded each year to an elected leader who governed well, raised living standards and then left office.
This is the fourth time in five years there has been no winner.
A committee member said the group looked “for excellence in governance but in leadership also”.
Kenya’s Mwai Kibaki met at least one of the criteria, after he stepped down as president earlier this year.
