Ibrahim Criticises Africa's Ageing Leaders

Sudanese-born billionaire, Mo Ibrahim, has castigated Africa's ageing leaders for crowding out young blood.

The philanthropist, who also founded the Mo Ibrahim Foundation, argues that the average age of leaders on the African continent is around 60 years, yet half of the population was under the age of 19.

Speaking at a lecture in honour of Nelson Mandela, the businessman drew comparisons between African and American leaders, where President Barack Obama became president at the 47 whereas former President, Bill Clinton, became president when he was 46.
