Lead You: Notes to Young Africans on Creating a Representative Continent

Despite several decades of so-called independence from colonial rule, representative government has largely remained elusive in many African countries, compromised by systemic corruption and political tyranny.

Indeed, the future ought to be brighter for a continent that consistently ranks as having the youngest demographic in the world.

‘Lead You’ explores the perception of what good leadership could entail in a continent where it’s so urgently needed, encouraging young Africans to shift from externalizing and pedestalizing it to cultivating it within to influence change.
