United Nations Economic Commission for Africa. (2013). An African Governance Report III: Elections & the Management of Diversity, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia: UNECA, 2013.
A Report Review by Mwalimu George Ngwane (Presented at Hotel Sawa Douala on 2nd December 2014).
In the past three months, I have been solicited to do book reviews for three different publications. The common thread that runs through them is Governance.
I am honoured and humbled to be here to review this Report and wish to thank the organisers for placing confidence in my task to share my thoughts on the latest African Governance Report whose focus is “Elections and the Management of Diversity”.
Like I mentioned earlier the three publications I have had the opportunity to review all dwell on the theme of Governance. This indicates the importance and impact Governance has on the lives of both leaders and citizens especially in Africa. Governance still remains an inclusive democratic architecture which is informed by what Environmentalists call “Thinking Globally and Acting locally”. Governance still remains a development entitlement that speaks to the welfare, sustainable livelihood and economic empowerment of the common weal.
