The late and ex UN secretary general Kofi Annan disclosed that the present poor province of Africa is basically because of old aged men in power.
The peace keeping symbol made this amusing comment at the just finished world changers to summit which took place in Namibia.
Joint Special Envoy Kofi Annan spoke with the media at the United Nations Office at Geneva following the June 30, 2012 Meeting of the Action Group for Syria.
“Africa has great values to depend upon, Africa could be independent, but we have too many old men at the presidency, some are above 70 years, 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 80 years and still ruling’ said Kofi Annan
