Plan for a better Africa

A Sudanese billionaire is putting up millions in prize money to promote good governance in Africa and to encourage leaders on the world’s poorest continent to step down once their democratic mandates have expired.

In a world where dictator after dictator are ruling most African countries, this is a very good initiative to try and persuade rulers to do the right thing, and even make sure that democracy actually operates by the time they leave office. While money should not be the No1 incentive for this, if it works, why not? This is a first step towards a better Africa, very clever.
