The question of leadership and governance are broad and often intricate to fathom with precision and certainty. This is especially true in a public sphere where there are many actors who offer antithetic interests to the society. For example, an establishment of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU), which later evolved to become the African Union (AU) has been attempting to pontificate the epistle of Africa and its people to translate their leadership and governance errands into refulgent prospects. This has been happening for decades with the resultant decolonisation agenda and subsequently with South Africa obtaining freedom from the shackles of its apartheid system. These systems (colonisation and apartheid) did not only dehumanise people, but treated them as if they did not exist in all the societal spheres, including in government.
