African leaders and the AU encouraged to address peace and security challenges in Africa18.05.2018
The African Leadership Forum (ALF) was conceived of as a space for Africa’s eminent elders to interact with current and future leaders around the strategic challenges facing the Continent. The dialogues are to comprehend the leadership issues that are behind the implementation of solutions to Africa’s sustainable development challenges, and that rarely find space for reflection and engagement. The Forum draws upon the experiences and insights of former Heads of State to guide decision-makers through the trials and tribulations of leading change on the Continent.
Since inception (2014), six Forums have been convened by H.E. Benjamin William Mkapa, former President of the United Republic of Tanzania and organised by UONGOZI Institute. Participants represent public, private, and civil society organisations and actors. Particularly those engaged at the regional and continental levels. ALF reflects on the institutional context(s) of Africa – where there are impediments, where there is potential, what is lacking, what is worth persevering with, and what is going well. In this way, it goes beyond merely an event, and is evolving into a community of eminent Africans concerned for and with the greater good of the Continent and her people.
ALF serves as a platform where African leaders come to be equipped, inspired and enabled to steward sustainable development and transformation on the Continent, for the Continent, by the Continent.
Due to the sudden passing of the Patron of the African Leadership Forum, H.E. Benjamin William Mkapa – former President of the United Republic of Tanzania, this year’s Forum which was due to take place from 29 – 30 July has been postponed until further notice.
