    "The prize is the brainchild of Sudanese-born telecommunications mogul Mo Ibrahim, whose foundation earlier this year launched the "Ibrahim Index of African Governance".

    Africa supporting Africans

    "Former United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan announced in London today that Chissano has been awarded the Mo Ibrahim Prize for Achievement in African Leadership. Chissano will receive U.S. $5 million over the next 10 years, and $200,000 annually for the rest of his life.

    In addition, the Mo Ibrahim Foundation will pay up to U.S. $200,000 a year towards activities and causes identified by Chissano. The prize exceeds the Nobel Peace Prize in value."


    That is one nice prize!

    It sure is. A telecommunications mogul! We definitely need to start thinking globally and look beyond-way beyond-the small expectations we have here in the untitled snakes of a merry cow.
