Mo Ibrahim deserves an award, but so does the Aga Khan | African Politics and Policy

A few days ago we reported the comments of an African journalist who argued that Mo Ibrahim deserves an award. Mo Ibrahim deserves it for his commitment to promoting and preserving democracy, in a continent where democracy is often rather frail, and for his efforts to improve the quality of African governments.

But, in fairness, Mo Ibrahim is not the only person who deserves an award.

The Aga Khan also deserves an award for setting up universities, clinics, medical centers, and hospitals; for his efforts to promote development, (higher) education and health; for doing more than anybody to ensure that (East) Africans enjoy longer, better and healthier lives.

So while we are very happy to read in the press that Mo Ibrahim should be rewarded for his philantropic activities, we believe that the Aga Khan should be rewarded as well.

One thought

  1. Surely since Mo is for democracy etc .. for a long time, that alone is not enough but what The Aga Khan has done
    for African Countries in building Hospitals, Schools, and a lot more does definitely deserve an award and has been awarded so many and the quote “He is a King without a Throne” is true. He is everywhere in the world promoting education, health, etc..
