Annan asserted that the current poor state of Africa is as a result of old aged men in power. The peace keeping icon made this amusing remark at the just ended world changers summit which was held in Namibia.
“Africa has great values to depend upon, Africa could be independent, but we have too many old men at the presidency, some are above 70yrs, and what do you expect them to do?”.
This shocking view was made to inspire Africans to choose a more younger and better men and women into power rather than old men. Ghana is a typical example where the peace maker hails from.
check the list below to see the number of African leaders Kofi Annan is talking about.
African politicians must learn to retire at a minimum age of 70yrs, but rather we have packed old men in our leadership, how could we move forward.
Some are even above 80yrs and still ruling.
